LDV members’ survey – MPs' expenses special – now live

by Stephen Tall on May 19, 2009

The new LDV members’ survey is now live – this one focuses exclusively on the hot topic of MPs’ expenses. So if you are a registered member of the Liberal Democrat Voice forum – and any paid-up party member is welcome to join – then you now have the opportunity to make your views known. Questions we are asking your opinion on include:

– your views on MPs in general and the Telegraph’s reporting;
– which party you think has been hardest hit by the allegations;
– which Lib Dem MPs named by the Telegraph you think have questions to answer;
– whether you think those Lib Dem MPs who’ve admitted mistaken claims should be punished;
– how you think Nick Clegg has handled the issue;
– who you think should replace Speaker Martin; and
– how you think the party should respond to the allegations against party chief executive Lord (Chris) Rennard.

It should take no longer than 5-10 minutes to fill in. All registered members of the Forum should by now have been emailed with a link to take you to the survey. If you haven’t been yet, or if you are signing up to the Forum now, please drop Ryan Cullen a line at ryan@libdemvoice.org

We’ll publish the results within the next few days. You can access the results from our previous LDV members surveys by clicking here.

Would have been interesting to see a question on the decision of the Scottish leader Tavish Scott to refuse to follow Nick by saying the MSPs wouldn’t profit from their Parliament funded homes. He is holding out (against the tide of public opinion) for himself and a few other MSPs to have the right to make money when they sell their Edinburgh homes. Maybe a LDV survey would convince him how stupid he is being?
