My name is Ivor Whitten and I run my own blog called Hand of History NI (www.handofhistoryni.blogspot.com).
I am trying out an experiment for this General Election, and I hope your candidates will be able to find enough time to be involved.
I am sending all the parties four questions for their candidates to answer. What answers I receive I will publish (untouched, apart form any typos) up on my blog for the world to see.
The questions are,
- Why are you standing for election?
- What is important to you in life?
- What will you bring to the post of MP that others will not?
- At the end of your term in office as MP what will you have achieved?
The length of answer should be no more than 140 words for each question.
I do hope you can help distribute this amongst your candidates for the Westminster Election.
Thank you for your time, and all the best for the campaign.
