Contacting the candidates

I emailed all five Morley PPCs last night asking them their views on ID cards and how they were rated on the worlds smallest political quiz.

Robert Finnigan responded today, he tells me he scored as a Liberal (in the American sense).

LIBERALS usually embrace freedom of choice in personal matters, but tend to support significant government control of the economy. They generally support a government-funded "safety net" to help the disadvantaged, and advocate strict regulation of business. Liberals tend to favor environmental regulations,defend civil liberties and free expression, support government action to promote equality, and tolerate diverse lifestyles.

His comments on ID cards? "I disagree with ID cards as they are expensive and do not work and you can't trust this bunch with the information given."

Quite. How very perceptive of him.
