An idea worth spreading
Several years ago I came across a French website that in essence acted as a simplified accountability devise that targeted the political leader(s) of France. Anyone from anywhere, with internet, could access the site where it very clearly listed the responsibilities and promises of the political powers that be. Furthermore each responsibility and promise included a progress tracker (e.g. not done/underway/completed).
The reason such a website has once again come to the front of my mind is due to my recent move back to Ireland where one of the biggest problems we have is political accountability. I strongly believe that this is not a problem solely felt by the little island of Ireland but globally!
With the help of a few the masses could be educated as to the true accountability of their political leaders, in a non bias and coherent way. Unmask the political faces of the world with the facts!!!!
I'm passionate about
Making a difference while having fun and without it being at the loss of others.
