UK Election 2010: YouTube Facebook Digital Debate Results

As expected, the results of the YouTube Facebook Digital Debate were posted today. The response was amazing — over 5,000 questions submitted and more than 180,000 votes on the questions.


Ten of the most popular questions from across five categories — Economy, Foreign Policy, Law & Order, Health and Education, and Miscellaneous — were submitted to the party leaders. Their video answers were recorded and then uploaded.

For example, ChuckE, Woking, Surrey, asked, “78% of the voting population didn’t vote for the government in the 2005 election, yet the government won a majority of seats and a “mandate” to govern. What do you plan to do to change this unrepresentative system and restore trust in the process?”

Here is Gordon Brown’s answer:
