Just give them the answer

The European Parliament is never afraid to take on the status quo and to challenge common knowledge. For example, for a poll to be a poll, does it actually have to show results?

Not if you’re a maverick like the European Parliament. On the bottom left of the EP’s home page, something that looks suspiciously like a poll asks, “The role of MEP’s in one of the Parliament’s delegations is?” and provides four choices with clickable buttons. But there is no ‘Vote’ button. Instead, clicking on ‘Delegations’ takes you to the Delegations home page, complete with definition.

When is a poll not a poll?When is a poll not a poll?

And we have all learned something new.

Give Europeans a vote!

Many of us would argue that Europeans should pay more attention to the European Parliamentary elections. However, there is no denying that the outcome of the US Presidential elections in 2008 may have as much of an impact on our lives here in the Old Continent as it will in the New.

Henning Meyer, creator of the 1,000 strong army of activists on the PES 2009 Election Campaign group on Facebook, is endeavouring to give Europeans a voice in the selection of the Democratic nominee through an internet poll on the Social Europe blog.

Ok, so our American friends may not heed the advice. After all most of us could tell the incumbent is dud after about a nano-second. But it’s a decent exercise all the same. You can vote here.
