I watched the Q&A tonight, where a large group of 18-25 year olds, were given the opportunity to ask questions of the PM. There was something inspiring about this, our elected leader, standing in a room, respondng to questions. A two way conversation between the elected leader, and the electors is a great exchange of information. I'm not sure whether it would impact or influence the PM's mind, but the dicusssion is valuable, hopefully the young people in the room left feeling their PM was accessible. Flowing from this - I'd love to see a situation like in the US, where the President took questions from the opposition. I don't know how or even if it would work, but the example of dialogue it would set if it did, would be great.
