Debategraph: Dissecting the Conservative - Liberal Democrat Coalition Agreement
Friday 14 May 2010
As part of
The Independent’s visual mapping of the election and its aftermath, we have broken down the Conservative - Liberal Democrat Coalition Agreement into
an interactive visual graph, that lets you comment on and rate each of the proposals.
By surfacing their shared agenda for the next Parliament explicitly in this way, the Conservatives and Lib Dems have given the electorate an unusually swift and detailed opportunity to give feedback on the proposals they have drawn together in our name.
Both parties have also avowed the desire to open public policy deliberation to wider public input online during the coming parliament; so it’s a timely opportunity as well to consider to what degree—under the intense pressure they faced and in a closed rather than open process—the negotiating teams were able find an agreement close to a mutual optimum.
To see how the interactive graph relates to original text—and to log-in to conribute— click here or on the plus button below the map.
As well as rating and commenting, you can use the interactive graph to add arguments for and against the Coalition proposals and to suggest alternative ideas that might have been missed.
So, in the new spirit of collaboration, what do you make of the agreement?
As with the other maps in the series you can you can keep up to date with the subsequent developments via the Independent Minds blog and @TheIndyDebate on Twitter. And you are welcome to embed the map on your own website or blog (like a Google map) using the code shown below:
