They Work For You was launched at yesterday's NotCon '04 by the people who brought you Fax Your MP. It makes Hansard accessible, via search facilities (by MP or by topic), with each individual speech presented as a separate, linkable entry. Get an RSS feed of your own MP's speeches, hold them to account over their special interests, but most of all, don't forget to vote this week!

This is great. It's a shame it's not a general election, really.

All my British political friends are in some despair. The lefties have no one to vote for, unless they happen to be in the constituency of a Labour back-bench dissident. The moderates see the Liberal Democrats fast moving to the left of Labour, perhaps leaving moderates no one to vote for, either. Tories see their party has hapless and hopeless.
