Swinson swings at Straw

Lib Dem Shadow Secretary of State for Scotland, and a finalist in the New Statesman New Media Awards last night Jo Swinson, has criticised his outspoken attacks on TheyWorkForYou:

“Mr Straw has seen fit to attack theyworkforyou.com for using ‘quantitative rather than qualitative’ measures to assess MPs’ performance. Sites like this are in their infancy, and while they are obviously not as sophisticated as Mr Straw would like, they represent a great step forward in terms of makings MPs visible, accessible and accountable, which is something I am sure he would welcome.”
