Ppl who have lived abroad for upto 15 YEARS(!) get a vote in _OUR_ elections? Surely a devious Tory plot to gerrymander an already highly massaged system of 'representation'. Where's the justice in that? (Oh, I forgot, Expats use 'YesMastercard', for everyone else it's 'Visa')

Regarding that Whitehall analysis if the government thinks UC and it's implementation is the best possible course of action why not release it, it's not a matter of national security and would promote debate, possibly giving the opposition some clarity if the Minister thinks the opposition is confused.

Too slow and too long. I love the idea but It would be better if it was less detailed. This is becoming like politics TV show which no one watches even though they're useful and full info. The key is is packing as much as you can in the smallest amount of time people are willing to offer a video. Based on similar educational channels, the videos needs to be around 7 minutes

Really great! 5/5. One suggestion: when a vote is roughly 50-50, such as the 299 Noes 279 Ayes, can you indicate if the vote was whipped and if it was basically MPs voting along party lines please? Cheers :)

Universal Credit is, basically, a good idea, but the implementation of it is atrocious. Waiting 6 weeks for money just puts people that cannot afford debt into debt. Too many rich people in parliament who think everyone can dip into their savings to tide them over the 6 week period. In addition, there have to be controls on private rent or many more council houses built.

Why should anyone who hasn't lived in a country for over 15 years (and doesn't plan on returning either) be given anyway in how said country should be run???

+The Jim Reaper™ Consider the situation of my British expat friend in Belgium: After marrying a Belgium woman he worked for about 30 years in Germany, then retired to Belgium. That means that he cannot adopt Belgium or German citizenship at the moment (he will have to wait another 6 years or so). If we get a hard Brexit he will suddenly need special permission (possibly a visa) to drive across the Belgium/German border to visit me. That's just one example. I would say that Brexit somehow influenced the lives of all British Expats living in the EU. I accept your criticisms for those of us who moved to America or China but all the EU expats were very directly effected. I voted to join the EU all those years ago and feel that I should have been asked about the reverse decision.

+Martin Stent and as an Ex pat you can still come and go from the UK as you please??? But again why would you have any say in the BREXIT vote??? Again the guy selling the house you used to live in 30 years ago doesn't need you permission to sell it... We'd only been in the EU 11 years when you left 30 years ago!!! It doesn't matter which way you'd vote why should anyone who hasn't been in a country for 30 years have any say in its politics???

+The Jim Reaper™ Your criticism is correct. why should I have any say in the running of the UK? I have a mandate here in my adopted country. My real issue was with us expats not being able to vote on the leaving the EU issue. As I said, many of us felt that we had to adopt new nationalities as a result. I still think an "expat constituency" would be a good idea. Some of us still have strong ties with the UK through family and friends, and some of us not.

+Martin Stent not being funny bit if youve not lived in your old house for 30 years you dont get asked if new owner wants to change the front door? Why should you have any say in the countries future??? There are millions of people born within that 30 years who actually live here why should you have any say over their future??? Legitimate questions here by the way

It's a shame not as many people are watching these videos. The format is great for understanding what's going on but maybe people feel powerless about decisions made in Parliament so aren't as engaged. A video on what the public can do to influence what happens in Parliament and a link to the votes their MPs make on their behalf might increase engagement.

That vote on not releasing the effects of UC is a shame. Knowing that information is extremely important for understanding its impact and so its unlikely that any future vote on the bill will be properly informed. Shame on the Tories for trying to conseal that information just because they know its likely going to be politically unpopular.

We can also infer that by refusing to allow the documents to be shown that UC in this version is clearly going to rob the claimants of money they are entitled to and that the whitehall analysis is in some way going to reflect this. It's all political maneouvering to try and hurt the opponents voting base. The more claimants who end up homeless will end up being unable to take the time to vote. Also worth noting that many of these people would likely vote Labour or left wing parties who typically try to help the poor when in power. The conservatives are always trying to rip up the welfare state when in power and destroying any faith people have in a democracy, pushing us further toward the complete deadlock that is in the American politics. And resulting anti-educational movements.

The thing is with benefits is that it's families that have so little to live on. I've personally seen how much difference it can make once they loose that extra £100-200 really makes. It's truly sickening, How can we have the top One richest area in Northern Europe and the top Nine Poorest areas within the same tiny country, Trust me there is enough money to go around, look at any other European country and see how they fund the poorest and most needy people. This country continues to pressure the poorest families causing separation and suicide. History will look back on Austerity policies from this Tory government and see what it truly is, A true Evil of the modern age.

no no just not the immigrants (they boost our economy), blame the EU political structure and us sending money to them and everything else associated with them. The point being that everyone just wants to blame the EU for the mess we are in.

I think you should ditch the pithy remarks and sound effects in this particular video series. It doesn't fit the content and takes away from the credibility of what you're trying to achieve. Other than that, this is a great series so far.

What were the pithy remarks? I think I missed them with the possible exception of the Tory rejoinder to the SNP, which i felt was an interesting mix of cringe and fair enough.

I agree, great format but as soon as you move away from facts and add your own opinions and "pithy remarks", it makes it feel less unbiased and trustworthy. It is really hard to have an open discussion about politics without it turning into a "burn" competition but a channel like this can really allow factual conversations and debates to take place. Keep up the good work.

This is honestly such a good format. Really nicely summing up whats been been going on in Parliament but with nice polished graphics in a short enough time for people to pay attention to on a weekly basis. You might not have many subscribers now but trust me, short well made videos that come out on a regular basis are a sure fire way to get more subscribers. You just have to persistent and play the long game.
