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???

+Richard Lanagan well 15 years out of the country and owns their home abroad... But then if they sell up and start wanting to move back to the UK maybe lookingnat buying a home here again then I'd say they were interested in coming back... But again if you have been outside a country for 15 years you really shouldn't have a say in how its run especially as you're living in another country... Go tell that country how it should be run!!!! I wouldn't expect to have a say in anything from an employer from 15 years ago... So same deal

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.
