What will you ask the politicians that knock on your door?

I asked a few friends to compile a short list and this what i got so far! (mine is at the end). I will post up others as soon as i get them

Seamas De Faoite, Dublin:

1. Will you listen to young people
2. Will you get The Americans out of shannon
3. Will you look-after local schools
4. Will you work with other politicians
5. Will you work hard to defeat anti-social behaviour

Samuel Bowman, Cork:

1) Would you be supportive of the American use of Shannon airport and the broader war on terror (I will be looking for a yes, and if any candidate impressed me with a huge support for America I’d vote for them regardless of any other factors)
2) Would you cut taxes, and if so, which ones? (I will be looking for a pledge to reduce corporation tax and the upper rate of income tax as well as the abolition of stamp duty and capital gains tax)
3) Would you support the introduction of ASBOs? (I’ll want a yes here, the tougher the better except on drugs issues)
4) Would you ever be prepared to go into government with Sinn Féin? (if yes, I’ll slam the door in their face)
5) Would you support the introduction of civil partnerships for homosexuals with equal parenting and adoption rights for homosexual couples? (I will want a yes here, particularly on the parenting issue)

Stephen Spillane, me!!!, Cork:

1. What will you do to tackle the huge problem with mental health services, particularly with the issue of youth suicide?
2. Will you work ensure that Cork Airport is kept competive by making sure it is dept free?
3. What are tyour piorities if you are elected?
4. What transport intiatives do you support for Cork?
5. Do you think Cork as been neglected by the current Government and how will you address this?

Keep an eye for more to come!
