Demorcacy Audit


TASC released earlier today the results of the Democratic Audit which they had been carrying out. What i thought might be some institutional evaluation or oversight report, turned out to be a survey of attitudes of irish voters.
Still some interesting highlights and insights into how the electorate sees its system.
1)interestingly only roughly 5% of the electorate see a full free market economy as the major factor in a democracy (roughly equal to PD support surprise surprise)
2)Most voters value a fair society highest at around 40%
we always knew there was a progressive consensus there to be forged!!
Incidentally also very interesting is the result that 66% of the electorate support extending social and employment rights to non-nationals in this country.
Im going to keep perusing it and from time to time make some major profound points. or you can simply read it yourselves.
