Comparison websites are very popular these days - there's that one with the annoying faux tenor in their ad's, and that one with the meerkats that my boss likes, and loads more besides. And now, thanks to the inestimable BBC, there's a comparison website for political parties in the run-up to the General Election on May 6th. Simply select an area of policy (environment, health, education - you get the idea) and any three political parties (that can be the big three, regional parties, niche parties or any combination thereof) and a comparison of their policies in that area is presented for your reading pleasure. In an age of information overload, this is a godsend, and could potentially help many floating voters make an informed choice. If only it were better publicised...

The BBC's policy comparison website is here - if you have even the faintest interest in politics (and if you've ever complained about anything in any of the policy areas then you have an interest in politics, whether you know it or not) then please take a look at this site, use it and tell everyone you know to do the same. In an age of increasing voter apathy and growing support for distasteful fringe parties (you know who I'm talking about) it's never been more important that people get involved in politics, and a tool like this can help. Whatever the colour of your rosette, please spread the word and, you know, go compare!
