He’s done a heroic job, as has Matthew with his epic import of Hansard data from 1935 onwards. TheyWorkForYou is a much better site for their combined work recently. We’ll be writing more on the historic stuff soon.
There are a few things I’d like from you as a member of the mySociety community:
1. Please say a big thanks to Richard. This was not an easy or relaxing task at all, and he’s done it brilliantly. Just check a Lords debate to see the attention to detail. We are a very lucky organisation to have him, as he’s always in demand.
2. Please give some constructive criticism on how it could be even better (please note, focussing on design here, we already have a load of feature priorities to deliver).
3. Anyone who could help supply a redesigned logo, or some nicely processed parliamentary-themed artwork to sit in the background grey-boxes on the homepage would be doing a very Good Deed for mySociety.
And lastly, please do pledge to become a TheyWorkForYou Patron, so we can keep doing things like this in the future!
