Do you think that your MP needs some training on real world issues before they make a decision that will impact upon you? Cliff from Positech certainly thinks so. He is of the opinion that most politicians aren’t qualified for the job, but he has a remedy.
Cliff is offering a free copy of his political strategy game; Democracy 2, to any elected official, be they from the UK, US or anywhere else in the world.
This is an interesting idea, it will be worth waiting to see if this picks up any mainstream coverage, and to find out if any MPs take Cliff up on his offer.

I would vote for it to be the best game this year if I could. Honest guv!
