How to use this chart.
 (for those of us who struggle with bus time tables)














That's pretty cool.

Yeah I know. Charts are excellent because they cram a lot of information into a tiny space and won't try and shake your hand or pretend to be nice. 

Charts allow us to research and add lower priority topics like water charges or net neutrality without making you read paragraphs of text. No, they won't flip the election but some of us worry about the little things! 

We'll be adding more topics to this chart over the next few days. 


One thing though..

There are in fairness situations where it’s not just a yes or no answer. For example, labour and the ULA are both raising and lowering income tax for the rich and poor respectively. So are Labour raising income tax? The answer is yes, but not for most of us. Some things need to be described in a line or two which is why the site can't ALL be charts.
