Join us in this first Democracy Focus event that we will be offering through InternetTV rather that through our webinar platform.

Nick De Bois MP has offered to pilot this with us by making this a Digital Public Meeting. Nick will engage with an audience about what  he thinks should be the top four priorities for the next post 2015 Government. You will then have an opportunity to question him on this and to also state what you believe the priorities should be.

You will be able to link directly to the TV Channel here .....

We will inform people about this through our different social networks and also through the Internet TV platform TVApex. Nick did an MP Focus webinar with us but has kindly agreed to be the first to pilot the Internet TV channel.

TVApex is working with us to extend our MP Focus event to a wider audience and we are now calling it Democracy Focus. TVApex shares our mission of using the new media to build bridges between communities and to renew democracy.

The Digital Public Meeting with Nick De Bois will be shown live on the TV channel and will also be recorded. Just as with the webinar you will be able ask questions by text but later we may also be able to provide video and telephone links.

So join us in this experiment in democracy in the digital age and with your guidance help us shape it to make it a real contribution to our national debate.

We will provide more information soon but we would welcome your comments about how this exciting initiative could develop.

    Thanks Francis, this is a great experiment and I think it is definitely worth to go ahead! Im from and living in Germany and it is very interesting to see, how these issues are discussed in the UK - to see similarities and differences.

    Thanks to Nick de Bois and to you Francis for an excellent meeting. It flowed, and many interesting points were made.
    Unfortunately it only lasted 45 mins here as there seemed to be some technical problems. Nevertheless a very useful experiment which I think was a success.

    Last night we did our first Democracy Focus programme on Internet TV through TVApex. We interviewed Nick De Bois MP for an hour with questions coming in from the a viewing audience. It was an event that has huge possibilities. It allows an audience to engage at length with an MP around several issues and if organised well can get the MP to talk about his own views and not that of his Party machine. We can learn what he is able to do and what not, what power and influence he or she has and again what not. It can create a new relationship with citizens where alliances can be formed with civil society and across Party barriers to address major issues.

    won't be attending, but it is coherent with ''movement''. tell nick to ask his fellow mps, when one says mps, one means cameron ''can one run from the tide? how far? you most definitely cannot hide it or from it. it's all over the news of the world!''

    kudos to de bois and the other fellow

    well done.

    Nick De Bois MP has agreed to be the first MP to be interviewed on Internet TV by members of the public. It is a Digital Public meeting. We hope to do many of these and Michael Meacher MP has now agreed to do a similar meeting in June. We are calling this Democracy Focus.

    Nick will answer questions on what he thinks are the four major priorities that the next Government (post 2015) should focus on. In his view they are,

    Knife crime and his amendment to legislation seeking mandatory sentences for carrying a knife - Employment – where there is much done more to do - Skills and training and - Public Health – A National Health Service or a National Illness Service – should we be taking better care of ourselves?

    You can join us at http://www.tvapex.com/watch.aspx?i=936&j=Test-Channel%20936&k=search and you will be able to send in your questions live to Nick De Bois. This will take place on Monday May 12th at 7.30pm UK time.
