2. The "Kent on Sunday" newspaper has arranged a question and answer
session with Gordon Brown. Apparently, Mr Brown has promised to answer
any questions the people of Kent may feel inclined to ask by sending
e-mails to Jamie.mcginnes@....
If you want to ask a question, you need to live in Kent, and you need to
prove this by giving your address. You also need, for some reason, to
give your age.
If, however, you are able to meet these conditions, you might wish to
consider asking a question similar to mine given below:
Kent on Sunday
Dear Mr McGinnes,
I have just read your article on the front page of the latest issue of
"Kent on Sunday", in which you say that Gordon Brown is inviting ordinary
readers to submit questions for him to answer. He says: "I look forward
to reading and responding to the points you raise."
This is very exciting, as I have never had the opportunity before to
question a Prime Minister. It is surely a proud moment for our democracy.
Aged 48, I am an ordinary person. I live in Deal, which is part of the
area you cover. You can see my full address at the foot of my message.
Here is my question for Mr Brown:
"Before the last election, the Government in which you were the second
most senior member promised us a referendum before seeking to ratify a
European Constitution. The Treaty of Lisbon is, according to other
European heads of government, between 90 and 98 per cent identical to
that Constitution. Why, then, are you now denying us our referendum?"
I am sure many other readers are asking this question. I look forward to
your putting it or something very like it to Mr Brown..
