£1 million prize for crowdsourcing voters website

In a move to capture the crowdsourcing Zeitgeist of current popular web applications, the Conservative party last week proposed a competition for the development of an online tool to harness the knowledge the collective wisdom of the UK population.

Quite what the tool will be used for, nobody really knows; as its just an idea as-yet until they most-likely get into power later this year. But then, perhaps that's what the first task for the tool should be... agreeing what it should be used for next!

Given the Christmas success story of social media stopping Simon Cowell's latest X-Factor protege getting to the top of the UK charts, and Mr Cowell's next planned move into Reality Politics... perhaps he should invest in such a service too.....
