We don’t provide a blog or a forum – it is meant as stimulus or starting point for you to argue amongst yourselves, or with yourself. However, if you notice any typos or errors of fact, or if you think something important is missing, feel free to click here to email us. We don’t need to know what you think or how you vote – we do just need to know that you are thinking and that you will vote. Don’t just passively pay the price then regret it; inspect the goods and ask questions.
