    Everyone has the right to vote, so why should ex-cons be any different?

    Yes, on all charges: 0
    Yes, but only on the most serious charges (murder rape): 1
    No, not on any charges: 7
    Unsure: 0

    Poll 4
    On a scale of one to five (One being the lowest five being the highest) How much do companies need regulation when it comes to enviromental protection?

    1) 1
    2) 2
    3) 3
    4) 4
    5) 5
    6) Unsure



    Personally I think 4, companies cannot be trusted on matters like this.

    But, you can't force companies to change their ways of doing things.

    Maybe if the company is really guilty of doing something really bad, but not for small factories or whatever.

    Why not? If we didn't do that, we'd still have kids chained to machines, working for gruel in this country.

    It's way too broad a question to answer with a simple rating out of five, but if we are speaking so generally, I think it's clear that this is one area where the market fails as there is currently no effective pricing mechanism for environmental damage. Absent of a natural pricing impact for such factors, the government does need to put in place some kind of regulation, both to outlaw and enforce the banning of outright anti-social actions, and also to build in some kind of pricing impact for environmental impact - I don't know whether any carbon trading scheme etc to date has done so effectively, but we need to make a start at getting this right.

    Once pricing accurately reflects what we value, then the regulation will become largely irrelevant as the market functions properly again.

    So for now: 4 out of 5.

    5, in the sense that if there's an environmental law, and they breach it, then they should be regulated in accordance with it.

    But if we're talking about how serious the laws themselves should be, I'd say 4 as well.

    1

    If you over regulate companies like that, they will just up sticks and move to somewhere else, usually China, where they don't have to worry

    2 or 3. Ill go with 3

    I wouldnt trust big business to regulate itself but over-regulation is always a disaster and I wouldnt trust the priorities of the people proposing and promoting the environmental law changes.

    I watchful eye is what is required rather than a controlling hand.

    Haha, no way mate. Democracy is all about choice, so why not the choice not to vote?

    Nah, I agree with Matt. A government won't be a true representation of the people unless it's decided on by everyone.

    But by forcing everybody to vote, you're taking away the biggest part about democracy. It's not like everybody is going to vote anyway, even if it is compulsory.

    Seriously though, have never understand the whole "If you don't vote, you aren't American/Australian/whatever" that seems to crop up with compulsory voting.

    I couldnt think of anything worse (well I probably could but I get sickened by the idea of compulsory voting)

    Choice and commitment are they key. If I dont want to endorse a candidate, I dont see why I should be forced to do so by someone that insists I do. Also, if I cant be bothered then I should be allowed to sit on my fat arse if I want to.

    "Oh, but you could spoil the ballot"

    Seriously? Im going to do all that just because Im told I have to!

    Voting, and associated choices, are between a man and his conscience. Noone else.
