Accessible Representative No. 2

The second MP's blog; and this one hand-codes his HTML on his Red Hat box at weekends. Richard Allan is the Lib Dem IT spokesman and sits on the Information Select Committee. Posts so far have eschewed the political in favour of explanations of parliamentary procedure and the trials of multiple-browser website design. Richard conforms to the rule that only MPs younger than me are allowed to have blogs. Update: Turns out Richard Allan and I share something in common; unease about overly enthusiastic implementation of electronic voting. Apparently it was possible, in Sheffield, for many people to vote twice (though there's no evidence that anyone did):

The lack of security was introduced as the lesser of two evils when compared with the alternative which would have been to turn people away from any polling station that was offline or make them wait during the evening slowdown. It would have been unacceptable to keep turning people away or make them wait hours.
