  1. I prefer it if TNG simply doesn’t publish those who didn’t reply as they push down articles that deserve our attention away from the main page. Can you compile all of those who did not reply into one article?

    Too busy minding his own business through proxies to have the time to provide TNG a decent reply. He may think that TNG is anti-government and thus he just closes his gap!

    Thanks for your suggestion. We recognise that TNG is not a navigation-friendly website at this juncture, and we take your point about stories being pushed off the landing too quickly because of the MP Watch stories. We are in the process of addressing this issue through a website revamp but it’s going to take us at least two months.

    In the meantime, the reason why we publish the non-responses, at the risk of pushing off other stories that deserve reader attention, is so that we can hold each and every MP accountable. Between the issue of accountability and the issue of navigation, accountability trumps. And as journalists, we do think that a non-response from an MP is as critical a story as the other stories which are attention deserving.

    Thanks for bearing with us while we make the site more user friendly.

    I would like to suggest probably TNG can have a remark on the Full MP list to indicate whether the relevant MP had replied or not.
