first of all, i'm a yank. for my government class we're doing a project where we basically mimick the PM's questions for a whole class period. everyone was assigned a party (one person the prime minister). I'm in the conservative party. considering i know nothing about british politics, i figured i'd ask around...

my job is to come up with at least 5 questions for the prime minister concerning business and industry, economic policy, and defense and international policy. if anyone up to date on british politics could point me to some key issues (or maybe provide a question or two ) it would be greatly appreciated.

thanks!

Some key issues would be (in no particular order):

- John Reid's management of the Home Office (soon to be split into Justice and Security departments)
- updating Britain's nuclear arsenal
- the Northern Ireland peace process and upcoming elections
- Muslim integration and extremism (for example the chador, niqab and burqa)
- Tony Blair leaving and his replacement, Gordon Brown
- Britain's presence in Iraq and Afghanistan and support for the USA/Bush

The sky was deep black; Jesus still loved me. I started down the alley, wailing in a ragged bass.

I've been doing my own research (and even watched the replay of PM's questions this evening). I just figured I'd try and suppliment that with some information provided by actual brits.

I think Barto has hit the nail on the head. Environmental issues are also becoming more prominent, with all main UK parties attempting to portray themselves as the real environmentally friendly party. The conservatives under their current leadership of David Cameron have supported the current Labour government in some policies following a rebellion of more left-wing Labour MPs, which is rather interesting.

What are you doing to prevent the closure of the Battersea Arts Centre, one of the country's most important cultural institutions, threatened with immediate closure by the Conservative Party's decision to remove all of its funding in one go?

(This is a super hot topic right now. Perfect PMQT fodder.)
