The latest "We are listening" myth 

An exercise in Public Relations.

"We are listening" myth

It is always the case that these "survey" invitations from any of the parties never provide a facility for comments or adding the respondent questions or opinions. Always loaded questions with standard "safe" response options. The political parties have little if any interest in the views of ordinary people. They produce this type of meaningless survey as an act of Public relations designed to promote the "We are listening" myth. If they really wanted an opinion there are other, more effective and efficient, ways of seeking responses.
