About Skeptical Voter [Edit]

This is the Skeptical Voter Wiki site, which we hope will become a useful resource for tracking UK politicians for their level of commitment to evidence-based policy-making.

Skeptical Voters believe that evidence should be at the centre of all public policy making. This site intends to identify which parliamentary candidates embrace the use of evidence as a means to inform their decisions and which prefer to obfuscate, ignore or suppress the evidence for political convenience.

Featured Politician[Edit]

Sarah Wollaston is the Conservative MP for Totnes. A former GP, she has criticised her own party on health issues including cigarette packaging and alcohol pricing – in each case using scientific evidence as the basis for her arguments. She has also campaigned for greater availability of pharmaceutical trial data.
