    You have 3 choices... so yeah not number one.

    Also, sorry if I missed an issue close to your heart. Did try to think of a range.

    And sorry but you can't change your vote afterwards.

    I'm going to take a wild stab in the dark and guess 'education' is going to do well on here.

    So there'll be an obvious built in bias.

    How is Public Finances different from The Economy?

    Balancing the deficit compared to economic growth.

    One is the nation, the other government spending.

    Why can't I see housing in the list? Isn't that important anymore?

    It will be if people don't see immigration/Europe as a problem.

    Government policy on housing was inept and inadequate long before the issue of immigration became a talking point.

    I was allowed ten @Duke of York so those are the ten. Maybe ISIS should have been housing. Pretty sure folks know I'm more interested in ISIS than housing so the poll itself reflects my biases.

    Sure thing. Doesn't detract from my point.

    Another thought that comes to mind is electricity provision - we're hardly coping now - imagine another 15 million within 10 more years as is forecast.

    Head in sand time I guess:=)

    I'd have put employment too but I guess we could say that's covered by The Economy.

    Rally around people! click a box on a website which will make no real difference but alleviate my boredom temporarily!

    Too honest? I'd be a terrible salesman.

    My concern with public finances is not merely about balancing the deficit.

    lanokia Star commenter

    Feel free to expand on that @Flere-Imsaho

    Certainly an argument could be made for sound management of the finances or maybe a different way of spending the pie, dividing it up differently.
