This is the Skeptical Voter Wiki site, which we hope will become a useful resource for tracking MPs and candidates 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.
Julian Huppert is the Liberal Democrat MP for Cambridge. He previously worked as a research scientist looking at the structures of DNA. In Parliament he has campaigned for evidence-based policy and is a member of the Home Affairs Select Committee. Responding to the 2010 Skeptical Voter Questionnaire he stated that there was "not a jot of evidence" for homeopathy.
