About

The purpose of this application is to retrieve news articles about selected Politicians. As some publications are more biased in some manner, this application extracts links from a range of sources I hope to achieve a balance. 

Along side the range of articles is the the voting record of the MP. This will help indicate whether what has been written is fair and accurate.
