Mastering the Web Master

The web master has special powers that may be used to manipulate the content and presentation of the ID site. It is therefore sensible for their actions to be monitored by a Parliamentary Committee with suitable powers. The manipulation of the system in order to effect a vote is a serious issue and should carry a criminal charge.

Accurate accountability may be facilitated by automatic logging of changes to the ID site which could be traced to individual Web Masters using their personal log in name and password. The log in details may also limit individuals access to some areas of the system.

A complaints procedure where any member of the public can contact the Parliamentary Committee directly would provide a separate level of monitoring.
