Trying something different with election coverage this year.

The idea is to publish a feature on a specific election issue (this one is "jobs") and try to keep the discussion alive for a few days. The feedback you see at the link below has been gathered today from Twitter, Facebook and the bottom of the story itself. (The main feature is in the central position.)

We'll publish a selection of this feedback in tomorrow's print edition, then on the third day we focus on politicians' responses to our users' comments.

We'll be exploring eight issues in total -- two per week for duration the four-week campaign.
