Linked Data and the Leaders’ Debate – My Challenge

Over the last few weeks, there has a been a smattering of challenges to the Linked Data community baiting them to demonstrate some of the utility of the Linked Data approach (e.g. A Challenge To Linked Data Developers (followed up in Response To My Linked Data Challenge) and Linked Data: my challenge, with some other possibilities here: 10 Ideas For Web of Data Apps).

So here’s my challenge, inspired by the #leadersdebate last night:

.

That is: each party should be required to tweet a link to #datagovuk sparql query to justify every “factual” claim they make.

For example – can someone write me a Linked Data query to show how much is spent by the government on UK education quangoes?

PS doing something similar for any claims made in the manifestos should also count…
