Knowledge is Power

We need to agree on a common pool of information, in order to have a sensible discussion about the future.
Without a common pool of information, there can be no meaningful Democracy.

There are many problems with our political system, and with our politicians.

A quick example might be that we are trying to achieve too many things with just one vote every 5 years -

  1. select a good local representative,
    and
  2. select a party which seems as though it could govern competently,
    and
  3. select a manifesto of what we want to happen.

Taking the Party out of Politics is a new podcast from Talk Together, exploring WHY the problems are problematic, and HOW things could be different.

Rather than concentrating on the problems, we need to focus on creating solutions.
We need to work together to use our electoral and political systems better.

Listen to Taking the Party out of Politics, and be ready to contribute your ideas about how things could be different.

No one is as clever as everyone, working and thinking together.
