Its Not Ideal, But It Is a Start
It is not ideal but the people behind No2ID are setting up Power 2010
It is chaired by Helena Kennedy and has funding from the Rowntree Trust, there were enough people attending the Convention on Modern Liberty who from the floor were passionately calling for a New Constitutional Settlement. For me where the Convention went badly wrong was inviting the warhorses from the Conservative/Labour and Social Democrats as the main speakers. This was before the Expenses scandal spoke, which just discredited them appearing in the first place.
We cannot allow the political classes to divide 61 million people into powerless ineffectual groupings.
I intend to try to swing the LPUK behind this movement, because the ballot box is being abused, I don't want to be represented by TV celebs. I want to emmasculate the political classes and reduce the State.
The Convention although flawed was packed with passionate people, I do not agree with some of the peoples views, but I want Radical Change, not more petty fogging tinkering at the edges.
