Serious Stuff

Liked this. If you don’t have the time or inclination to read the full post, this abstract sums up why #thebigsociety has run into the sand:-
“…If I was planning to start a national network of people just doing good stuff, the unequivocal starting point would have to be that it wasn’t directly associated with one of the most controversial policy ideas of the government of the day.

Whichever party happens to be in power, many of the most passionate advocates of positive social action are people who don’t support that government and, while most will be happy to be involved in government funded activity, very few will be keen to be associated with a project whose success might reasonably be seen as a direct endorsement of that government’s ideological position.”
