I've got a radical suggestion for you.
It occurred to me whilst I was scrolling through the bogroll of a Euro Election ballot paper the other day deciding which bunch of chancers to send off to expense account heaven in Brussels. I tried to be positive and non-cynical but couldn't find anyone to give me that "Obama Rush" of enthusiasm a voter needs to feel inspired and connected with the socio-political World of today.
And that was just it.
Standing in an under-used social hall with a pencil and paper confronted by dozens of names and parties I'd never heard of left me with the idea that many people have become detached from the free democratic system that our forefathers fought so hard to build up and protect. We live in an information rich age where a single civil servant can leave billions of names and details down the back of his train seat, yet most of us are information-poor when it comes to obtaining the knowledge we need to support democracy properly. "In the kingdom of the blind the one-eyed man is king" does appear to hold water as we have Mr Brown in charge.
So here's my idea, starting now.
There IS a party, a young organization of 22,000 highly talented individuals whose work we all deal with on a daily basis. They are highly profitable yet don't require subsidy or support, they don't have a "blame culture" but just get on with their job in a perfect "low flat hierarchy" with the admirable mission statement "don't do harm".
They are not afraid to experiment with new ideas which are nurtured until they can stand on their own feet and make a positive contribution to the community. They know about our daily lives in great detail and know where all the information in the World is kept.
So come on, let's give them our wholehearted support! They CAN rule the World!
