The last couple of years has been a DDoS attack on my political activities, but with the government tearing up democratic controls all over, I think it’s time to rekindle the flames of openpolitics.org.uk (open source ideas for political participation) and somethingnew.org.uk (the party implementation thereof).

But, the few of us still involved in the projects can’t do it alone; we need help. If you believe that openness and collaboration can help us build a better politics and a better world, please get in touch to help us work out how to make it happen.

Our democratic systems need fundamental change in order to be resilient and effective in the 21st century. I have no answers or pretensions of expertise, but I have a great willingness to explore the possibilities. And a powerful naïveté.

And I can’t sit by and watch what’s going on without doing *something* to try to change things. Can you?

This is about so much more than the EU now. Boris has made it about the very soul of the UK, about what sort of country we want to be, about WHO WE ARE.

A social media community hosted in the UK; part of the Mastodon/ActivityPub federated social network, which allows you to follow users on other communities. It's a bit like Twitter but without a single company in control.

If you use this server, you are required to abide by our Code of Conduct. If you don't like it, there are plenty of other communities you can use.

If you're coming here from Twitter, there are some very useful services to help you find friends and automatically crosspost toots that you might like to set up once you're signed in.
