As much as I hate putting any of my rapidly disappearing wealth into the pocket of a politico I decided to buy 'The Plan' written by Dan Hannan and Douglas Carswell. I justified this to myself with the rationale that should I meet Dan in person I would of spent the money I spent on his book on buying him a few beers for his eloquent delivery of what I think (in my very mildest of moments) to Gordon Browns face. For those few who have not seen it....three minutes of absolute pleasure Well I have read and digested what they have to say,namely that our system of democracy is in its death throws and we need a change,desperately. For those that dont know what the premise of the book is,it is a 12 month plan to turn our failed parlimentary system into a direct democracy system. To cut a long story short here is the man on his own blog. The Plan:telegraph As I said I have read the book and it has actually left me feeling that there is hope for us yet...its always darkest before the dawn,so the saying goes. So to prevent this post from becoming a blatant plug for the book,has anyone else read it? If so what do you think? And if not its a few quid from amazon and,especially in these bleakest of times,I cannot recommend it enough.
