My answer to What did the UK public think of or learn from Cameron's Big Society policy campaign?
Answer by Desmond Last:
Nothing, as far as I can see. Its architect, Hilton, took advantage of a void of new thinking and came up with a bit of everybody else’s ideas.
Big Society has no connection to the culture of the U.K , its history, the way in which the Monarchy, still to many people in the U.K acts for the people.
As an example read the letter copied below. This is the Government’s response to my protests, about the fact my new ideas for the world are totally ignored by the media and the Government. So concerned are they that I might use my keyboard to hit Cameron over the head they have decided I may be a threat to their safety and therefore must be assessed.
Hilton’s Big Society which Cameron so expensively embraced with Public Money was meant to be a bottom-up approach to society. Where the individual could make a difference. I do not see Hilton or Cameron embracing my new ideas – which neither of them have.
Nor do I see the people of the U.K wanting my and original ideas. They seem quite content to have their democracy trampled by a top down approach.
Therefore on the basis of the letter alone and the UK media censorship of me and the people acceptance of that – I have to say that nothing was learned.
