The POWER inquiry seems to be ramping up now. If you haven't come across it, POWER is the Joseph Rowntree funded investigation into why political participation is in such a bad state and what to do about it.
I gave evidence on the future of political parties a few weeks back and realised I go on a bit when they sent me back the transcript and it was 6000 words. You can judge for yourself whether there were any nuggets because it's all going to be published on the site later this year.
Next thing they're up to is getting us all to have dinner with one another to talk about democracy. More details on their site.
