Douglas Carswell blogs (about tonight’s Cameron speech)

“The first step is to redistribute power and control from the central state and its agencies to individuals and local communities. …. A necessary counterpart to decentralisation is greater transparency. That’s because information is power, so by giving people more information we give them more power… The third element of the power shift we want to see is accountability … We will require the people and organisations acting for the state to be directly accountable to the people they are supposed to serve.”

– David Cameron speaking tonight at the Hugo Young Lecture

I bought “The Plan” before Hannan became an internet meme, or before Carswell found synergy with Cameron.

Maybe DC’s visit to Windsor Fire Station invigorated ?!
