BigSoc progress covered in The Times

covers it today!

Features a number of solid “bullish” quotes from me, as well as supporting quotes from others including the opposition.

“David Burbage, the Conservative leader of Windsor and Maidenhead Council, is feeling bullish.  Liverpool’s decision to pull out of the pilot project for the Big Society, David Cameron’s idea for reinvigorating local communities, was “a political gesture”, he says. “It’s a Labour council wanting to give a kicking to the coalition”. He expects no such change of heart in the Royal borough.  “People are starting to understand what the Big Society is all about,” he explains in his office, a poster of David Cameron beside his computer.”

What isn’t said here is that the ‘poster’ in question is a small A4 sheet with the famous “not airbrushed” WeCan’tGoOnLikeThis Cameron picture and a bespoke slogan… produced before we got involved in the Big Society programme.
