Big Society - BS

Cameron's 'Big Society' in crisis - Scotsman.com News

SENIOR government figures are planning a relaunch of David Cameron's Big Society vision amid concerns that the project is in crisis, Scotland on Sunday has learned.
A Conservative source said: "Blond and Hilton and other senior government figures are concerned that the Big Society Network has no message. It's just invisible and it appears to be doing nothing."
Whitehall sources said Cameron's advisers are looking at a relaunch. One said: "It won't be branded as a relaunch because that would be an admission of failure, but it cannot be allowed to fail because it was central to Cameron's manifesto."

Has anyone any idea what Cameron's fatuous idea is meant to be all about?
Anyone?

This is easy. The plan is like all big government plans: To tax the people more, control the people more and to use the greater revenues to buy those people who can be bought. Isn't this what all government programs give us???

Well, it seems clear Blond and Hilton do:

"Blond and Hilton and other senior government figures are concerned that the Big Society Network has no message. It's just invisible and it appears to be doing nothing."

Pardon an antediluvian colonial in the Dominion of Canada but why does the outdated old term "British Empire" still seem to impart a message of cultural weight and significance that "Big Society" entirely lacks?

The Democracy Society has a .pdf that seems to me to try and work out something.

Cameron's talk to the CPS seems a long time ago now, when he still sounded like a Tory.
