The OpenPolitics Manifesto

The current political parties in the UK are not serving the public interest. There is not enough choice, little informed debate, and no challenge to the prevailing narrative. Those of us who believe in, and are working towards, a better future have nobody to represent us.

This is an experiment in collaboratively creating a political movement.

We believe that a better kind of government is possible; one based on openness, transparency, evidence, and citizen engagement. We believe that it is time for those of us who have a stake in the future to stand up, and change the system from the inside.

The next UK general election is in 2015. We aim to field candidates in that election, and a platform for them to stand on.

You can start reading the manifesto by looking at manifesto.md.

The Manifesto

We are writing a manifesto, but we need to build it together. It's easy to contribute.

A good way to start might be with some fundamentals. What are our basic tenets?

Nice one. I've changed the main branch to gh-pages now so it should spring into HTMLified life.
