Labour Should Propose Credible Alternative To Cameron's Big Society,+Thu+22nd+Jul+2010&tmtid=33171-2856-6-1-1297

So David Cameron has relaunched his Big Society idea that appeared to flounder during the election campaign.

It will now be up to individuals to come together to run local services rather than Local Authorities or the State.

In my mind, it is simply a rehash of policies that were carried out during the Thatcher era of the 1980s - designed to undermine local government and de-centralise services. It didn't work then and it won't work now.

Whilst Labour have been very vocal in their opposition to Cameron's proposals, they need to be more proactive in coming up with alternatives to the Big Society.
