Building local parties in return for open selections of candidates

My collaborator on PICamp, Paul Evans, has launched a site called this morning with help from the Spectator’s Martin Bright and the Liberal Conspiracy site.

I think that the idea will have a good deal more traction in England, Scotland and Wales than it will here (and the site doesn’t currently have figures on it for the Northern Ireland parties), though I’d be happy to be corrected on this.

Either way, it illustrates the way that political campaigning may change – that disruptive gamechanging ideas are easy to set up and try out – and sometimes, they can make a difference.
