Political inertia to a flourishing society HOW?

Just had this einvite pdf to a platform for change event in a couple of weeks. Good question even if the natural response is “well, if I was going to start, I wouldn’t start from here.

Here being where a senior DUP MP’s off colour joke about the Irish Language in the Assembly (on which more later), and the deputy First Minister is selling his political partners in government (during talks) as a bunch of bigots.

Nevertheless, it remains good question. And one it struck me we could usefully convene a public conversation (aka a #DigitalLunch of our own around, with a motley crew of non party types who might have something useful to say on the matter.

In the meantime, give us a few of your own ‘starters for ten‘?
