Re-Blog: We need a Big Society – but not that one.

When it appears things we value as foundations of our quality of life like libraries,woodlands and the chance of higher education are being put in jeopardy by an idea that is supposed to rewrite the social contract in our favour as citizens, don’t be surprised if people rebel against it

 

Nice post about the UK government using their mouth to talk about strengthening society whilst using their hands to knock away its foundations. Highlights why volunteers need to be thinking about where, when and why they are being called to volunteer in Dave’s Big Society.
