Cameron's Big Society has a Common Purpose

From the today's Mirror:
"Thousands of pounds of taxpayers’ cash have been spent by ministers to explain David ­Cameron’s Big Society to civil servants..........Documents obtained by the Sunday Mirror show three Whitehall departments hired an organisation to “translate” the Big Society to officials. They ­attended brainstorming sessions and team-building exercises in a “collaboration ­laboratory” run by Common Purpose."
In this post I wrote:
"Nourishing obscurity posts (and do please follow the links) on Common Purpose whose members have infiltrated large sections of our public services, charities and local government."
borne out by the Events & Campaigns page of Common Purpose's own website.

"Translate" the Big Society in a "collaboration laboratory"? Just what the hell is going on here? What exactly was discussed? What exactly is Common Purpose and why the need for secrecy if there is nothing subversive in its organisation, theories and practises?

And we have "transparency" in how we are governed?

I always thought Cameron's intent was collaboration - now it has been officially confirmed.

Where can I see training course material.

Seerf: You won't - that is part of the secrecy to which I referred!

Serf said...

Hmmm. There is no one at all leaking stuff? and no chance of one of ours infiltrating?

I can see from their material that they subscribe to the cult of criminality - creeping and scheming to gain leverage and relying on projecting their constructs so that their qualifications in them have meaning.

I will have to do some more reading.

Serf: They operate under chatham house rules and their secrecy/security is tighter than a duck's..............

People believe they are living in a democracy, but they are living in a totalitarian state that controls the political parties, the media and all branches of government and big business. The rest of us are being prepared for Agenda 21. Details at the end of this blog post.

T: Which is what in effect I have been saying for yonks! And yes, I know of Agenda 21.
