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?
