Today a report is being launched by Orange called the Future of Politics. The report includes contributions from a number of MPs and others including, Iain Dale, Tom Watson and Douglas Carswell. I'm not going to do a lengthy post on it because I've actually written a piece on the report for the next issue of Total Politics which I will post when it is published.
In essence the report proposes some ideas which are very workable in terms of using technology. The underlying conclusion is that the use of collaborative tools has the potential to make politics more engaging with a larger and wider audience.
Personally speaking I think the potential is most certainly there for this. I am however slightly sceptical of about whether it will increase engagement or whether it will just give those of us already engaged better means to talk amongst ourselves.
