Chaos and civil disorder could well lead to an outcome that is far worse than what we are experiencing already. It could easily deliver a way of living that it is safe to say that none of us could ever want.
The safest and most effective way to bring about and embrace effective change will be to play with and respect the rules of the game we are already playing, and that we will be playing, at that precise moment in time.
Whilst a collapse of civilised society or order would necessitate playing that game in a very different way, we must respect the way that democratic change can be delivered today.
We must and be fully committed to working with the system that we have until the very moment that it has become clear that the aim of change cannot be delivered by continuing to do so.
It may feel like it, but we are a long way from reaching that point, yet.
People will not vote for anyone, just because they decide to craft a message and turn up.
People want representation from bottom to top that they can trust.
People will only trust all of us together as a viable political alternative when they know that they are important, and they feel that they are valued and involved.
Engage the people. Take the Councils. Then take Parliament. Then and only then seek to change the rules to prioritise localism and community – Once you have legitimately taken power away from those who still believe it is their destiny to possess and to always be at the top – and will always do what they can to preserve it.
