As you will have gathered from reading STEP 10 in Part 1, your Community Meeting will be most effective in the decisions that it makes, by ensuring that the terms for Selecting Candidates and then Endorsing them is done right.
EVERYONE in your Community has something to give in terms of experience or anything else they can share. Everyone’s views are important and attending Community Meetings is the way that you can truly make your Vote count.
Officially NONE OF THE ABOVE has been written as a ‘How to’ guide for engaging every member of your local Community properly to then ensure that they are all legitimately represented by their Public Representatives in every possible way.
Officially NONE OF THE ABOVE was never intended to focus on the Why, What, How and When approach to Politics.
Therefore, Officially NONE OF THE ABOVE is not about the formulation of Public Policy and how we go about getting that right.
If you have read Officially NONE OF THE ABOVE and want to think more deeply about Politics, why it works as it does today, what we need to think about doing Politics differently, how we can go about doing Public Policy differently and when we will need to do all those things differently, I have written a series of seven other e-books and guides that cover all of these areas and more, too.
All Titles are all available as books for Kindle on Amazon:
My first book focusing on what’s really going wrong with public policy and why, Levelling Level goes into detail about the realities of everything in the Public sphere today, what is really happening, why People are behaving the way that they do, what is likely to happen without us taking the opportunity to drive our own change, and what we are likely to have to think about if we do.
The People First Economy and The Basic Living Standard
Building on key parts of Levelling Level, The People First Economy and the Basic Living Standard looks at the foundations of real change in the way that our economic system works now, so that it can actually work for us all.
You can find The People First Economy and The Basic Living Standard on Amazon HERE.
From Here to There Through Now
Continuing on the realities of The Great Reset, Agenda 2030 and being part of a Community effort to ‘Take back control’, From Here to There Through Now focuses on some of the more difficult topics that we will have to face, along with some of the practical ideas and solutions that we will have to embrace if The System as we know it should collapse before we are able to change it from within.

The Way of Awakened Politics for Good Government
Looking at how we all make decisions, The Way of Awakened Politics for Good Government focuses on the process of understanding and awareness that will be essential within all parts of the political, governance and public services systems, IF we are to run them in the best interests of everyone, rather than how they are run now.

A Community Route
A Community Route uncovers the obstacles and blocks that stand in the way of so many of us working together universally when we are already in groups or echo chambers and fail to appreciate that the key to the door of what all outsider groups have in common is the recognition of the need for change.
Whereas Officially NONE OF THE ABOVE addresses the need for change by working with the existing dysfunctional British Political System, The Grassroots Manifesto takes a very different approach and focuses on how we can build a much more effective system of democracy by completely rejecting the exiting Top-Down model of Elections and Governance, bringing as much power back to our Communities as practically possible, so that all decisions are made from the Grassroots-Up.

How to Get Elected
My Book ‘How to Get Elected’ is the ‘How to’ Guide that I mentioned at the end of STEP 10.
How to Get Elected will be an invaluable guide to anyone who wants to understand how Elections work and what steps you will need to take as a Candidate, and of course how we can all support Candidates who have already been Endorsed by Community Meetings.
If you’ve reached this point of the book; still consider yourself to be NONE OF THE ABOVE, but are also thinking “nah, this isn’t for me” – or similar, perhaps you should ask yourself “What else are we actually going to do?”
People and the Community itself is where all the real power of any true democracy lies.
Remove the filters that the current workings of this world inflict upon people, and then and only then, can you experience what will happen when all people, together, are given a real choice and have the responsibility of choosing anyone and everyone who becomes a public representative and then leads.
Someone else’s choice is no choice at all. No matter how many choices or how different those choices might seem.
I trust you and I trust everyone else, whoever you and whoever they are, with the responsibility of making the choice of all Our Public Representatives, knowing it will be of benefit to me, so long as no other agendas or motives are allowed to interfere or influence the decision-making process at any point along the way.
The PROCESS, METHOD and AIM that Officially NONE OF THE ABOVE has proposed to you within the pages of this Book may not be perfect and certainly cannot provide any guarantees.
However, this Book does present the key mechanics and principles of how real and meaningful change can become achievable for us all, once the battle for true freedom and our right to democracy has been won.
There is no alternative to embracing people power, If we genuinely want to experience positive and beneficial change.
Anything less will inevitably lead many more of the experiences that are increasingly challenging, that confuse us, because we do not understand they to be our fault.
Without us playing our part in claiming our power back, we will remain on a pathway of inevitable and negative change that will happen to us all, nonetheless.
Officially NONE OF THE ABOVE is going to annoy some people. Perhaps many people. You may be one of them.
However, if you are annoyed, the chances are that you are a lot closer to being able to adapt to a system that will work for you and for everyone, than those others who are not.
Those who ignore or ridicule work like this, are not in any way open to the reality that we, that humanity now faces. It is best to leave them to wake up, in their own time, alone.
The difference between successful change of the kind that we need is as simple as the difference in what we believe, because we have experienced it in our past already, and what we believe in for our future, because we have faith that it can and will be done.
You don’t need to be able to see how the outcome of following the principles and methodology of this Book will work. But it will work out, if you believe and have faith that it can.
Regrettably, presenting an alternative to what we have already got in Politics wouldn’t be complete with at least touching on the reasons why the Politicians that we have and The System that brings them to the ballot paper isn’t working for any of us.
Strange as it may seem, because of how bad things have become in Politics, telling the truth or being realistic about what is happening will always be treated as or considered to be negative by some.
Objectively and in reality, being negative and being realistic are two very different things.
Whilst it makes it sound like we are engaged in a war (which some People genuinely now believe that we are), we really do need to know and understand our enemy, before we can create or implement the methods and practices that mean we will ultimately win.
However, the reality is that in the majority of cases, the Politicians and People who have created the problems we have and who will continue to create them, IF we do not replace them with People who have the integrity and purpose to represent us, are not bad or evil People.
They are simply lacking awareness. They are selfish. They are without moral principles. They have a very restricted or self-serving view of what humanity is and the difference between wrong and right.
If many of them were able to see life in a different way, they could, in time, become just like any friends we have.
There is nothing wrong with them, except for how they behave and what they fundamentally believe.
