Britain today has a dysfunctional political system. Many politicians are making decisions to meet their own needs or those of their Party, not the needs of the people they serve.

This guide is based on what is happening in Frome, Somerset where after years of missed opportunities, a group of local residents took control of their town council and set about making politics relevant, effective and fun.

Flatpack Democracy is both the story of what happened and an instruction manual for taking political power at a local level, then using it to enable people to have a greater say in the decisions that affect their lives.

Follow the thoughts of author Peter Macfadyen in his Flatpack blog. An interesting report by Peter appeared in the Transition News and IiF – gives you flavour of what it is all about.
