Government launches six mutual arrangements in London

The UK coalition government has today announced six mutual arrangements which will be set up in and around London in the first of many forthcoming "Big Society" events. The idea is that individuals and parties from an array of different backgrounds will come together for the mutual benefit of everybody, allowing input from people who are often ignored.

This is the government's idea of sidestepping often expensive Quangos which have attracted significant public-sector investment and significant controversy in the past. The basic idea is that local authorities will be decentralised and more control passed to the general public who will have more of an input at various different stages. While the ideal the "Big Society" has attracted significant criticism from opposition parties it seems that David Cameron is intent on loosening the grip which the previous government tightened around the UK public.

David Cameron has made a major issue of the "Big Society" and if he can pull off this ambitious movement then potentially it could secure him some significant support at the next election. However, if this proves to be nothing but a red herring and a complete waste of time then David Cameron does risk attracting the wrath of the UK public!
