Interesting comment fromDavid Milliband, Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs. Thanks to Euan Semple for bringing it to my attention.
Milliband talks about the disperal of power, interactivity, collaboration, how politics can link with Web 2.0 and giving voice to cultural and collective collaborations.
In describing his blog he says
"This blog is my attempt to help bridge the gap - the growing and potentially dangerous gap - between politicians and the public."
Maybe he has a good enough grasp of web 2.0, which it sounds like he does, to help get politics back into the youth arena, indeed, into the public arena...
