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 happened in Frome, Somerset where after years of missed opportunities, a group of local residents took complete control of their town council, getting elected to all 17 seats, 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.
