Job offer

There's a very interesting job offered at W4MP:

A new group called 'Direct Democracy' is being launched to research and campaign for better democratic institutions and more accountability in Britain. It will be independent of any political party or group and will be financed by voluntary donations.

The ideas driving the campaign have been extensively written about in The Plan: Twelve months to renew Britain (Carswell & Hannan, 2008) and Total Recall: how direct democracy can improve Britain (Civitas, 2008). It is currently being established under the leadership of Douglas Carswell and Daniel Hannan, and drawing on the research expertise of Civitas and the campaigning expertise of the TaxPayers' Alliance.

We are seeking a Director to take overall responsibility for running Direct Democracy, reporting on a weekly basis to a small executive committee.

I'm almost tempted to apply myself!

Go for it!

Just apply for a laugh, and let us know what happens at the interview.

If you GET the job, you can always tell 'em to fuck off, you were only joking.

...or just use it to make sure some sense gets spread about the country. I'm sure the small group of directors wont't actually notice what's going on until it's far too late to change direction.

They have to be sure that all the legal phrases are in something you sign, and probably will ask you to sign something that says you will not divulge proprietary (their) information to another firm or other people.
