TALK SHOP - let's talk, let's decide


Imagine a country that draws on the good sense of ordinary people like you and me when making decisions and passing new laws.

TALKSHOP is a new way of discussing and reaching agreement about the issues that really matter to us all - local, national, international. Tricky questions like what should we do about health and social care, or how we should improve British democracy. TALKSHOP is about making sure that everyone has a voice in the matters that concern them - so that democracy works for everyone.
