On London Citizens

Please forgive us for posting a slightly mercurial blog, about an apparently arcane and tangential subject. This, from The Guardian:

"James Purnell, who announced he is standing down as an MP this morning, is to retrain as a community organiser. . . . Purnell and a member of his constituency party will spend next week relearning the tools of their trade at a five day community organising course run by the UK's largest community organisation, London Citizens."

The purpose of this blog is not to point to the politician (although this Purnell link is funny) but instead to flag up this organisation, which may turn out, in the fullness of time, to be one of the most interesting civil society organisations in Britain today. More on this, and on the tax justice angle, in due course.
