What has digital technology got to do with politics?
We are not yet ready, intellectually, philosophically or morally, to face the advances of science and technology. It will transform how we live together with political consequences. Digital technology affects usall, not just as consumers but as citizens, transforming our public services and changing the very way we live together. The big question is to what extent will society be impacted by digital systems, and what is the role of Parliament in controlling it?
Every Conservative MP and activist is ready, intellectually, philosophically and morally to face the full spectrum impact of digital technology. Politicians at every level can forecast what technology can do, so they can decide what it should do.
1. Ratchet the digital agenda up the political ladder
2. Build a pipeline of technologists at all levels of politics
3. Create a home for digitally minded activists
