'A big society needs big citizens'


Two think tanks are publishing pamphlets arguing that David Cameron would do well to revive the ideas behind the Big Society.

Professor Anthony Seldon, master of Wellington College, who wrote a pamphlet for Policy Exchange, believes the Big Society concept should be resurrected with "more substance" and with a more "thoughtful" government and more "responsible" and "responsive" citizenry.

Chief executive of the RSA Matthew Taylor, who wrote their pamphlet, says the Big Society "needs big citizens", with people being more autonomous and responsible.
