Conservative 'Big Society' Aide Turns On Cameron Over Children's 'Appalling Experience'

Thorpe Groyney

Surely it's plain to see?
Blimey. Phillip Blond, who David Cameron described as an 'intellectual soulmate' has said that government policy of 'Big Society' has actually made children's lives worse.

Blond set up the ResPublica research group and thinktank for Cameron, and they issued their findings in "Children And The Big Society." It says that the project is letting children down with the closure of parks, selling of playing areas to property developers, and the end of community and play schemes.

Blond himself has said "Our poor record on child welfare obscures the dark reality – the appalling experience that some children endure on a daily basis."

Good grief, if that's what one of your trusted advisors is saying publicly .....
