TalkPolitics is creating Change

TalkPolitics is the award-winning, indepedent campaign for freer debate, more accessible democracy, and more effective representation.

Politics is a bit of a taboo topic. There is a common perception from a growing number of the electorate that “there’s too much politics going on at the moment”. As political engagement becomes as important as ever, more people seem to be turned off by political debate – and more willing to lock themselves in echo-chambers.
Undoubtedly, we all have strong opinions when it comes to issues. However, there is still a disconnect between caring about issues and engaging in conventional forms of politics. So many people see Party Politics as something that “isn’t for them”; they can’t be bothered with the camaraderie and what they see as constant lies from politicians. They find it difficult talking about politics with friends and family for fear of causing arguments if they have different views. They find issues like Brexit incredibly complex and yet feel that explanations can be unhelpful and often patronising.
At TalkPolitics, we envisage a different democracy, one that is more accessible. A democracy where people feel that politics is for them. A democracy where issues are properly explained, in a language that is neither patronising nor intimidating. A less toxic democracy where people feel free to speak their mind on issues – and free speech is a real, genuine liberty, and not a pretty buzzword.
We envisage a democracy within which young people are effectively taught about politics, to equip them with the intellectual tools required for a lifetime of political debate. These tools will empower them to shape their own future and not have it determined by others.
There is a crisis of confidence in politics generally but especially in its practitioners. At TalkPolitics, we envisage a democracy in which politicians are trusted by the people. Clearly, politicians will never please everyone, but we strive for a democracy with a much healthier relationship between politicians and the electorate.
