I would like to call on the substantial collective wisdom of CoffeeHousers. What changes do we need to make to Britain's democracy? Once, this would have been a closed debate - with Gordon Brown setting up a "national" committee then telling us what we think. Now, we can gatecrash - and this is what The Spectator proposes to do. We're teaming up wth PoliticsHome to start what should be a massive online consultation to take the debate outside of the Village. In my political column today I ask for suggestions, from select committee membership to having a directly-elected PM. To kick of the debate, click here (or click on one of the "Democratic Reform Survey" buttons on the right-hand side of any Coffee House page) and let's have your thoughts. This is just too important to leave to Brown and his committees.
