David Cameron gave a fantastic speech today about our plan for a big society. Big people, small state is a philosophy which runs through my veins and is the core reason why I am a Conservative.


Plans for 5000 community organisers, the ambition to roll back the state and engage others in the delivery of community services will present a massive cultural change within many communities. It will result in the delivery of some person-to-person services which will be provided not as a duty and function of the state or as a means of earning profit, but as an act of kindness and humanity.


Kindness is a good place to start when re-building a fragmented and broken society.


I mused on this when stood in Roger’s bakery in Meppershall in my constituency.


In France, every village and town has its own bakery. It is a centre of the community where people converse and exchange information and news.

We just don’t have anything like the same in the UK; our towns and high streets are dominated by supermarkets and high street chains. Just another example of how our society has become fragmented and isolated.


Roger’s bread and cakes are to die for by the way and the hot cross buns taste like they did when I was a child. If you are reading this blog and live in Mid Beds but don’t know about Roger’s - you should do!
