Cameron: I will reduce PM's power

"We're living in an age where technology can put information that was previously held by a few into the hands of almost every one. So the argument that has applied for well over a century — that in every area of life we need people at the centre to make sense of the world for us and make decisions on our behalf — simply falls down. In its place rises up a vision of real people power. This is what we mean by the Post-Bureaucratic Age. The information revolution meets the progressive Conservative philosophy: sceptical about big state power; committed to social responsibility and non-state collective action. The effects of this redistribution of power will be felt throughout our politics, with people in control of the things that matter to them, a country where the political system is open and trustworthy, and power redistributed from the political elite to the man and woman in the street." —David Cameron MP, leader of the Conservative party and almost certainly the UK's next prime minister
