In 1987, Margaret Thatcher, the Conservative Prime Minister, declared in an interview that, “there is no such thing as society.” It is therefore fairly ironic that 13 years later, David Cameron, the new Conservative Prime Minister, has announced his plans to create a ‘Big Society’ in Britain. Throughout the general election coverage, Cameron had avoided mentioning any specifics on what was meant by his vision of a Big Society, but now Cameron and his new best friend Nick Clegg, have outlined what is in store for the country.
