Together we can and we will re-make democracy. This country’s greatest asset is its people, it’s not the bankers, it’s not the politicians or the obscenely wealthy or the heads of the massive corporates – it’s the people, it’s us and together we can and we will make things change for the better for everyone. Love always Claire xx
