I love the idea of increasing political participation and people getting better awareness of what political parties are available and putting their MPs and other candidates to the test.
I personally advocate that political parties hold more open evenings and invite residents to taster sessions to allow them to get a good impression about a party.
Most party memberships are not time restricted and people can come and go as they like. It’s better to try parties and leave until one finds the best one, rather than join one and feel one is committed for life.
Only animals, children and (wife’s, husbands) are for life.
