Give me your first preference if you think:

  • Party policy debate has to engage more with online privacy and surveillance issues in a party where 4 months after conference passes a motion endorsing a digital bill of rights, the Data Retention and Investigatory Powers Act can pass into law

  • Its time conference had debates about the Big Data, Open Source, Free licensing, the digital economy or technology strategy as central to its social and economic policies - not boxed away as ‘that techy stuff’

  • If you share my belief that new technologies and digital participation are going to be crucial to delivering social justice and liberal values

  • If you think we need to invest more in researching and shaping how liberal values can be enshrined or undermined by how we approach the increasingly central role of technology in our political and public life
