At £250,000 access to the Prime Minister is out of reach for most people, this kickstarter will democratise the process, slightly. Read more

About this project
Cash for access at £250,000, that's not how democracy should work!
We firmly believe that in this great country of ours the attention of politicians shouldn't be for those with all the money. Everybody in the UK has a right to make their voice heard, to be listened to and have access to politicians at all levels.
It is the British way that democracy should cost a lot less, cheaper democracy for all [as long as you have a credit card and Amazon.com, terms and conditions apply].
# How will it work?
There is a long standing tradition that impartial donations to the government while not directly influencing policy (obviously!) can mark you out as someone trustworthy who clearly understands business. Once your favourite political party (if you have a favourite, otherwise the one currently in power will probably do) has been made aware of your impeccable skills you may be asked to look over proposed Bills for any obvious mistakes and omissions.
Donations are normally made to the Tory Treasurer, unfortunately the current one has just recently left to spend more time with his family. When a new treasurer is found and the dust has settled I will make a donation for the full amount raised (the more we raise over the target the more time we get to spend with the PM) to sit with David Cameron for a full hour to put forward your stories, opinions and lobbying.
# We're all in this together
Because the minimum bookable hour is prohibitively expensive for the likes of you or I, generally being reserved for big business and well funded lobbying groups I have split the hour down into the following time slots...
- 1 x 5mins @ $10,000+
- 5 x 2mins @ $9,500
- 20 x 1min @ $5,500
- 30 x 30s @ $3,000
- 59 x 10s @ $100
...with the last 10 seconds saved for a joint message we can all share as a nation which you can sponsor for just $10, full details of each pledge level can be found to the right.
To preserve my voice I reserve the right to interspace the 10s slots among the others if most of them consists of continuous shouting.
That's right, with the new Conservative (and LibDem) government we finally have a way to cut through all that bureaucracy and red tape. By working together (nearly) all of us can cheaply directly access politics, with new crowdsourced government https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations
# US $ to GB £ conversion
Although the recently advertised amount for access to the Prime Minister was listed at £250,000, all values on this website are listed in US dollars. Please don't worry that there's going to be a shortfall, the UK government welcomes foreign currency, especially the US $. For donations and political lobbying we have a special Anglo-American agreement that values the US dollar on par, if not greater than our own UK sterling.
# Thank you
