This, the final episode of Open Thread Radio, is a timely discussion with Lord Ashdown, recorded at the House of Lords. Ashdown, the former leader of the Liberal Democrats, speaks to our Rachal Bradley about the contradiction between the instantly accessible, dynamic online world of the digital citizen, and the formal, centralised power structures of government. Ashdown advocates a much greater decentralisation of power through the creation of new, intermediary institutions that are much more in touch with technology and communication. Will the digital revolution lead to a political revolution? Listen to our half-hour conversation with one of Britain's most dynamic political leaders, and then continue the discussion below. For all of us at Open Thread, we've enjoyed bringing you this programme, and thank you for listening.
