Simpol common misconceptions #3

Welcome back to the occasional series setting straight the common errors people make with regard to Simpol

So then…

The Simpol agenda is set by the Simpol organisation

This is a nice quick one to correct but has come up surprisingly often of late.

The decidedly non complex answer to this – as regular readers and those familiar with Simpol will already know – is that the Simpol agenda is set by the Simpol supporters. That is the ordinary citizens and voters.

We are working with other NGOs to help formulate policy but, since they are made up of their supporters, it amounts to the same thing anyway.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Simpol is not about us, it’s about YOU.
