With School Stars we are going to see kids practising together in the corridors, forming bands, getting together in their lunch breaks, all of those things. I hope that by doing the brave things, and getting up on stage, more and more young people are going to be invested with self-belief, the belief that they can be someone, the belief that they can play a part and make a difference in our country.
Yes, this Big Society thing is big. Almost as big, in fact, as the laugh I had reading Armando Ianucci's piss take of it.
