An idle thought

Open candidate selections, a la Totnes Tories, seem to be a pretty popular way of opening politics up.

Open candidate selections are quite expensive for local parties to run.

People are very sceptical about state funding for political parties, because they don’t like the closed political class and they don’t want their money spent on a load of yah-boo-sucks billboard ads.

I wonder whether there might be some way of reconciling these facts.
