We've had another Member takeover on the blog today - this time we've got David telling us why it's more important than ever for people to take action.

Although David's not a member of a political party he has long been active in the political sphere.

He also runs a Dance and Movement Practice for expression and communication which he says accords with the aims of More United: to bring people together and heal divisions. Here are his reflections on why apathy and fear are our worst enemies.
