Compliance and impartiality

I’ve visited and presented to a lot of UK local authorities now – I wouldn’t be surprised if I’ve visited over 100 in recent years. In each one, I’ve talked to them about how they can get their councillors to be active users of interactive tools. In each case, I’ve had to spend almost 80% of the time talking about legal compliance issues, and in most cases, this has been the reason that they have given to not continue working on the idea I’ve presented to them. And having actually worked with around 50 councils since 2002, the issue has hardly ever come up in practice in all of that time. It’s a massive irrelevant blockage.
