"Open source, open standards and decentralised technology gives users control. Open source lets people build on top of what already exists. Open standards means a vibrant ecosystem and marketplace can thrive, competing through innovation that gives customers endless choice. Decentralisation lets people own their own service - the data they generate and, in doing so, returns them their privacy and leaves them free from data mining.
It removes the surveillance capitalism that has brought such turmoil and division to not just elections, but everyday life."
