Funding

We’re establishing the Rational Parliament thanks to a £1,000 grant from the Good Thinking Society and a lot of people giving their time for free. This money won’t last, so we’re weighing up other options to keep the debates flowing. These might include:

    • Fixed-price ticketing—this is entertainment, after all

    • Pay-what-you-can tickets or a progressive tax—every parliament must be funded by those to whom it is accountable

    • Donations

    • Sponsorship

    • Grants from trusts or foundations

    • Crowd-sourcing funds for each debate using Kickstarter

    • Asking an MP to come and claim the whole thing on expenses

If you have any views on these funding proposals, or ideas of your own, please contact us.

Next sitting: coming soon
