Steve Hilton, David Cameron's former director of strategy, has launched a new crowdfunding scheme in the UK to help people decide how to vote. 'Crowdpac' aims to break the two-party model of Britain's traditional political system by making it easier for indepedent candidates to run for office, both locally and nationally.
