Portillo sets outs on a journey to find how we could all be given more of a say on the issues which matter to us - from directly elected mayors, to enabling parents to set up their own schools, to residents taking over the village shop, to electing our own police chiefs. Is it really going to happen this time, and are we ready for it if it does?
