Tom, I don't know you but I admire mySociety and your work there greatly. I think most people are actually capable of distinguishing between professional and personal roles. I actually think it is good for our country when people become involved in the political process and I see no reason why this should affect your work one iota. I have worked in "politically restricted" roles in local government. In such roles people are forbidden from political activity. This was an infringement of my liberty but it was acceptable and necessary to prevent bullying and coercion within local government (the reason it was introduced). We're not going to advance the political process very far unless we agree that good people can, in fact, become politically engaged without being fatally corrupted.
