Tim Draper, another Silicon Valley rich know-it-all, is plotting new proposals to “make California a great government again.”
After spending nearly $5.3 million on the Six Californias effort, Draper said he’s been polling, meeting with analysts, interest groups and subject-matter experts, and studying various geographical reconfigurations and policy reforms to create a California 2.0. Whatever that’s supposed to mean.
To heighten the suspense, Draper said his team is expecting some assistance from “the Brits.” He’s heard from Nigel Farage, the British politician who led the UK Independence Party and masterminded Brexit.
Draper remains uncommitted on the separate Calexit proposal that would have the Golden State secede from the United States. A statewide Berkeley IGS Poll found it is opposed by nearly 70 percent of voters.“I don’t know how I’ll vote for that, but I am not actively supporting it,” he said. “Whether California is a part of the United States or outside the United States, we have got to make our government work in California.”
