Roger Lindley - Publisher-EditorEditorial Comment

Summer is over but plenty of hot air as autumn approaches

Why do people laugh when anyone says “Summer is over”. Could it be the fact that for most of us, it never happened apart from the odd teaser to show what we were missing?

Atmospheric temperatures may be dropping and it wont be long before we have our first frost, but as an adjunct to autumn, there is a profusion of hot air emerging from the various political party conventions that are taking place. These use to be highly entertaining but today they are too stage managed and contrived as political leaders and ‘wannabe’ politicians swap punches whereas it use to be different factions within a party exchanging blows. Big on promises . . but never an apology for messing up the economy.

The Green party, as always, promised the earth and a utopian ideal knowing that there is little chance of them getting elected so it sounds good. UKIP tried to win friends and influence people by agreeing to talk with other possible allies but only on their terms. That’s a very democratic way of negotiating.

As I wrap up this issue the Labour party is making all sorts of profound statements about building thousand of houses paid for by selling off mobile phone frequencies. Don’t they realize that you can build as many homes as you like but people cannot obtain a mortgage, even though they are well able to afford it. Councils are strapped and cannot afford to keep offering subsidized housings the community at a level to ensure that the tenants can still enjoy their holidays abroad.

There’s a skill shortage so how about training the young people on social welfare in house building skills while they build their own ‘flat’ - a sort of pay as you go. Not only would they have somewhere to live which you can be sure they would look after (they built it), but would also give them a skill to get work plus a realization that in today’s world you get very little for free and work calls for a disciplined life.

They could built sports facilities (no vandalism) and get involved in other works. A win-win situation. . . .if you can get them to work.

Plantworx 2013 - Lighthouse Club

Going to Plantworx 2013? You should, if only to see how different it is from SED (if any). The team has done a good job in getting exhibitors on board. Now they have to convince sceptics that it is a show worth visiting.

If you are going, would you be interested in participating in a special Lighthouse Club Dinner - a fun filled evening to raise money for a very worthwhile charity to help those injured and bereaved as a result of an accident in the construction industry? The planned date is Tuesday May 14th at a venue close to where Plantworx will be taking place. So now you have two good reasons to visit Stoneleigh Park.

If you are planning to visit Plantworx and would like to be kept informed about the Lighthouse Club dinner and other events click here and I will ensure you are on the appropriate mailing lists.
