Green Economy in the East End
I wrote this brief paper about two years ago. With the current upsurge of enthusiasm in Hackney (but not in Tower Hamlets, devoted only to spin, fried chicken and influence trafficking) I'm putting it back into view. This is the second version, I hope is it's gradually becoming easier to read and more detailed.
We need to get as far as possible from being grant-funded-puppets into true sustainability (capital S perhaps, people tend to only think in terms of energy rather than thinking in terms of sustainable human activity including a refactored economy).
That's not a message that our (well they believe they are) lords and masters want to hear but it's the new post-Marxist historical inevitability. We'll all be wearing something like that as the waters rise to engulf us.
