Just on the train back from London after a great couple of days. The meeting at the Foundation was great and the Greenbelt partners meeting got me very excited about this years festival; the site plan is very different this year with what was main stage becoming a skatepark and headline acts performing on a new open-air stage. Nice to see Paul again to meet Jude (who has the fine job of producing Steve Lamaq's show on Radio 6) and to eat lots and lots of sushi and drink some Traidcraft wine.
It was also good to meet Phil Levermore, husband of Jude who sits on the GB board, and here about Ebico, a non-for-profit an ethical energy provider with a bias towards those on low incomes (well worth a look, eco-minded bloggers).
On a completely seperate note, I was well impressed by David Cameron's speech yesterday. "Hoodies are more defensive than offensive" seems quite a wise observation to me and leads me to like Mr Cameron even more than I did two days ago (a task which I didn't think was possible). The only problems with Cameron are the fools he is leading and the lack of trust I have for the Tory party as a whole. To give an example, Cameron may well talk about hoodie loving, but paradoxically last week to Conservative party voted against a £500,000 budget allocation to improve youth services.
If he led any other party (besides the BNP) Cameron would have my vote, but as it stands that's unlikely, instead I'm going to vote for... blimey who am I going to vote for???
