Joseph Rowntree impress

14 Apr 2010 by Karl Hallam

The Joseph Rowntree Foundation Place Strategy group that we presented our work on Total Place to were an impressive bunch. They managed the trick of analysing a new initiative in an open and informed way that highlighted a whole new bunch of questions that have not come up before.

The one that stuck out for me was the workforce issue. The pilots can be excused failings in their involvement of all manner of groups, due to the short timescales. However, as the Total Place approach evolves, those places who do not fully incorporate the workforce in all apects of the process will struggle to make a difference.

There was also a very pragmatic understanding of the need to talk the cost-cutting/efficiency language of Total Place even if it is frustrating for some that caring about the lives of the most excluded has only risen up the agenda becuase the way it is done currently is so inefficient.

The involvement of organisations like JRF in Total Place could play a big part in it really being a big deal in terms of improving lives, rather than a 'nice' way of cutting public spending.

Ed Cox of ippr North also had some useful things to say and flagged up their Total Neighbourhood project and somone also provided us with a good contact for our museums project too.

Sorry, I didn't intend to imply that Chemtrails aren't real, only to query what Andrew meant. I've alywas referred to the residue left by airplanes as "Jet Trails", so I had to look up his terminology--which is where Wikipedia came up. I tend to use Wikipedia (and other default Google results) as a dictionary rather than an authority. So, I wasn't trying to back up (or even make, for that matter) a point. :-)I'd like to apologize for using "Conspiracy Theory", too. Obviously, (since I haven't heard about it before), Chemtrails would be the result of a "conspiracy." And since I had little or no hard evidence for or against it, I would call it a "theory." Actually, by the scientific definitions, it would be a "conspiracy hypothesis", because I didn't have any research yet.However, I do recognize that there are negative connotations that accompany the phrase "conspiracy theory", but I didn't think before I used the phrase. Also, I inadvertently called Andrew a "conspiracy theorist" which also is less than civil. I honestly had no malicious intent! So Andrew, I'm sorry!On the actual issue of Chemtrails, I don't have enough resources (Google turns up mostly panicked opinion writers with few facts) to address the problem. There's just too many questionable stories to analyze them all!May God protect you and your family from whatever threatens.

Dear Aangirfan, I had similar<a href="http://catdsmvwx.com"> fegeinls</a> about Davis, and was heartened that someone had apparently, broken ranks and was trying to raise awareness of possibly the most serious threat to our way of life...well...ever.Unfortunately however, it seems as though this is not the case.While it's true that some of the notions Icke has put his weight behind, have certainly been hard for many to swallow, this shouldn't detract from other more 'this-dimension' information that has become more widely known through him.In respect of David Davis, I'm talking specifically about his connection to Big Brother itself:He has been strongly supported by Ed Vaizey MP, Michael Gove MP and Colonel Tim Collins, who are all original signatories to the Statement of Principles of the Henry Jackson Society, a Neoconservative, 'think tank', set up in Britain in 2005 and named after the US senator, Henry 'Scoop' Jackson, one of the icons of the Neocon movement in the United States that has controlled the Bush administration since it came to power and orchestrated the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq and the war on terror in general. International patrons of the Henry Jackson Society include Richard Perle, Douglas Feith, William Kristol, Robert Kagan and former CIA director, James Woolsey, all of whom were in the forefront of the instigation of the war on terror through their Neocon 'think tank', the Project for the New American Century, whose key members include Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and Paul Wolfowitz. Indeed, Kristol and Kagan were co-founders of the Project for the New American Century. The Henry Jackson Society is Britain's version of the same Project for the New American Century. Another of the original signatories to the Henry Jackson Society is Sir Richard Dearlove who was head of MI6 at the time of the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq and the launch of the war on terror. Davis himself has been paid to speak by the American Enterprise Institute, the sister organisation of the Project for the New American Century, and the Neocon 'think tank', the Hudson Institute.He also invited Patrick Mercer MP to support his by-election campaign, yet Mercer has connections to private security firms and companies that produce and sell the very Big Brother surveillance and control technology that Davis is complaining about.And let's not forget that Davis is in favour of capital punishment and voted for the invasion of Iraq. Id prefer to think that Davis is making a stand for us and our liberties. Unfortunately, the closer one looks the less likely this seems.HighestPentosPS I enjoy your blog greatly - keep up the good work
