BTC/124/2017 - Opinion...A wish list for unblinkered thinking. Horticulture Week (December 2017)
Generations of ordinary British people have been let down by weak, visionless leaders – politicians more engaged by the next election than our national best interest. We wallow daily in the debris of failure — struggling social services, our natural environment in tatters, a polluting transport system, and unforgivably depleted armed forces. All driven by a silo mentality that refuses to recognise or overcome an inability to understand the wider picture, choosing short-term gain at the expense of long-term success and prosperity.
