Democracy does work, if intelligent and directed. Like Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s Great Fish Fight. Born out of real outrage at fish discards, it raised half a million signatures, and has already begun to change European Law. So ‘a guilty secret, far out to sea,‘ has now become ‘a political hot potato’. I wonder if we should highlight our story to start the Great Book Fight! Of course Whittingstall had the benefit of already being a TV Celebrity chef, and being able to command Television access and coverage. Yet he has conducted the campaign against what he calls obvious ‘madness‘, with passion, intelligence and integrity. He does have the slightly fishy glint of madness in his eye, of single issue politics too, but that is his cause’s strength too. Find the causes that matter though, and try to direct attention.
