I could do with £10k to get a social enterprise off the ground, but pointing out that on a finite planet infinite growth isn't possible, and we'd better learn to live without growth, probably wouldn't win it for me Very Happy.

Wouldn't do any harm to point that out Smile It depends if you've got the time to hand to write it out. I wouldn't go spending the money beforehand though.

Does he really earn £10,000 a year? I rather think that is only a small portion of his salary.

Funnily enough that is a question that came up when I was studying an Industrial Administration course in the early 1970s John.

I don't think my idea about using common sense rather than political dogma would go down too well either. Very Happy
