Changing the world

The American anthrolopogist, Margaret Mead famously said:-

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."

It's a quote that Bermondsey Dad is fond of using to inspire and motivate, largely to good effect.    Sometimes however, it's easy to get bogged down in the minutiae of everyday life and and since effecting real change can take time, it's difficult to get a sense of how a project is going.   We think of our projects as merely local, but of course everything that was ever worthwhile is local.   There's also a strangely English (and Irish) reticence about broadcasting our ambitions for fear of derision. 

Aaanyway...Bermondsey Mum has been acting as landlady to one of the campaign volunteers who happens to be American and BM loves Americans - loves them!  Have a look at his website and marvel at the sheer optimism and the conviction running through it like Brighton rock, that it is possible to change the world! And Go LibDems!
