There’s been a lot of discussion about the ‘IF’ campaign launch. If I’m honest, I thought some of the overarching messages were good. We saw an article in the Indy that talked about the problem of agri-business monopolies. And there was another on the weekend that acknowledged the problem of concentration of wealth. But the policy asks don’t add up – nor do the messages. I’ve put my thoughts in a blog for the Guardian here.
As set out on our website, WDM didn’t sign up to the campaign because it wasn’t southern focussed, and failed to acknowledge the issues I lay out in my article. Owen Tudor from the TUC also expressed his reservations yesterday here.
