I was going to blog this morning about all the things we have not collectively done this year.
You know the sort of thing. Tackling climate change; inequality in all its forms; social security reform that really works; education for the real world. The list goes on.
But you and I both know this stuff. And we both know that a government hooked on delivering economic, social and geopolitical failure for this country has ensured none of these things can be addressed. So what is the point on dwelling on the failure?
Next year is going to be tough. Maybe very tough. But this is the time to dream about what is possible.
And that’s not just tackling climate change, and all those other things. It’s about the things that matter every day.
I’ve never been a massive fan of the commercialisation of Christmas. I never will be. But when it’s about caring I do think it matters.
The single biggest change to wish for next year is a bit more caring. That would make a huge difference. I could do with that for Christmas.
