Abstract: “Why are you so negative?” she asked. “Always criticising. If you have a good idea, don’t bottle it up. Tell somebody about it!” I was explaining to my wife that the Government’s new forestry carbon rules wouldn’t work, but there was a better plan that might indeed promote the forestry sector. I opened my mouth to tell her that I have been boring people with positive suggestions for nearly 20 years, but nobody takes any notice. (Best wait until Government officials fall flat on their face, pick them up and then explain that their shoelaces are tied together! Until the accident, they don’t want to know.) But I didn’t say anything. The truth is, there’s always someone new who hasn’t heard these ideas before. So here we go again, and apologies if your CD-player brain doesn’t respond well to my cracked vinyl recording.
