“We have passed through a critical psychological barrier,” Dr Venter told the FT. “It has changed my own thinking, both scientifically and philosophically, about life and how it works.”

This is likely to have a huge, economic, social and environmental impact for the rest of the millenium so for a "triple bottom liner" its huge news!!

Con-Dem-Nation given to this by some in the out going party, but....

Con-Dem-Nation.............. it wasnt!

A new kind of press conference and leadership it was; in the garden, birds tweeting, laughs and jokes and straight answers. Wow! Good first day, lets hope for more!

UK Political leadership

Well, its all change, something of a surprise outcome but something of a master stroke on both sides and we all need it to work!

I would not have expected the tone and the stance to have been so clear and determined.

That's a good sign of leadership from a Prime Minister and Deputy!

The really key thing is this government had almost 60% of the turnout vote for them, they have a clear majority and they will not be allowed to drive themselves purely by ideology and dogma so for me that's real exciting, if not challenging to comprehend.

Lets look back in 6 months time.
