Friday 17th June, School Strike week 183 in Ullapool, Scotland.
Myself and Ella spent 2 days at #SeaScot22 in Glasgow. Great to finally meet some of the marine people in person rather than on yet another Zoom call.
As per usual the keynote contribution from The Scottish Government minister Màiri McAllan MSP for Clydesdale was yet more ‘world leading’ spin and meaningless statistics. Why do I always find myself screaming JUST GET ON WITH IT ! whenever any politician is talking about the climate or environment.
Main takeaways : As usual no shortage of ambition from @MairiMcAllan & @scotgov policy makers. But please just stop moving the goal posts – eg the new NMP2. Take real action NOW, implement the ambition & fund it properly so it can succeed – the allocated £0.5m SMEEF fund is a joke. We need billions invested to bring about real recovery. Cheaper by far to prevent damage in the first place than to try and restore after the damage has been done
The snacks n food was top notch!
