I once proposed a ‘feel tank’ to look at Britain through emotions rather than the think tanks that are ever so rational and empirical. I imagined holding it in a Gallery, perhaps with a Rothko on the wall. It has never happened… but perhaps it might one day.
Having been nice about Allan (Asher) previously, he returned the compliment as I sent out an ’emotions’ note after my new NCC Board meeting yesterday (the meeting was brilliant). For the touchy-feelies out there, this was
· Hope: We hope that the Welsh Consumer Council names will be announced today (they were!) as a first meeting happens today
· Anxiety: The long-drawn out process of advertising for the Northern Ireland roles is a real concern and has been slow.
· Patience: We are working on budgets and what the new organisation might need to fly
· Pride: We have a High-Level Strategic Framework agreed and it is good!
