Shit will hit the fan in 2008 with the planning reform bill -- stuff related
to that should definitely be on the list since I don't think that small and
low impact development by individuals will form part of the strategy for the
review (essentially, it's about carving up land for large corporations in
order to make our planning system "competitive" with China or Indonesia).
"We are not for names, nor men, nor titles of Government,
nor are we for this party nor against the other but we are
for justice and mercy and truth and peace and true freedom,
that these may be exalted in our nation, and that goodness,
righteousness, meekness, temperance, peace and unity with
God, and with one another, that these things may abound."
(Edward Burroughs, 1659 - from 'Quaker Faith and Practice')
