There is no 'east west' dimension...

... apart from set-piece window-dressing things that make some politicians and some civil servants look and feel important, but which actually deliver nothing, with no organisational infrastructure or resourcing to make things happen within communities and for normal folk. "Strand Three" has no substance. In a previous life I used to get invited to 'important' meetings at which the press releases were approved before the meeting had even begun.

Out of the blue I was contacted recently by one of those. Avoid. It is people and community that matter.

With the current affairs media anticipating a 'deal' ahead of the 25th anniversary, maybe, after a generation of (this is a weird trendy internet politics word) nothingburger, it's time to actually deliver something on an east west basis? I'll not hold my breath.
