The Burslem Model

  1. There’s not enough money — in people’s pockets, in business’s tills and in the local economy.
  2. There’s not enough care — about how people are coping in their lives; about the environmental issues caused by our culture of mindless consumerism; about how people are treated as “customers”, or as “citizens” or as “constituents” (don’t get me started on the curse that is politics).
  3. Our heritage and heritage buildings that are undervalued, disrespected even.
  4. Ditto for our communities and for our families.
