e-mail SDC comments to Ms Spelman

Hi Everyone,

Can I suggest that everyone who disagrees with removing the funding from the SDC e-mail their comments to Ms Spelman and Mr Huhne at: helpline@defra.gsi.gov.uk. I have sent the following:

Dear Ms Spelman and Mr Huhne ,

To my mind, the SDC was established to offer a focal point for Sustainable Development (SD) for the UK and in particular try to ensure that the UK governments (and others) were aware of the SD issues, had strategies to address these issues, had relevant SD targets and most importantly were on the road to achieving targets set.

Such SD Management by SDC has already identified and achieved major savings in the operation of UK plc, far out-waying the paltry funds required to fund the SDC. Yet you destroy the SDC.

You are, it appears, another one of the Coalition ministers who seem to think they have a total mandate to rip up any of the good systems put in place by the last government. In your terms of "first past the post" you plainly did not receive such a mandate and your indiscriminate actions scrapping both good (and bad) features of the last government is not worthy of honest and democratic politics.

The understanding of SD in UK is very poor and yet our future depends on it. Successful organisations such as the SDC need to be supported, not destroyed. You should be ashamed.

Yours sincerely,
