#Manchester #climate “Steering” “Group” “networking” “event” – video, inc Kate Chappell

Last Wednesday the (please insert your own quote marks around all of the following capitalised words) Steering Group for the Climate Action Plan held a Networking Event called Work in Progress.  MCFly was there (having not, this time, been disinvited) and even filmed it (except we forgot to push the big red record button).  After the vid, there’s a one-question quiz.

Question: What happens if you send out an invite,  by email only (and not using the bcc field even), on a Friday afternoon, for an event two weeks hence to be held somewhere nobody has heard of and if they looked it up would look intimidating, with no other publicity?

Answer: Exactly what happened; 30ish people, all white, all looking pretty middle-class, mostly from the soft-green sector.  Gender evenly split, but otherwise, gaaaaaaaah!

And yes, this is me being charitable.  If this sort of madness happens in June (the 4th, Town Hall, you read it here first) or in September, then I will get angry. And you wouldn’t like me when I’m angry…
