News Brexit, Elections and Good Governance for Sustainable Development

The British elections provide an historic opportunity to develop a sustainable travel and tourism policy for the beleaguered British Isles, where the alleged exit from Brussels has provided the separation of thesis and antithesis to rear up at a societal level, and millions will be now involved in selecting a government to lead them on the path of sustainable development.  As a former EU Commission Staff Member I have a unique perspective on what good governance could be happening, as well a chance to shed some clarity for policy makers and voters on how to use the vector of sustainable tourism for economic environmental and cultural benefit for all.

My argument for all readers to talk to people to encourage them to vote tactically to reduce the number of Conservative seats and where possible vote for Labour candidates – and the  need to do this urgently - is based on the double whammy of negative Agenda 2030 scenarios and the devastating effects of the greed and selfishness of the a 1% that Boris Johnson and his Conservative hereditary hierarchies support.
