I'm not quite sure what you mean Michael? As far as the local situation in Bimringham is concerned obviously that is of interest to those, like me, who live in the area. But when you say a 'voice within the forum' do you mean this forum? I certainly hope so as everyone has a voice here. And as I said I hope people will post their own experiences. It is one of our hopes that this Forum can be a meeting place for people who are campaigning for SUI in their own areas.Great you have 'wetted' my appetite for more information -
1/ what happens next owt or nowt?
2/ have we not a voice within the forum as it is country wide (internationally) and will give a snapshot look at what is considered to be the current situation?
3/ Another word of caution though, although my gut feeling is to accept the survey as it would agree with my feelings, I would want to know a few of the parameters to which the survey was set ie location(s), timescale, level of person surveyed, there will be more but without the background information presented I have learnt through bitter experience never to trust surveys without it.
Thanks Michael. I think it would be a bit ambitious for us to say that we are in any position to do anything about something like this on a national, or even local basis, at the moment. This forum is very much in its infancy and is still small - at the moment I think sharing information and developing our understanding ( and making the Forum bigger ) is our best target.It seems to be obvious within the survey that there is something wrong, and I wonder who will be doing what to instigate change?
I would also think that it was the same country wide but this would only come to the fore if people had an independent voice.
I get the impression that as a group we are very disjointed, whilst that is the case the clarity we need/require will not be forthcoming.
The particular section that said some where making careers out of the involvement rings warning bells in my ears, my gut feeling is not good but I would really have to know more detail (like the detail of the survey)
I just get a very bad feeling over this.
