The One Show have been toying with our Olympics story but the baton has been picked up by BBC1′s Inside Out and Ed Hanson, in a brilliantly edited piece, got several Lake District tourism operators, including myself, to lay bare the government’s hypocrisy on the subject. I was pleased to do a follow up interview live on Radio 2′s You and Yours (Link to interview) and several newspaper interviews. This government, like its predecessor, is only interested in the public perception of their policies, and so, who knows, the more we can show them to be muppets, the better chance may have of getting something done.
The idea of Slow Life is to take the principles of Slow Food, which are “good, clean and fair”, and extend them to life in general.
Here in the Lake District, the air is clean, the pace is slow and the atmosphere is calm. If we don’t grow food ourselves, we can buy it in friendly small shops, where you know the quality is going to be the best.
This blog is a celebration of the Slow Life, with forays into the world of design, music, the arts, gardens, and my particular weakness, Japan.
