Review 2013

Review 2013

2013 has been another relatively quiet year on the newswire, but it has not passed without event. Protests and strikes against austerity have continued and the death of Maggie Thatcher was marked.

Unfortunately, the year has not seen the resolution of the concerns about the project’s sustainability – despite a large and enthusiastic meeting in February – and these will have to be revisited in the new year.
