Tim Coates, prime-minister-in-waiting of Britain, has hung up his hat. He writes:
"I started out by observing that just as we have come to expect that very little of the money we pay to charities arrives with the recipient we intend we have now to realise that the public services in our country work in much the same way. They are more about employing people than being any help; and they are about seeking ways of obtaining even more money from the public while giving little in return. Those things are not right. I am not stopping my attempt to revive the UK public library service– I’m just going to climb the mountain again from a different side. (or bomb it from a different direction)"
