"The remarkable thing about this project was not just sugar, an extraordinary but much taken for granted commodity but the extraordinary lives of ordinary refinery workers... This project has lots of historical curiosity value but it has wider ramifications for ongoing debates on the politics of food and globalization. It's also a vital record of the people who struggled against a major multinational to protect not just their own livelihoods but a whole community."

May I take this opportunity to wish all past and present people of Tate and Lyle, Liverpool, a joyful and happy Christmas. and in the words of Laurence Byron may I please add,
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old,
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
With many, many thanks to my father who taught me so much about myself. RIP. Ronald Duggan.
Myself,I leave on Saturday 30.11.2013 for 6 weeks tour of Namibia, up through the Okavango Swamps, Victoria Falls, Maputo (Mozambique) and back through Durban. I have a fully kitted out Pajero for overland travel that is my weekend toy. a long and hard year but a good one.
And so this is Christmas, and what have you done ?,
Another year over, a new one just begun….
