Dear Adrian Essex,
Behavioural psychologists long ago discovered that if you reward a pigeon with food every time it pecks the button, it soon stops pecking when you stop the reward. But if the reward comes rarely and at unpredictable intervals the pecking continues for a long time after the reward stops. OpinioN8 newsletters come rarely and at unpredictable intervals, but you might not consider them a reward. There's an unsubscribe link somewhere.
The Liveable Crouch End Project has been going on for a long time now, and has suffered from leaflet drops, public meetings, co-design workshops and all sorts of other modern consultancy engagement efforts. Yet I'm still told that many Crouch Enders have never head of it. When it happens it will bring a back lash, so I'm trying to get my retaliation in first. For instance I'm unhappy with thecurrent management approach. And there is more stuff onOpinion8 should you be interested
TheLiveable Crouch End is really quite important. The chance to get more than £5m invested in Crouch End will crop up only rarely. We should take the chance to offer suggestions, and articulate our desires.
