What can I do for you, you just tell me what I can do for you? It's a very personal, very important thing, are you ready? I'm ready, just wanna make sure your ready brothers, sisters, here it is! Show Me The Ethics The Values & The Benefits. Oh, ho, ho, spell it out E..T..H..I..C..S Ethics!!! doesn't that make you feel good just to say that, say it with me one time. Show you the Ethics Oh, no, no you can do better than that, I want you to say it with meaning brothers sister. I've I got Dalai Lama on the line I better hear you say it, yeah, yeah, no, no show you the Ethics. Not show you, show me the Ethics, yeah, louder!!! Show me the Ethics, that's It brothers sisters but you gotta yell, show me the Ethics, I need to feel you, show me the Ethics, you better yell, show me the Ethics, show me the Ethics, show me the Ethics, show me the Ethics, show me the Ethics do you love your Banker, I love the Banker, show me the Ethics, I love Bankers what you gonna do? Uh congratulations your still my Banker!
Not all Bankers are bad, I personally bank with the Co-operative Bank on a personal basis and a commercial level as well. They've been recognised and awarded many times over, during the chaos, carnage and havoc periods of the the global financial melt down. Perhaps, prudence, caution and conservatism in banking does still exist? Whilst many others during these periods have obtained less than favourable press releases, certainly no peoples awards by the people for the people or should I say extremely bad press! I don't subscribe to the adage of any press is good press. The Co-operative have been progressive, whilst others have been "Battening Down Their Hatches." Following a Warren Buffet philosophy, buying whilst others have been trying to sell or get out of their exposure, or should I say over exposure http://www.co-operativebankinggroup.co.uk/servlet/Satellite?c=Page&cid=1169537495558&pagename=Corp/Page/tplCorp
Perhaps 2012 is the rebirth of another revolution, rekindling the values and principles of the Co-operative Group or were they also a movement in 1844, perhaps? For it takes allot to change public perception and consensus which finally leads to universal agreement, for necessary change. Sadly even change beneficial to humanity, now as the ethics, values and benefits of principles far and beyond monetary values reappear. Quite astonishingly when the facts and evidence are all so evident and visible also, climate change, cyclical or man made is not the debate but rather depleting finite natural resources. The QU & ARK Movement have been continually promoting and advocating these changes for quite some time and it should be about protecting land with the depleting, plus exhausted habitats with the protection of that natural resource. It should also be about politicians, locally, nationally and internationally with their responsibility and stewardship or rather the neglect of that responsibility. It should most certainly be about beliefs also, what ever your beliefs and religious denomination. Sadly blood is being spilt, maybe not on our shores but on far flung shores for diminishing finite natural resources.
"Therefore, the Lord God banished Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden and placed a flaming sword to protect the tree of life." Genesis 3.24 On this occasion it would seem that we do not need the Lord God's help as we are banishing ourselves from all Gardens of Eden. The pen is mightier than the sword and perhaps a flaming pen needs to be petitioned by more of us, pun intended. For if we don't, we may live to regret it and I do believe we already are regretting previous generations inaction's. Unless we're all blind or deaf even dumb to cyclical events? or man made global warming? as the jury's constantly out, even with evidence suggesting either or even both but again I reiterate the real argument is diminishing and depleting finite natural resource. That's the real crime, should we allow it to continue unchallenged, I don't think so! Some say, that mankind has consumed 50% of our finite resources in 100 years, do the maths. No wonder Stephen Hawkins Theoretical Physicist and Cosmologist is suggesting our only chance of survival is to spread out into space. Therefore perhaps our children won't live to regret our mistakes for being yet another generation that never acted!
KISS "Keep It Simple Stupid." philosophy and ideology. As people, money people individuals of a high net-worth are starting to finally get it. Ordinary people with not so much money are finally starting to get it, all quite relative. A penny to somebody who only has a pound is allot of money. However someone who has billions even millions can make a more surmountable contribution but the commitment and the contribution is just the same. Control the source i.e. control the money and you control the outcome, as we've all sadly witnessed via the Not So Ethical Banks but don't forget it's your money. So if you want to be part of a movement or a sophisticated automated system which you control and you have your say. It's simple, get involved, contribute, donate, care and share the opportunity to create change and be part of the difference that will change the World. For I am crazy enough to believe we can achieve a balance and equilibrium that has eluded us, not just for decades but centuries. Just remember the "Bigger Picture" only requires pledges, why would we want to risk £1M pledges when the biggest ethical duck that has eluded us and avoided confrontation with our philosophy and ideology is the political will and determination to make totally self sufficient and sustainable communities from newtech, cleantech and renewables reality.
Documentary "The Spirit of Business & The Values of Principles"
Aim to be Michael Moore of Scotland, not mythological, true to myself, and my beliefs for a very successful and progressive Scotland via unique innovation, ideas, concepts and visions, that will continue sustainable lasting and meaningful legacies for Scotland! Through macro and micro initiative and "Method of Operating" being ignored or traceable, organic locally sourced incentives being wasted. We will be exploring Banking, Finance irregularities, and catastrophic failures, plus continual self centred preservation monopolies. Through to humongous calamities by bureaucrats, politicians via continual errors in judgment, detrimental to our wealth and well-being. Plus business and planning processes and the inconsistencies via a multitude of planning and business applications that have no consistent logic or coherent pattern? Scholars and Academics, Historians, Physicists, Psychiatrists through to various Professionals from different specialist areas and fields and Business People, plus ordinary folk will be involved in the process and partake via interviews. Wishing to contribute towards making a meaningful difference, evoking, plus proving significant change for the better of us all.
The spirit, camaraderie, unity of the residents at Menie has not truly or honestly been captured. We intend to signify their courage and conviction in the face of belligerent and arrogant tyranny.
The World Need a Jolly Green Giant
We don't have a "Jolly Green Giant" Corporation but we do need an Eco Environmentally Sustainable Iconic Brand, with ethical values and principles via it's environmental stance.
Angels Of The North "Scottish Angels & Saints"

Thinking out of the box
Therefore I have formed a Co-operative/Consortium like motive operandi applying inherent value and intrinsic value towards it current pledgeholders, future shareholders and anticipated investors. Beyond the mere principle value of itself and Co-operative/Consortium Partners, who share the same values and principles towards executing, performing and delivering overwhelming and unconditional current pledgeholders value, future shareholders and anticipated investors value and returns, beyond mere monetary values and principles but more importantly Ecological and Environmental dividends and returns. Towards making a substantial and prolific difference, through evoking, plus provoking necessary change in attitude, behaviour, culture towards the ecology, environment and the built environment.

We all have the ability to stand up and be counted. Lift our heads above the parapet, make a difference, be that change. Especially unique and innovative ethical ideas for the better of all.
Other Local Heroes
Extremely admirable the protest and statement Doctor David Kennedy made. I would concur that Donald Trump is by no means an exemplar or shinning idealogy for students to admire or follow.
