A Character Reference for Sabine McNeill
from Rev. Canon Peter Challen, Chair Christian Council for Monetary Justice.
I testify out of 25 years association with Sabine McNeill in the longing and action of searching for inclusive justice, that she is a woman of stature among many with whom she has worked, and with many more for whom she has spoken out bravely in complex, sometimes crucifying, situations.
She has high intelligence, a rather rare selflessness in her gifts of time and energy and a persistent altruism that makes her fearless in the cause of compassion. She has shared with those she meets a vision and passion for a rediscovery of genuine justice in society, giving a sense and place of identity and dignity to everyone without fear or favour.
I have witnessed occasions when she is speaking, as so often she does, in support of others less articulate and informed than she, when her passion may have over-ridden discretion; but I have never doubted the sincerity and integrity to which she is devoted.
Being out spoken in a society where vested interests often hold powerful sway requires courage. Sabine McNeill is a person of such courage in setting an example from which many have benefited.
Sabine and I have in common the oddity that we each had a father who urged us to retain integrity with the refrain..’All Power to Your Elbow’, which led us both on our life-long paths to speak out for compassion and against injustice.

This came as a big surprise and a WONDERFUL sign of support, encouragement and empowerment! It does help to know that others feel I’m doing what I’m doing for many, many others!!! Thank You, Peter and Naomi who told Peter about my challenges ahead!!! Peter and I really made the Forum for Stable Currencies work after Lord Sudeley inspired us to this possibility. But he lost his seat when the House of Lords was reformed and Austin Mitchell MP continued as our sponsor.
