There is unrest in the forest
There is trouble with the trees
So as I’m sure no will will have missed the news that Ash Dieback Disease has hit Britain and many of our Ash trees are under threat from the fungus Chalara fraxinea. Ash Dieback has decimated many trees in Denmark and there are fears it could happen here. Those paragons of virtue in DEFRA have come up with a cunning plan though… if you go walking in the woods when you come home you should:
Wash your boots
Your motorcycle – oops sorry wrong film
For fucks sake is this the best plan DEFRA can come up with? Surely there’s Richard Benyon saying let’s lock the countryside down so we can slaughter all the Birds of Prey – don’t laugh – look what the landowners did under the cover of foot and mouth!
Ah well, here’s a bit of Rush to lighten the mood.
