For Sale: All of Our Forests. Not Some of Them, Nor Most of Them – the Whole Lot

We now know, thanks to the junior environment minister Jim Paice's frank evidence to a recent House of Lords select committee, that the government is considering the sale of not just "some", or even "substantial", amounts of woodland as the public was originally led to believe, but of all state-owned English trees across the commission's 635,000-acre Forestry Commission estate. This includes many royal forests, state-owned ancient woodlands, sites of special scientific interest, heathland, campsites, farms and sporting estates.'

  1. Hmmmm....Once all the trees are sold off then I guess the next step would be to start selling the people off one by one like cattle.

    Many of the UK utility companies are foreign owned. Just shows the level of mismanagement here, which is unsurprising considering mostly numbskulls are in high positions of power here in "Great" Britain.


Thanks for your comment it is much appreciated.
