Humans enhance habitats for grouse, Lynn News letters
How rich for a party which is willing to indulge the Queen for political expediency with the help of a London cabbie but is prepared to meddle in a pastime enjoyed by many including royalty, the latter being indicative of Labour’s visceral prejudice against the monarchy.
The grouse population is substantial in numbers to sustain this game bird sport, often with humans enhancing habitats making them conducive to maintenance of this breed of bird’s population, sometimes increasing it.
The hypocrisy of Labour can be substantiated with its record in government and other elected assemblies of mass house building on green belts reducing the populations of birds such as skylarks, yellowhammers, meadow pipits and turtle doves. There is a proliferation of urban foxes as rural ones are forced to relocate.
This reduction in wildlife is acceptable to Labour in pursuit of building multiple estates for the benefit of socialist voters, a form of legalised political gerrymandering on election days. These grousing metropolitans are devoid of knowledge in areas of rural affairs, agriculture and fisheries.
My old friend Steve MacKinder stood for election at the last council elections as an independent. I am wondering if he will review his own position consistent with Labour’s one on the Glorious Twelfth, the gentleman expressly being an opponent of royal shoots at nearby Sandringham.
