Sanity prevails

trees, lots of themWith rampant Thatcherism having briefly consumed the former Environment Minister, Mike Russell, the prospect of the sale of the nation's forests looked to be a runner.

Bizarrely, the plan was to allow the sale of the assets to investors who would be expected to manage the forests for the greater public benefit.

As opposed to cutting them all down and getting the proceeds tax-free as part of a scheme to line the pockets of the very wealthy wider tax-mitigation exercise.

Didn't they see that coming???? Apparently not.

Until now, when the long overdue death of the plan has been announced.

RIP - and I am glad we missed out on this.
