  1. Part of my current apathy is the total lack of any opposition to our encumbants who like the central government only look after themselves. At the top level the blue lot are an absolute shambles and I would struggle to support them and the lot in red want to take my guns and my fishing rods away.
  2. Strange old world we live in. We slaughter 8-900m chickens annually (+ imports), tens of millions of sheep and cattle but those carcasses are cleverly hidden in plain view in chiller cabinets, freezers or hidden between two bits of bread. We love our fluffy cats but then we pretend to not notice the hundreds of millions of small birds and mammals they kill. But somehow our detractors manage to convince those same 60m+ meat eaters and moggie owners we are somehow more cruel and less human than they are. There is a big Truth we need to tell - we love hunting, shooting and fishing and the rest love eating meat which just doesn't die of old age. I have more respect for vegans!
  3. I've had my issues with BASC in the past, particularly when East of England was rolled into Central Region, but given the way our world is going and even bigger threats on the horizon I feel the time is right for past differences to be forgotten and us all pull together and support whichever organisation we subscribe to. We have some very vocal and well known detractors and more to come I fear. I have to be a member of BASC but I intend to join another (or two) organisation soon but which one(s) I'm not sure. Ideas and why welcome.
  4. Personally I think PM(TM) is a genuine and honest lady but she is surrounded by a bunch of self-serving, selfish ****s - both sides of the House - who were determined to scupper Brexit from day one. I think she has tried to be even handed and land a deal that could have worked for Remainers too but she just didn't have any support. God help us now as we just might get Boris or worse if a GE happens that idiot Corbyn and the red army.
  5. Couldn't be *****. Didn't votes in locals either. If there were a GA tomorrow I would probably stay in bed and I've never felt like this before in the 40yrs I've been allowed to vote.
  6. I think this is very likely. We have a couple of generations of 'snowflakes' who believe the lies and the lot in blue have made such a horlicks of Brexit that we just might see JC as PM. I nearly said at 'number 10' but the **** *** has said he would continue to live on his allotment and us Downing St as his offices. God help us.
  7. Population explosion is the 'monkey (or elephant) in the room' and I despair when I hear of the latest rewilding proposition which will almost certainly create division and acrimony wherever it may hit us. 60 pairs of sea eagles on the Isle of Wight(? I was only half awake) was proposed by some guy on Countryfile with the hope these will expand to join with European eagles and populate the South of England and other European countries. So this will screw up sheep farming although is this all part of the move to ruduce meat consumption and make us all vegan? I worry for my grandchildren.
  8. But the big problem that no one wants to mention and which screws up all attempts to right the wrongs is our massive, expanding population - from 3.8bn to 7.6bn in 40 yrs. This gets mentioned from time to time but no one then expands on the fallout ie we don't just give birth and dig a hole and live in the wild we concrete over the countryside; we buy cars; we build millions of miles of roads; we need doctors, hospitals, planes and airports etc etc etc. We are hugely greedy and nature is displaced. Enjoy what little bit of nature you have because future generations may not have any!
  9. Loved the fat bird with the anorexic trans frog! Why is it they all speak English and several other countries have English artists??
  10. For the first time ever (I think?) I just can't be bothered. So fed up with the 'political elite' in fact were there a GE tomorrow all I can say is I would not vote Labour.
  11. Husky every day. I've got half acre of grass and this machine has 23" cut, side shute, self propelled and soft start Honda engine. Even wife likes using it.
  12. Got one or two here in Sth Norfolk - saw one yesterday very low over rough ground where I know there are a few pheasant chicks. He saw me and disappeared. Not a problem here so long as numbers remain as they are. Buzzards are however, far too prolific.
  13. I see this am, in the debate around the rich list, some of the very, very wealthy are already leaving the UK fully expecting the mess PM(TM) and her sidekicks have made of Brexit will let Beardy Bloke and his Far Left lot in. Many of you of a similar age to me will recall when old Labour were in and tax rates at the top hit 90% overall receipts dropped dramatically. They don't care of course as this is the politics of greed and envy. Get ready to sell your guns boys as Corbyn will take them off you. We won't get support from the others as Greens and Liberals all want shooting outlawed.
  14. These were not safety-related items but both resulted in us being stranded with cars which would not start. The recent incident was very distressing for my wife as she was at a funeral home with her 90yo mum (who is as mad as a bucket of frogs) who had just sorted out a funeral plan. Sadly this did not result in my M-I-L using her expensive funeral plan!
  15. Having read the GL and your comments I find it hard to believe anyone could be prosecuted and who will monitor crops over a period of time to check measures being applied? In my county are talking about thousands and thousand of hectares, a vast variety of crops and circumstances and, I suspect, no likelyhood of this being a police priority. If I get a call to arms surely it is a simple and uncontested argument that the crops are being damaged and pigeon numbers need to be reduced. Hopefully sensible work will now commence to assess pigeon numbers, the impact on crops and revenues and get the GL amended to ensure a flexible, workable set of rules. Roost shooting could be interesting - 30-40 guys in woods spread over thousands of acres. You would need half of Norfolk's limited police force to check just one estate! Having said above our associations - NFU, BASC, CLA etc etc - need to lobby Government to get this reversed and soon as we may have the spectre of a Corbyn government who we know would support the mentally retarded character behind this fiasco. Our beardy far left guy wanted all guns banned unless used for professional purposes - what does that mean for the vast majority of gun owners??
