Thread: BASC and CA unite against Packham

  1. #1

    Now is the time for us to contact the remaining organisation and advise them that we will be boycotting their stores and encouraging others to do so until they also request their logos are removed.
    I know LUSH will not remove their support as they have been intimidated by the anti's

    To be fair to LUSH, it is run/owned by antis and they're entirely entitled to their opinion - even if it is wrong. I'd rather reserve my disapproval for organisations that really don't care but allow themselves to be diverted by small and extremist vocal (or terrorist) groups.

    It's not 'legal' shooting that Packham needs to be afraid/concerned about, it's 'illegal' shooting.

    Much as I dislike Chris Packham, let's not be pots calling kettles black...

    I am certainly no Chris Packham lover but I have to agree whole heartedly with this post. Let's remember that we were all youngsters once and all no doubt did a few things that make us far from saints!

    as stated above its not how Packham got interested in nature, I started with a collection of birds eggs, at that time it was looked appon as the normal thing for a young lad to do, its what he is doing now that matters, he is distorting the facts to suit his own agenda and those of his supporters, to the extent that distortion is no longer enough he is Outright Lying, and should be called to book about it, especially by the BBC, as they are owned by the people ( nomatter what They think) they are charged with impartial reporting, and as such Packham has shown time and again he is incapable of being impartial, and he only cares about his OWN Agenda, and as such the BBC should let him go his own way and no longer give him the platform he needs and craves

    While I'd agree with some of this, your metaphor seems to be the wrong way around. Many of us may be pots, but Artschool is quite right - Packham's the pot calling kettles black.
    He's entitled to his opinions but he's got very little justification for his activities.
    The 70s were a different time, but then the population of birds of prey was declining rapidly and everyone knew that taking chicks from a nest wasn't in the best interest of the bird. It's not the same kettle of fish as potshots at garden birds or occasional poaching - and it wasn't then either.
