I imagine that must be pretty much the last thing Liz Truss will do in that job!

11.34: she's just turned up in Downing Street! Lucky she got that one in the post yesterday...

Well done BASC & CA. Having read Liz Truss's letter to Jonathan Swift I wouldn't care to be his dog right at this moment.

Ladies and gentlemen, Liz Truss' successor at the Environment is....



ANDREA LEADSOM! She even has lead in her name. Is this a good thing, a bad thing, or an indifferent thing? No idea.

A Deader Salmon
A Loader Amends

and....my favourite...

We have already taken CP to task on this and we have been widely quoted in the national press today. Timing is great, CP says the meat is toxic and 24 hours later DEFRA and the FSA confirm its not!!!

Toxic. Right so why have we not seen hundreds if not thousands of people die then?? Where do they get this information from, toy town??

I would rather use a soft nose bullet than the hollow point ones. I know they have improved a great deal over the years, but having seen what the early Barnes X bullets did on Red deer in Scotland some years back, I would stick with expanding lead bullets every day.

Andrea Leadsom is very much in favour of both shooting and hunting with hounds.

I suspect in CP's case, the amount of lead per bird presented might have been correct; but that the chemical and physical state of the lead with respect to risk of toxicity was not taken into account.
