On not being able to see the wood for the trees

Wow. The government wants to sell all the UK's woodlands that it owns. The lot. Every twig. It doesn't care who buys them. Charities. Holiday camp developers. Road builders. Energy companies (lots of coal under the Forest of Dean). Loggers. Whoever.

Goodbye biodiversity. Farewell responsible stewardship. Au revoir tranquillity. See you, Robin Hood. No more Wild Wood. These mean nothing now. Only cash. This isn't just cultural vandalism, it's environmental destruction and social wrecking.

What you won't see

What we have to look forward to.
