Excellent article about rewilding


I get to the “I’m alright Jack” stage with the whole thing if I’m honest.
We haven’t borrowed a lot of money.
We haven’t spent a lot on shiny kit or toys.
We haven’t bought land at top prices.
We don’t pay stupid rents.
We don’t take on more than we can sensibly manage.
We don’t employ expensive people.
We saw reduction in subs coming.
We do off farm non ag work.
We don’t run fancy motors.
We don’t go on foreign holidays.
We live modestly.
We’ll be alright.

As you say, there are so many different factions in the farming industry that trying to reach any kind of consensus is impossible.
So I give up arguing and we will do as we see fit and let the rest do as they like.
I’ve given up trying to change the world. It’s a waste of time and effort. Nobody listens. Let them learn the hard way.
ah...the mantra of the survivor
Do you believe it's compulsory then?

Do we have optional Green taxes ? Green regulation ? NVZs ... Red Tractor .. perhaps the Beavers will be "Optional". Rewilding "Optional" on land ? Flooding "Optional" ?

ELMS payments will be "Optional" from the governments side.

HMG is full of authoritarian ill-Liberals and Greens. They won't be able to help themselves.
Let me ask the same question in a different way:

Do you expect to be forced to sign up to elms?

Yes or no will do.

I do expect to be forced off BPS, forced into using less chemicals, forced into paying more taxes, forced into doing what I don't to do.

Be pedantic about any government government scheme - the net result has been in one direction for decades.

Do as I say - whilst HMG wastes money by the £Billions, usually on criminals.

The 'Illuminati' or whatever you want to call the Rockerfellers etc who REALLY control what's going on supposedly have a plan to divide industry up into 'local' hubs around the world. Europe is meant to be financial and techy from what I recall reading, farming is to be pushed towards America and Industry into the Far East.
Mumbo jumbo or is there something to it?
