I wouldn't get too het up. Within the environmental movement there are 'diggers' and 'dreamers'; this will fall into the latter.

Sounds like a load of old stroke, usual middle class academic suspects moaning and talking about perceived inequalities. It’s a “Non hierarchical collection of groups”, presumably of folk with a fair bit of time on their hands.

Sat next to one once at some nfus event discussing land ownership in Scotland. Could spot him a mile off, beret, scarf, thin moustache, berghaus coat and slack corduroy trousers. Didn’t engage in conversation and scuttled off out the door the second it finished.

What could possibly be wrong about the redistribution of land to worthy recipients 🤔 worked for Mugabe after all.........oh..........er.......... hang on a minute.

Well I agree, there is great inequality in land ownership, and I think it should all be distributed equally between everyone in the UK
it worked really well in Russia under Lenin where the great old landed estates were split up in egalitarian ways so the peasants could for the first time in their lives have a fair income.
sadly the peasants got so rich, Stalin realised they were the real villains and needed exterminating.
However I am certain that this would never happen in the UK and I will have to settle for my little plot. ;)


Arable Farmer
It’s just a bunch of ‘crusty jugglers’, too 'woke' to realise that their families sold whatever rights they had to land generations ago, so that they could leave rural drudgery behind and move to the fast developing industrial towns.
Now they want a second bite at the cherry by pretending ‘their land’ was ‘stolen’ 🙄

There is an argument that it is not very fair that Landowners can sell a plot of building land for £100,000 just for a single but modest house, when thousands of young working folk haven't a hope of either owning one or renting one at an affordable price.

Just saying.
