Unbelievable. His latest wheeze to combat climate change is to suggest that villages don't need street lighting as we are country folk so can use a torch.


Just demonstrates how "they" don't give a toss about those of us who live & work in the countryside.

Let have more examples of the "urban elite" giving us a good fingering

He's got form

Some of his proposals to save us all are frankly bizarre

I don't understand he reasoning, he says rural people can use a torch but people in urban areas people need street lights to feel safe. Why do my elderly parents not have a right to feel safe in their own neighbourhood?

I also don't understand his reasoning behind high taxes for SUV's, he states they are a fashion item, right, but surely foreign holidays are also a fashion item? no one is skiing in Japan, Canada or Colorado for utilitarian needs, neither are people pissing it up and whatever else in Ibiza as part of their vocation. The fashion industry is one of the biggest carbon emitters, by his reasoning clothes should be banned or highly taxed - where does that leave people on limited/small incomes?

He and his tufty club committee are conveniently turning a blind eye to HS2 which is currently using two thirds of the nations concrete supply (the most carbon heavy construction product) to shave ten minutes of a train ride from Birmingham to London. Lunacy.

The mans a silly old prat. You do get tired of being lectured at by spotty know all teenagers and dementia ridden old farts.

Back on thread - look at your council tax compared to somewhere in London, you will be horrified at how little they pay in comparison to the value of the property.

He was our local mp and lives very close. When this was reported on our local radio station 90% agreed with him!

In July, we opened the applications window for farmers to join our Sustainable Farming Incentive pilot.

The Sustainable Farming Incentive is 1 of the 3 new environmental land management schemes. It sits alongside the future Local Nature Recovery and Landscape Recovery schemes.

Through the Sustainable Farming Incentive, farmers will be paid for environmentally sustainable actions – ones that are simple to do and do not require previous agri-environment scheme experience.

We are piloting the scheme to...
