Pat's Note: The long arm of co-incidence strikes. I can't seem to get away
from the Mitfords, neither it seems can the squirrels.
I keep wondering when the next instalment of the Unity Mitford saga will
emerge from the official files.
It has to be good, to have been kept so secret for more than 60 years.

Peer claims squirrel cull victory
A conservation group claims to have wiped out two-thirds of the grey
squirrel population in Northumberland.
The Red Squirrel Protection Partnership (RSPP), funded by Defra, has
targeted grey populations from the Scottish Borders to the River Tyne.
In just over a year, 11,615 have been culled using "humane pest control",
according to the group's chairman, Liberal Democrat peer Lord Redesdale.
That ensures the Liberals are off anybodies voting list for the next
ten years.
Grey squirrels are seen as a major threat to the UK's native red species.
They were introduced from North America in the 19th Century and have
out-competed reds because of their larger size and higher breeding rates.
Greys also carry the squirrelpox virus, which can devastate red squirrel
populations.
In January 2006, the government announced a targeted cull of greys in areas
where red squirrels were being squeezed out.
The RSPP, which received £148,000 funding, is alerted to grey colonies by
landowners or members of the public.
Lord Redesdale said: "Once we're tipped off about the greys, we move in and
set traps which are instantly effective.
"We can clear an area in matter of days, using staff specially trained in
humane methods.
"Some people believe it is impossible to control the spread of grey
squirrels, but we have proved it can be done, and reasonably cheaply."
The RSPP now plans to move on into County Durham.
Grey squirrels are considered pests in the UK, and once trapped it is
illegal to release them.
So many lies and doublespeak.

No wonder conservation is in such bad shape when huge sums of money
are diverted for tabletop CONservation and weird Nazi style principles
on genetic purity against British wildlife.

I wonder if these idiots are exiled Nazis?

of all the
rest to be the opposite. So far ambiguity exists, but not afterwards.
691. If one of two persons, who are telling silly stories, uses language
with a double meaning, understood in his own circle, while the other uses it
with only one meaning, any one not in the secret, who hears them both talk
in this manner, will pass upon them the same judgment. But, if, afterwards,
in the rest of their conversation one says angelic things, and the other
always dull commonplaces, he will judge that the one spoke in mysteries, and
not the other; the one having sufficiently shown that he is incapable of
such foolishness and capable of being mysterious; and the other that he is
incapable of mystery and capable of foolishness.
The Old Testament is a cipher.
692. There are some that see clearly that man has no other enemy than lust,
which turns him from God, and not God; and that he has no other good than
God, and not a rich land. Let those who believe that the good of man is in
the flesh, and evil in what turns him away from sensual pleasures, satiate
themselves with them, and die in them. But let those who seek God with all
their heart, who are only troubled at not seeing Him, who desire only to
possess Him and have as enemies only those who turn them away from Him, who
are grieved at seeing themselves surrounded and overwhelmed with such
enemies, take comfort. I proclaim to them happy news. There exists a
Redeemer for them. I shall show Him to them. I shall show that there is a
God for them. I shall not show Him to others. I shall make them see that a
Messiah has been promised, who should deliver them from their enemies, and
that One has come to free them from their iniquities, but no
Now now Steve Firth of Firth Consulting Ltd, Gisberto.co.uk and
malloc.co.uk there is now need to bomb so many groups just because you
have been caught out. Keep it to the one froup if you please.

Mind you it does make more sense than your usual pro hunt lunatic
rants!
