Moaning misers

Great Planes by Alastair Riley
I've been keeping my head down recently as I write for England. I broke my silence today when I attended a public consultation by Hammersmith & Fulham Council and Groundwork the conservation body in charge of the biodiversity action plan at The Scrubs.

To cut a long story short, the meeting was eventually held in the womens changing rooms of the Linford Christie Stadium on the southern border of The Scrubs due to us being locked out of the Community Centre. It's amazing just how het up some people can get when it comes to their perceived feelings of gross injustice and infringement of human rights because a couple of saplings had been planted on The Scrubs!

Those people just don't listen to reason and when they started blaming the council for the foxes mating outside their houses sounding like a girl being murdered I knew that it was time to go.

I calmed myself down by looking at Alastair Riley's lovely painting of urban Great Tits.

I think I'll steer clear of committees, although I was recently asked to join a prestigious local one - yikes!
