Forests Saved

Sometimes politics throws up some real surprises. One of these is that over half a million people chose not NHS reform or housing benefit reform or government cuts as the big issue for them. This was not enough to spark a petition of half a million people, It was the forests which really got the public up in arms. Perhaps this is why governments don't like to take on middle Britain?

It also produced a real moment during prime ministers question time when Ed Miliband asked if the PM was happy with the plans for the forests, Cameron replied, "no".

I was never a support of the plans myself see 'Save our trees'. I understand the principal of having an agency regulate the forests and others manage it but in this case the system works so if it isn't broke don't fix it.
