Look at these pictures. Then imagine that it's a deforestated landscape in Brazil or Congo. Then ask yourselves why our conservation standards should differ from those we expect in other nations Then wonder why we allow the ecological cleansing of the UK's uplands to continue.

This tweet remains the most accurate summary of our times yet written. The descent into madness of The Telegraph, The Times and their baby-boomer readers is the British version.

It is for just that reason that I am unlikely to be gentle.

Well, if I get the chance and I think it's important enough (at the moment I judge that it isn't), I'll write a column about it. But beware of what you wish for. I will not be gentle.

Now apply that logic to conservation land in, say, Brazil. Land that, like most of our uplands, was previously covered in rainforest, and see where it takes you.

The RSPB is great in many ways. But it's time that became much louder and stronger. Less pussy-footing, more staunch defence of the living world please.

I respectfully disagree. Licensing driven grouse shooting is like licensing river pollution. When something causes so much ecological damage, the appropriate measure is a ban. On this and other issues, is far too timid.
