Yesterday, as I was talking to the East Berks RSPB local group, our e-petition to ban driven grouse shooting passed 19,000 signatures. Last year it took over five months to reach this level – this year we got there in under two months. Momentum is building and we are gaining support all the time. Thank you to all who have signed – now find a friend to sign too, please!
Earlier in the day, after six weeks of thought, the Westminster government published its response to our e-petition, as it was required to do because the e-petition had amassed over 10,000 signatures. I’ll blog this evening on what I make of the government response, but many of you have already had your say here and on social media. Here are a few examples:
@blythestorm Read response. Government should read Inglorious. Big load of bullshit and we are looking after our friends.
