This is funny – I’ve played it several times for the chuckle it brings to my lips.
Play it, have a laugh and then email the Chancellor so that he might wake up to the importance of wildlife in our lives.
I’d be interested to know whether you get a respsonse from your MP like I did from mine. I grudgingly admit I was quite impressed by the speed and tone of this response from Louise Mensch (for whom I will probably never vote in my life, ever, ever):
Thank you for including Louise in your email to the Chancellor and Transport Secretary, she hopes that you receive a response in due course and has asked me to pass on the following comments.
Louise will be paying close attention to the economic measures announced in the Budget later this month. She agrees that a focus on economic growth does not mean that we cannot care for the environment. The growing strength of the UK’s green industry shows that it can in fact be a part of economic growth and the Budget next month should provide some detailed information on how the Chancellor intends to promote green technology even more.
A decision on the future of UK airport capacity will have to be taken sooner rather than later. Louise trusts that the environmental impact of any option will weigh heavily on decision makers’ minds.
Thank you again for raising your views.
Ms Mensch’s response has dramatically increased the chance that I might vote for her in the next general election from 2% to 4% – that is a big leap forward.
Although maybe I should take notice of the warning which accompanied her message ‘This message looks very suspicious to our SmartScreen filters’ – you might be right!
