Rory Stewart is a new Defra minister and everyone says that he seems his own man and a bright guy. Certainly, he looks like he is a rather different kettle of fish from recent Defra ministers. So I thought that it would be worth the following gambit on Twitter:
@markavery: Minister, if I send u a copy of my book on why we shd ban driven grouse shooting – will you read it? @RoryStewartUK
and, slightly to my surprise, but delight, got the rapid response:
@RoryStewartUK – send it in!
So a copy of Inglorious is winging its way to Smith Square right now.
If the minister is reading it, you need to read it too – right?
