Bird Fair – Friday debate on driven grouse shooting.

Are you coming to the Bird Fair in August? Come on the Friday and you can attend a debate on whether we should ban driven grouse shooting with myself and the leader of the Green Party, Natalie Bennett on one side and a representative of the GWCT on the other with, we very much hope, a Defra minister too.

It’s good that the GWCT has agreed to field a speaker and I hope they get a very polite reception – as I have almost always had when I have attended the Game Fair for vaguely similar events.

And it would be very good to see a government minister at the Bird Fair – they often attend the Game Fair.  It’s time for Defra ministers to get out and see some other voters.

I wonder how many signatures our e-petition to ban driven grouse shooting will have gathered by 19 August?

  2. Had already got it in my diary, but now added highlighter to it!

    Will the Minister be offered a grouse burger? Lead free or full bore ....
