53000Another thousand passed!

I was on a grouse moor in Yorkshire with Chris Packham, in the Skipton and Ripon constituency actually, when I noticed we had passed this milestone and I texted the Moorland Association to ask whether they had yet found a landowner to represent their ‘sport’ at the Bird Fair.

These are the top 10 constituencies which have produced support for our e-petition to ban driven grouse shooting:

  1. Calder Valley Craig Whittaker 316 CON
  2. Derbyshire Dales Rt Hon Patrick McLoughlin 194 CON
  3. Ross, Skye and Lochaber Ian Blackford 230 SNP
  4. High Peak Andrew Bingham 220 CON
  5. Skipton and Ripon Julian Smith 209 CON
  6. Isle of Wight Mr Andrew Turner 204 CON
  7. Inverness, Nairn, Badenoch and Strathspey Drew Hendry 203 SNP
  8. North Norfolk Rt Hon Norman Lamb 197 LIBDEM
  9. Bristol West Thangam Debbonaire 196 LAB
  10. Brighton, Pavilion Caroline Lucas 194 GREEN

Here are what I think are the latest additions to the list of constituencies with 100 signatures (1 SNP, and quite a few Labour and many more Conservative):

  • Grantham and Stamford Nick Boles
  • South West Wiltshire Dr Andrew Murrison
  • Salisbury John Glen
