And so we say farewell to David Cameron the former Prime Minister and now former MP for Witney – I wonder whether the constituents who wrote to him about grouse shooting will ever get a reply?
Mr Cameron will be remembered for accidentally getting us out of the EU when he himself wanted to stay in – that’s power for you! The PR PM did not appear to believe in anything very much and having diced with Scottish independence and proportional representation and won, he diced with Brexit and lost.
I wonder what he’ll do now? Is he picking up tips from Tony Blair on what ex Prime Ministers do?
Cameron can now go back to a spot of shooting without fear of being photographed in an embarrassing fashion and there was the rumour that he was interested in buying the house and grouse moors at Tillypronie some weeks back.
Tillypronie has everything you need to chillax as an ex PM; pheasant shooting, grouse shooting and a spot of fishing for salmon in the river Don and trout in the Lazywell lochs.
And all for just £10.5m!
But it seems unlikely that Cameron will buy the place from Philip Astor as this blog knows that a powerful consortium of conservationists is also interested in the property which has great potential, unrealised as far as we know, for flocks of nesting Hen Harriers.
Could this be where Henry finally finds a home and a ringtail?
He’s already had a look and likes some of what he sees. Here he is pictured at the gates of Tillypronie. Shall we all chip in to buy Henry a new home on Donside – not far from Balmoral and Invercauld.
