I’ve been meaning to write about another e-petition for ages but somehow haven’t got around to it until now.
And it has done very well and is on 12,000+ signatures. And so, a little while ago, it got a government response from Therese Coffey and Defra. And what a soulless reply it is (and with a split infinitive too – what is the Civil Service coming to?).
I’d like the Robin to be my national bird, in England, and I have voted for it. You could too. But I dare say that if he were still alive Marty Feldman would not – see here (I thought that I might have referred to MArty Feldman on this blog once before, and I did, but since it was in 2012 then very few of you will have remembered or even read it then).
PS and my review of the updated edition of David Lack’s The Life of the Robin is here.
