Save Mrs Tiggywinkle

Britain, UK news from The Times and The Sunday Times - Times Online
HEDGEHOGS appear to be in decline across the country, according to a survey.
In three years, sightings of the mammal were down by a fifth.
..
The main reasons for the decline are unknown but potential causes are intensification of agriculture, with much larger fields, less semi-natural habitat and more pesticides on the land, plus drier summers

Yea yea yea - Agribusiness and climate change, the usual suspects. But in the last three years there has been no increase in larger fields, there has been a large increase in semi-natural habitat and Pesticide usage is decreasing. Doesn't anyone do a modicum of research before shouting their mouths off?

May I suggest that the large increase in the hedgehog eating Badger population might be a more likely candidate?

"May I suggest that the large increase in the hedgehog eating Badger population might be a more likely candidate?"

No you may not. The badger is NuLabour's number one creature and they are committed to protecting it (from man) at all costs (even including costs in TB to the badgers themselves).

NuLabour has in the past (and possibly still does) recieved sums of money from various animal "rights" groups, and consequently there has been a moratorium (contrary to law IMHO) on any badger culling.

I imagine that the present sitaution will not satisy such groups, I expect to see an Offences Against the Badger Act that will no doubt outlaw speech and thought disparging to badgers.

So whatever you do never call a badger gay!
