Government plans to sell off the UK’s forests

The Government, in its great and infinite wisdom, plans to sell off large tracts of the UK’s forests to private companies to raise some cash – thus reversing laws which have protected them since the 13th century or in some cases even earlier. This is a spectacularly stupid and shortsighted piece of ‘planning’ – the Conservative Government tried to the the same in the 1990s, but were stopped by public pressure.
