Norfolk - Day 2, Later

Ironic, I thought, as I marched peacefully through the forest, that it should be to the accompaniment of the sounds of war. I was at ease though; the small arms fire and explosions erupting on the nearby military training areas wasn't directed at me, and the RAF Tornadoes roaring overhead only LOOKED fearsome.

What was/is disturbing me though is the government's "consultation" on the sale of forests, and the pathetic cut & paste reply I had received from my MP (picked up as an e-mail on my phone during my forest manoeuvres). None of the questions I had asked him regarding the sale had been answered so I guess, like most with peaceful intentions, I'll have to reluctantly prepare for battle.

Were you honestly surprised at the response from your MP?

They only get off their arses if their is an election.

Alan - You're right, I should have known. And they have the nerve to call themselves "Honourable Gentlemen/Ladies" ...

Danny - That's the one.

I'm sure you didn't expect any real answers, they are only pretending to do what's best for the country in reality they're just out for what they can get for themselves.

Tilly - I won't tar all with the same brush but I did have high hopes/give my MP a chance. Regrettably he's not impressing me. Three e-mails questions to him; one hit, one disappointment, one no reply.
