UK Forests Saved
I have been blogging about the UK Coalition government's misguided plans to sell off its national forests (see here and here). Those plans have finally been abandoned. The Independent is reporting (here) that, in the words of Environment Secretary Caroline Spelman, "we got this one wrong." Indeed they did. Thank goodness the government was responsible enough to recognize the error of its ways and reverse course.
