Forest Witless

The Times has a good editorial today questioning the symbolic and practical value of the Tory-led government selling off the nation's trees.  I have to say, if this goes ahead, it will have one (unintended) positive result - it will render the Coalition unelectable in future.  Such a tone-deaf, myopic and small-minded bit of Gradgrindery is tantamount to the Sheriff of Nottingham's "cancel Christmas!" - but even he didn't strip Robin Hood of Sherwood Forest.
