Oh Aye, There Be Dragons: page 24 of Beeches, Boreholes and Badgers

20 years ago, 20 miles away from the Moorside site the National Park vote to fell all the Rusland Beeches because ““Safety is our first priority” Ha Right! The National Park are now 20 years later supporting “traditional” new nuclear build with untried untested reactors next to the already most dangerous stockpile of nuclear waste in the world. Unlike the localised hazard of trees, ALL of Cumbria’s safety, not to mention our neighbours, is being knowingly sacrificed at the altar of Nuclear.

24...

19th July 1996

National Park Management meeting at Murley Moss.  The Committee vote 8 to 6 to clearfell the Rusland Beeches.

Comments include:

“The trees are at the end of their life”

“The remainder will look ugly if not all are felled”

“Safety is our first priority”

“The National Park Authority’s expert is more qualified than the campaigners expert”

I feel like a harpy that should glide over and do damage to these bureaucrat dragons but I sit there weeping.

Note:  July 2016
