Neopastoralism is really for the rich…


….just sayin’…

Tim Worstall is worth a read on this one. Follow his link to the Guardian’s Peter Preston and translate it, just translate it, into what it would mean for humanity if we were all forced, by the GramscoFabiaNazis to live like that, again…

(If you can’t get the PP link from Timmy for any reason, it’s here.)

Monty Don, a rich BBC-Tele-Gardner, savaged by Bella Gerens


David Davis

I’ve commented about this poor, sad, unhistorically-educated Monty Don chappie on The Landed Underclass, earlier, but Bella Gerens does a better academic demolition job on him and his hypotheses.

Yes it’s nice to play at growing a few veg – even keeping a few chickens, if you can stand the slimy shit, are prepared to shoot, gas or snare the inevitable foxes and hawks (beware of the RSPB Gestapo*** on that one!) and stuff their corpses in your wheelie-bin, and if you can bear, as a metropolitan dweller, to kill, pluck, draw and then cook and eat the poor bastards when the time comes.

I don’t object to play-growing. But it won’t feed a nation of 60 million, no way Monty. You can afford to, but we can’t.

***Hawks are of course quite OK, and ought to be allowed to predate your stuff all they want, but your food-birds are of no interest ot them whatsoever.
