If you are familiar with Dad’s Army, you are familiar with the previously wild area of countryside affected in our particular area. Mr. Right On sounds very similar to the signature of the party line responses to local letters of protest. They have money. They have international organisation and backing. They have local volunteer supporters who have been persuaded by the idea of environmental good causes.
We have our wits about us. This is a teaser post for perhaps more to come… to Bud Flanagan’s tune….

Who do you think you are kidding Mr Right On
When you say you’ll cut things down
I’m a local oik, gonna stop your little game
If you touch our trees, I’m gonna sing about your shame
So who do you think you are kidding Mr Right On
If you think our trees are done

There’s an old boy down the road, his missus has his gun
She may pull it off for him, just to see you run
You sell us trust and then with lust weald your petrol axes
Turn Knettishall to Nagasaki paid for by our taxes
‘Cos who do you think you are kidding Mr Right On
Just you leave them trees there be

Where’s the Wild in Suffolk Life where Trust become betrayal
That ol’ boy Sir Rottenborough spins his carbon tale
Our trees breathe in our Co2 and we get back fresh air
Then you come down and change it all to leave us in despair
‘Cos who do you think you are kidding Mr Right On
Just you leave them trees there be

So take away your car park, your fences and your grids
Our trees give natural pleasure from pensioners to kids
We know Agenda 21 is real corpocracy
If you don’t leave them buggers be, we’ll bring back Hangman’s Tree
‘Cos who do you think you are kidding Mr Right On
Just you leave them trees there be

The Wildlife Trusts are cutting down trees to create heathland.
It is part of the plans of : http://jncc.defra.gov.uk/ukbap
According to Natural England:
“Woodlands are one of our richest habitats, containing a very wide diversity of wildlife.”
According to the Wildlife Trusts Tree Charter:
“We all benefit in so many ways from the trees in our lives – they clean the air, calm our minds, provide an important sustainable material, help prevent flooding, provide homes for nature, capture carbon, and much more. It is too easy to take these benefits for granted, but trees and woods are facing huge pressures and we risk losing them from our landscapes and our lives.”
The irony is the Wildlife Trusts are the most active party nationwide in cutting down thousands of acres of woodland to create heath.
