Nuts !

I picked up my Daily Telegraph this morning to read that England is on 'Red Alert'. Not surprising you would think, with Paris burning just across the Channel, a major terrorist cell exposed in Australia and everything else that is going on in this age of Al-Qaeda. The half page story on page 3 reads that the local reds must be protected against the onslaught of greys. which are to be shot on sight if they enter a ‘3-mile exclusion zone’. But this is not about Jihadists or rioting mobs. They are talking about the squirrel population of the UK! It seems the British red squirrel has been driven almost to extinction by its American grey cousins which are to be culled. In these times of turmoil, it’s comforting to know that at least the British are not losing sight of the important things in life.
