Parliament Chops Down Another Rainforest

Some politicians scratch around for things to do during the Parliamentary recess. Paddy Tipping is one such politician. The Labour MP is chairman of that august institution, the All Party Parliamentary Group on Junk Mail.

This group expresses concern about the environmental cost of junk mail. They have just shared this view by, er, sending an unsolicited letter with a 14-page glossy document to all 646 Members of Parliament.

Environmentalism has become so hypocritical! I had a planning query rejected for a school for handicapped children because there was a 'troublesome' tree in the grounds and forthwith receive an envelope from the council which, I suspect, meant the demise of half a rain forest! I will probably get reported yet again but, in my book, people come first i'm afraid!

As featured on Iain Dale's Daley's Dozen today. Well done!

Cllr David Pickles (Independent and proud of it) said...

.........plenty of "er's" there Paul. Methinks you are reading Private Eye too much. Still, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery wouldn't you agree?

Just the one er, unless you count the ones in concern and Members. I do enjoy Private Eye.
