This is a spare 'blog in case my main 'blog at markwadsworth.blogspot.com isn't working

Incorrect us of “we” etc.

From DEFRA’s press release accompanying that report saying that nature is of value to us (well duh):

Environment Secretary Caroline Spelman said:

“The natural world is vital to our existence, providing us with essentials such as food, water and clean air, but also other cultural and health benefits not always fully appreciated because we get them for free. The UK National Ecosystem Assessment is a vital step forward in our ability to understand the true value of nature and how to sustain the benefits it gives us.”

Or in plain English:

“The natural world is vital to our existence, providing a lucky few with essentials such as food, water and clean air, but also other cultural and health benefits, and we NIMBYs will fight tooth and nail to ensure that we continue to get them for free. But if any other f-er wants a bit of the action, well they can pay us oodles of money first. The UK National Ecosystem Assessment is a clue bat as to how much wealth is being transferred to Home-Owner-Ists thanks to them having monopolised the true value of nature and how we Home-Owner-Ists sustain the system whereby only we benefit.”
