Controversial plans to blast breeding pairs of peasants were abruptly dropped by the Government yesterday, 24 hours after plans by the government to cull them were extensively highlighted and criticised in The Independent.

The Wildlife Minister, Richard Benyon, a millionaire landowner and keen member of the shooting community, had sanctioned a research project to investigate how best to prevent out-of-control breeding of young peasants in the country. The plan involved destroying peasant nests – known as ‘housing estates’ – by blasting them with shotguns and removing the indigenous wildlife which lives there to other wilder regions of the country – such as Liverpool.

The reason given for the policy was to protect nearby areas which are populated with richer varieties of wildlife – especially those species most at risk of extinction such as Toffs, Tories and Snobs.

Disruption of Israeli theater group in London, as BDS proves a win-win strategy

Activists unfurl a banner against Habima inside the Globe theater  (Tony Greenstein)

Israel’s national theater company performed The Merchant of Venice at Shakespeare’s Globe in London yesterday and Monday. But Habima’s presence was fiercely contested for months in advance, and both performances were disrupted by Palestine solidarity activists in the audience.
