Government subsidises millionaire grouse shooters with public money – Pride’s Purge

Did you know that millionaire grouse shooting landowners – whose well-heeled clients can pay more than £3,000 each for a single day’s shooting – are now receiving millions of pounds annually in government subsidies? That’s what Tom Pride tells us.

And did you know that the Cameron government has decided that from January 2015, those same millionaire land owners will receive around £56 a hectare in taxpayers’ money for organising grouse shooting?

Read the full story on Tom’s blog.

    Would anyone with any sense expect any kind, constructive, decent actions from pigs like that! They are all tarred with the same brush; greed for themselves and hatred for anyone who doesn’t follow or agree with them.

    We desperately need to chose a government with brains and decency and it is our fault if we allow this ghastly lot back in through complacency.
