The nation’s trees can breathe a sigh of relief today – only if that is oxygen and not CO2, we don’t really need more of that – as Big Dave has disguised a complete and utter rejection of an awful plan as a public consultation in which the government had no point of view.

Shouts of “Timber” could be heard in Parliament when Cameron announced the U-turn over the potential sale of 258,000 hectares of forest. which is possibly the most witty retort I’ve heard from a politician in a long while.

Somehow I can’t see Cameron envisaging his Big Society being firmly located in the concrete jungle.
