I think you may have gone off half cocked. He just seemed to be asking if landlords would sort out the issue of wasps nests in a professional manner. Seemed like a fair question to me.
Agreed.
I ND'd.

I apologise.

I haven't read the previous pages. But if you have a Holiday let it pays better to Airbnb it. One small cottage in the West of the Lake district charges £64 a night to sleep 2.. Mind the Airbnb take 28% from you for tax reasons.They also refund you if the place is trashed . Im thinking of making my bolt hole one.

Don't forget the cost of the cleaner and the laundry - they can make the profit dwindle for very short lets.

She was extremely lucky. Stag had gone down path at side of the house, trapped in back garden.
They arrived back from pub, investigated noise in garden, stag rushed past and ripped out her throat in passing. A fluke accident. Had to be immobilized to prevent further damage and allow healing.
Unfortunately, as alluded to in your post, several papers made more of an aspect of her private life than the accident itself.

However we do occasionally get folk hurt by deer (other than RTAs) usually stag trapped by antlers in a bush or thickett, someone goes to free them and gets gored.
Years ago my mum hit a stag in our MkII ford Escort (Beige - VUT485S and my first car, but I digress) and bent in a wing. The local garage sourced a replacement form the scappie and Mum called the forest warden. He called back a week later saying that there was one buck with a bit of a limp and that she was lucky as serious damage to a stag usually resulted in catastrophic damage to the car. If you hit a horse it goes over the top, if you hit a deer it can end up on your lap.

Deer strikes in 2011, 2013 and 2015 were frontal. Deer limped off each time. Minor damage to car.

Strikes in 2019 and 2021 were both into the side of the car. Stunned deer up and ran off.

(2017 was a very slow slide on ice into a local councillor. Not even enough bump to set off airbag)

Have your councillors gone feral?
Or, if SNP, are they simply fair game?
