  1. Up here in East Yorkshire its still very green, and very stunning on a sunny day too. Just a shame the road sides are covered in flytipping and mean looking pikeys, and the fields are filling with 125mtr tall wind turbines to spoil the view...
     
  2. Quite why they needed 500 experts to calculate this ? 1 GIS package doing unsupervised classification could have sorted that in 5 seconds

    Just another attempt by the two major scaremongers to put forward the left wing idea that all of Britain should be devoted to council housing I suppose. After all, countryside stuff is so boring, inefficient, dirty and uneconomical. And just think how many more immigrants/pikeys/asylum seekers/benefit recipients could be absorbed/dumped.

  4. I think those maps that appear in the papers at election time showing Red/Blue/Yellow areas are "interesting".

  9. Doesn't look that bad here in mid Wales on this map, however this doesn't take into account the industrialisation of the area with wind "farms", some 300 to 400 feet high, covering tens of square miles with more than 800 more proposed - so to the "Greens" and the Beeb this area is rural when in reality much of it is industrialised.

    Much of the flooding in Wales is due to the draining of upland bogs for these wind "farms" causing erosion and flash flooding downstream.

    And the point of this exercise is?

    Concrete everything so the water will just run off. Then we won't get any flooding again will we? :)

  12. Before all the happy clappy urbanites get excited about how many immigrants the country can still hold, I'm willing to bet 95% of the 98% is agricultural land. It might be green and pleasant but it is no more natural than Hyde park.
