    No, no - he made clear who were lower than vermin, but he never actually defined vermin itself.
    Oh how we Tories smile knowing that your heroes like Marx and Bevan were infact a racist and an arrogant eugenicist who believed the poor were nothing more than feckless.

    At any rate, Nay. I like swans.

    I have to say I thought the Greens would be more enthusiastic about this. Swans as food would have much lower greenhouse emissions than beef, lamb and pork. What's more, they would of course be free range unlike those poor factory farmed chickens.

    They would remain to reside in the estuaries they already reside in - as made clear in Section 3(2)(d)(vii), conservation efforts would be a key factor when the Minister of Vermin is deciding who to award the franchise to. Therefore there is nothing to stop artists continuing to paint swans. Indeed, we highlighted in the notes the potential for tourism as one of the economic uses.

    I find it disappointing that so many conservatives who have commented seem to support continued public ownership, where it is clear that this economic resource is being wasted, rather than allowing market forces to come into play.
    Yes, funny that. Its almost like they want the things they like to be state funded and the bits they don't privatised. Hmmm
