Politics, Coalition & The Outdoors

I've just returned home having spent much of the last few motoring driving across substantial chunks of SW England.

On the one hand - the extreme tedium of long motorway hauls. As a balance - sunshine blessed meandering along sunken single trackway on the edges of Dartmoor.

The one inescapable fact that stuck me, from all this, is the sheer amount of green and open countryside in this part of the UK. Outside the grasp of the conurbation, Britain's rural scenery quickly re-asserts itself blending countryside and hamlets happily together.

All of which comes as a pleasant relief from that easy conclusion, on seeing the same old city landscape during the daily work routine, that the whole of the UK feels like one huge built-up area.

So it will be interesting to see what will come from this item in the Con-LibDem agreement:
"Measures to promote green spaces and wildlife corridors in order to halt the loss of habitats and restore biodiversity"

Heathrow Airport runway plans have already been scrapped after years of proposal & counter proposal.

Keep watching folks.
