Monbiot comments on predatory Cameron
A “PREDATORY” landlord takes over control of the countryside on 1 April, the environmental activist George Monbiot notes in his column in The Guardian.
The columnist is referring to Ewen Cameron, the new head of the governments Countryside Agency. Mr Cameron was formerly head of the Country Landowners Association.
Mr Monbiot is critical, but not unsupporting, of one of the key roles of the Countryside Agency – managing the governments new right-to-roam legislation.
