HARPER SCARPER

Rowdy defenders of the Forest of Dean let Tory MP Mark Harper know exactly what they thought of his plans to sell off the forest (see SchNEWS 757). A sorry excuse for a ‘consultation’ meeting last Friday (4th), with inadequate space and only 24 hours warning, saw him noisily barracked throughout by public attendees, from children to OAPs.

His attempts to then flee the scene unmolested failed as a 300-strong crowd outside the venue, pelted his van with eggs and blocked the road as he tried to make his police-escorted get-away.
