Chirs, you know the answer - it wasn't suggested by an MP, or an MP's friend, or a company an MP his his/her fingers in!!!
And it profits none of the above!!

There must be a shortage of sporrans in Scotland.

Yes, most of the hairy sporrans are made from badger!

:-D

And I thought there were still packs of marauding wild sporans in the less populated parts of Scotland.
In fact is it not the sporran rutting season when one has to steer well clear of them for fear of losing one's badger or beaver?

Not as naughty as the invading haggis army - although I have cornered them in the supermarket sometimes

We went on a haggis hunt when we visited Scotland.

They must have been hiding.

Been there, done that, got the Tshirt (but it doesn't fit any more).

There was a weird man on the hunt, kept mumbling something about badgers & growling :-D

Nice recipe Rollo. We don't have badgers in Oz, and wombats are protected. Could I use horse? :-D

Scozz - interesting no badgers in Oz. Is there bovine tb there?

NO to Badger cull- there are other ways (immunisation) to deal with this.

It's wrong, we should be protecting our wildlife.
