    In what other country in the world would you see this. Lowland dairy farmers going out of business, the price they get for their produce can’t sustain the cost of producing it. Yet an overseas landowner gets subsidised to the tune of over a quarter of a million pounds (average subsidiary for Scottish grouse moor) to employ a gang of xxxxxxx xxxxxxx xxxxxxx xxxxxxx xxxxxxx xxxxxxx xxxxxxx xxxxxxx xxxxx and be defended by top law firms when charged. Slightly better news today is that a top police commissioner has again called for tougher gun control laws based on worries over the mental health of some license owners. You only have to check back on this blog to see their are numerous people out there with guns who aren’t fit to have them, I refer to the keeper who allegedly held a gun to his girlfriend head, keeper’s venturing into public woodland to shoot goshawks, prominent members of associations face booking that they would like to burn protestors at the hen harrier day rally and the rest of the various wildlife criminals who appear on this blog

    Why has this case been adjourned twice.It seemed straightforward and because of the delays will it be time barred ? The gang ( Of game creepers ) that Merlin refers to have all come from Yorkshire and according to a local keeper that I spoke to recently they are regarded as a bunch of cowboys, Probably why they could not get jobs back home.I could give a couple of addresses if you want to send them a postcard.

      No, it won’t be time-barred because proceedings have begun within the three year period since the alleged offences took place. Delays are common for many cases going through the Sheriff Courts, not just those relating to wildlife crime. There are many procedural hoops to jump through.
