- Too far away from the wild places!
I think it's more a case of everyone being an expert in what actually happened, the chain of events and motives. That's far from clear.A while ago everyone was an international trade expert. Then with days of training everyone became a global epidemiologist. Now all the same people are expert environmentalists.
I can only just keep up with the spelling...ain’t social media great
Two scenarios, and I stress scenarios, from the info we have seen reported.
The first, the farmer was pissed off at his planning application being refused and the "clipboard" mentality of the EA, etc, so took matters in his own hands.
The second. The farmer was genuinely trying to help locals out given no lack of action from the authorities on flooding and another winter pending - as has been said above, a local "Robin Hood".
If it's the first, throw the book at him. If it's the second, it's a bit less clear. Either way, this incident can't now be swept under the carpet or it will set a precedent but I'm not holding my breath.
