Scotland's Forests Safe

I'm glad to see that common sense has prevailed and that the SNP Government has ditched its plans to sell off up to a quarter of Scotland's forests. Scottish Lib Dem leader Tavish Scott, Euro candidate George Lyon and south of Scotland MSP Jim Hume had all spoken out about the dangers of the plans.

It's quite ironic that the day this is announced is the day that Tavish spends some time in a forest doing a tree climb for Comic Relief.

Anyway, this is not a time to gloat, but to be happy that the Government were prepared to listen to the strong arguments put up by opposition parties and rural campaigners.
