Plans to give open access to the entire English coastline have been unveiled.
Everyone will have the right to walk a new 2,500-mile pathway round the coast under the proposed scheme.
Gosh, how fluffy and wonderful! But how is it going to happen?
It will create the first ever 'right to roam' at the edge of thousands of privately-owned beaches, golf courses and farms.
But the plan has run into fierce opposition from landowners and farmers whose properties border the sea.
Ah. So, the government are going to force landowners to allows walkers on there, are they? As usual, young Master Timmy makes the point.
Mmmhm Hmm. So, currently private property, land that the owner may, if he so wishes, exclude people from, is to have that right of exclusion lifted from it. That is, make it not private property.Landowners and farmers whose land will be affected are angry because they will not receive compensation and they are concerned that the value of their land will drop.
This is what is known as a "taking". Compensation should indeed be paid for this. If it isn't, it's theft. No, it doesn't make any difference that it's the government doing the stealing, it's still theft.
And who is the architect of this wonderful plan? Yes, it's our old friend Batshit, the man possessed of "an eminently punchable face; the sort of face you want to grab and hold down in the toilet for flush after gleeful flush, roaring with joy that there are such geeks in the world for you to torment." And so what has Batshit got to say for himself?
The Environment Secretary, David Miliband, who will open up the scheme for consultation, said:
"We are an island nation. The coast is our birthright and everyone should be able to enjoy it.
"I want families to have safe and secure access to walk, climb, rock scramble, paddle and play all along our coastline."
The coast is our birthright? What absolute fucking twaddle.
Look, Batshit, whichever way you cut it, this is theft and no amount of touchy-feeling, huggy-buggy, fucky-sucky rhetoric is going to change that, you thieving fucking bastard.
Miliband apparently got a First in Politics, Philosophy and Economics so he should fucking well know that property rights are the absolute fundamental of any civilised society. He has absolutely no excuse for not understanding the implications of this.
One can only conclude that he is a fucking lying shit, fully supporting a totalitarian government whose power is not loaned from the people but is derived from a moral rectitude that over-rides any petty concerns about liberty and justice.
Oh—wait—of course he does: he's a bloody little NuLabour socialist.
