Line of the Day

If information indeed is power, then GCHQ is undoubtedly the closest thing the British government has to the Death Star.

On a separate note, I grew up near a forest (well 'in' is probably a better word to use) so this is an issue that I hold dear. Hence, here is a paper on 'UK Trees and Forests' - probably not the most interesting read for city dwellers or perhaps it might be? (Try to ignore the Global Warming bollocks) Most of the UK used to be covered by forests but now it is only 11.8% (or 2.8 million hectares) which is still an improvement on the 5% which was the case during the First World War, for obvious reasons.
