The Other Pandemic

BY JOHN NASH Imagine, for one fleeting, bucolic moment that you are clip-clopping through leafy lanes on your way to market, sitting on your sturdy farm cart pulled gently along by trusty Clydesdale, Dobbin. Your faithful old dog Spot sits beside you, sniffing the country air, whilst behind you, the puzzled murmuring of a posse of free-range Rhode Island chickens in crates betrays the reason for … Continue reading The Other Pandemic

Yet More Packham Porkies

BY NIGEL BEAN That video tweet continues to haunt Chris Packham. If you recall he made it just before Christmas and it was supposed to answer allegations made against him surrounding Tiger-Gate, as exposed by Country Squire Magazine and the Daily Mail.

The Rise of the Eco-Greenshirts

BY JOHN NASH On the 15th of January, The Guardian, hardly noted for being a hotbed of right wing hubris, ran an article about scientists’ concerns that UK celebrity power is undermining global conservation efforts. In the article, reference is made to a meeting in parliament hosted by the Campaign to ban trophy hunting (CBTH) attended by activists, politicians and the media.  The CBTH is … Continue reading The Rise of the Eco-Greenshirts

Fundraising Regulator Probes Wildheart & Chris Packham

Heat Turns Up on Chris Packham

BY NIGEL BEAN Back in March Chris Packham used his privileged status as a BBC presenter to promote his girlfriend’s charity and zoo, the Wildheart Trust, across social media. Nepotistic but hardly illegal, you’d think? There was Packham, smearing the circuses and asking the public to give up their hard-earned money via crowdfunders for these half dozen ‘rescued’ tigers: Country Squire Magazine covered the story back in the … Continue reading Heat Turns Up on Chris Packham

Humanity & James O’Brien

BY NICK PEARCE On the 8th November 2018, James O’Brien, a DJ from LBC, unwittingly promoted a con. One of the victims of the con wrote an article in this magazine in January of this year detailing her experiences. The con centred around a homeless charity called Humanity in Torbay, Devon. The charity at the time was run by a certain Mrs Ellie Waugh. Waugh … Continue reading Humanity & James O’Brien

Packham’s Paper Tigers

BY NIGEL BEAN Without a doubt these are very stressful worrying times for the vast majority of people in the U.K. I think it’s a safe bet to say everyone has been affected in some way either mentally or financially by this virus. Charities are no exception, I’ve read articles suggesting 48% of charities are already in difficulty as donations have dropped, and others are … Continue reading Packham’s Paper Tigers

The DJ James O’Brien was interviewing a lady who was introduced as the CEO of a Homeless Charity in the South West of England. You can still listen to the interview on the LBC website, alongside an article stating: She spoke passionately to James O’Brien … Continue reading Gullible O’Brien Promoted Con

Torbay Investigation Update

THE EDITOR The residents of Torbay in Devon have suffered for many years at the hands of one of the most incompetent and corrupt councils in Britain. Only recently have they had an opportunity to express themselves and Country Squire Magazine has been only too happy to listen to residents’ gripes, while passing their more serious complaints to the relevant authorities. Indeed, many emails have … Continue reading Torbay Investigation Update

More Idiocy from Torbay

BY NICK PEARCE For a year now, from afar, Country Squire Magazine has been following the travails of the inhabitants of Torbay as they have faced up to their corrupt and incompetent council. In particular, the magazine has pointed out the council’s continuing disdain for the very sensible Neighbourhood Plan which locals have signed up to – aiming to protect some stunningly beautiful parts of England’s green … Continue reading More Idiocy from Torbay

Schroders Caught Up in L&G Mess

CSM Legal & General’s charm offensive to its shareholders didn’t go unnoticed by the Squires yesterday morning. After a piece on the Today Programme describing how L&G would from now on only invest in sound companies and avoid any which were badly affecting our climate and environment, articles appeared across the Web like this one outlining L&G’s new approach. Companies that ignore environmental issues, planning … Continue reading Schroders Caught Up in L&G Mess
