BY NIGEL BEAN & PAUL READ The second year in a row and we find a bird of prey conveniently turns up dead two weeks before the grouse shooting season starts on 12th August.

BY FRANK HAVILAND Who would be a police officer in today’s London? When it’s not high heels, rainbow cars, and the latest colours from Maybelline, it’s being instructed to kneel, so those oppressed Black Lives Matter activists don’t bruise their knuckles as they sucker-punch you.
