species is on the agenda and the agricultural lobby appears exremely interested in evaluating prospects in this regard.

Hi Craig

An interesting suggestion you have there - I can't see from this distance whether your tongue is in your cheek, or not!

My idea for a solution is slightly more radical, and perhaps in the end doomed to a series of spleen-venting irrelevancies ... I've been thinking about setting up an unapologetically leftist, pro-conservation forum or 'think tank', to have a crack at pumping out a bit of alternative spin, or anti-spin.

Feeling belligerent enough to join in?

*DISCLAIMER: * My employer doesn't necessarily support leftist pinko radicals, so take this as coming strictly from my private persona rather than my corporate one ...
