Plan B likely needed

Letter

I applaud Toby Williams’ efforts to keep that land from going into pine trees. As a different approach to the problem, have you approached the vendor with a similar offer (to the pine tree offer) to buy the land?

I believe there would be enough private money (with bank support) to outbid the present offer and set up a private farming company that keeps that land from going into that crazy carbon sink programme.

I’m very sceptical of the dopey politicians being able to use the petition to stop the sale — you need an alternative.
