The "right" to roam

A new countryside code is being launched to give guidelines to ramblers. A tried and tested advertising technique will be used to get the message across: cute animals
The animated animal characters will appear on television and cinema screens to prepare the public for their new responsibility to safeguard the countryside.

They include Colin the pony, John the dog, Ricky the spider and two seagulls called Dawne and Issy.

I'm surprised that the BBC hasn't noticed that the animals all seem to be, how shall I put it, hideously white. Shouldn't we be seeing some critters of colour? There are certainly plenty of them in the Scottish countryside.

The critters of colour behind this assault on the right to private property are the Reds, and their lackies in Whitehall.
