Are these richer, rural people going to come into the city to protest?
You must have missed the Countryside Alliance protests a few years back then. They're hurting too.
Haven't the land owners now got into wind farms though?
An uneasy truce seems to have been settled on where the Government claim fox hunting isn't happening, whilst the hunts themselves continue.
That obviously helps too.
The foxes have also decided to move into the cities. You must remember the baby mauling case this summer, and I see them every night walking my dog in West London.
Perhaps they'll eat all the rats going after the recycled food bins.
It's probably true that being in the country it's easier to escape the clutches of the state, so the stupid legislation does less harm, because it's less enforced, but it's getting harder all the time, and the sheer volume of it will cause problems.
Broadband is a dual edged sword; it'll allow city dwellers to move to the country and still maintain their businesses, forcing up the prices of local housing, which the rural poor won't be able to afford. Exacerbating an already difficult situation.
Who cares about the rural poor? They can move to the city - the rich are moving in. A LOT of millionaires live in Cornwall, they are attracted by the climate, the restaurants, the yachting the lack of non-white people, the super-fast broadband...
There are curfews in force in large parts of West London, it's already here.http://www.activealing.com/News/detail/ ... y-495.html
Another reason for those with any money to get out of the cities... sharpening the divide between Brownland and Whiteland. The first instinct of those who escape is not revolution but to maintain control over the unruly cities using force.
