I agree it was a step forward though that government took many a step back unfortunately
I am sure in the future we will have politicians who will have the moral courage and backbone to bring the driving of these monsters to heel
I sincerely hope you're right but fear that it'll be a long time coming
During the lockdown I have been cycling regularly with the Missus. It was really apparent with the lack of traffic that there were fewer squashed animals on the roads. Today was very different, I passed a squashed squirrel with its guts spewing out on the road and further up a Deer lying beside the road. The hit-and-run driver who left a bloodied seven-year-old girl lying in the road in Granchester (cited in this thread) still has not been found. Should we call this driver a non-romantic? I have other words for these people.
Some people have no moral compass outside of self interest,we're as a species a blight on the earth.
