Foolishness and pigeon plans

WHEN I first read of the pigeon dispersal programme, I thought it was an April Fool joke. Now I see it is serious (The Hunts Post, January 24). A question or three arise. Have the pigeons avian rights been violated? How do they know they are to disperse?

A question or three arise. Have the pigeons' avian rights been violated? How do they know they are to disperse? How do they know where they are to eat in future? What penalty is to be imposed on a recalcitrant who refuses to be dispersed? Grounded for a week, confined to nest?

I have said it before - the lunatics are running the asylum and they are getting closer. Once they were all MPs - now they are county, district and town councillors.

In my youth, pigeon pie was a delicacy.
