Twitcher in the Swamp

By - Peter Marren

"As its top story this September, Country Life ran one of those boring and infantile 'Top 100' lists, this time devoted to finding The Most Powerful People in the Countryside. The cast is headed by The Queen, who is said, rather bafflingly, to 'give us our countryside DNA'. It ends with Jordan aka Katie Price, the ubiqutous all-round talent with big titties. in between, we have tribes of little-known politicians, 'directors', and 'chief executives', TV stars and hordes of chippy young advocates of this, that and the other, from Dumpy Hens to Digital Britain."
