The right to roam

June 20th, 2009 | by Nick |

Guardian editorial on the the right to roam. “Like the minimum wage, the right to roam was bitterly opposed in advance but has since caused barely a murmur of dissent….there are worrying signs that people who live in towns now feel divorced from rural life, uncertain what to do and where to go. The danger is that it is a short step from losing interest to losing the countryside itself.”
