What possessed Caroline Spelman to open up the possibility of the privatisation of our forests?
Was there an edict from No.10? Was it her impotent civil servants who'd be told to find something to privatise to help her ailing career? We may never know but in the space of a week a dreadful policy, incoherently presented by Spelman has been binned.
The Tories simply do not have the common touch.
