Hopefully @chrisloder will be looking for another job come the next election...a complete waste of space in anyone's eyes...but even worse than that, he's actually against certain wildlife conservation measures that are happening in Dorset

1/2 Dorset: The WTSE and PC Claire Dinsdale I emailed out a briefing note to all 82 Dorset councillors recently. Of those that have replied so far, not one of them, (all political complexions), have supported MP Loder's position on the WTSE. @PCCDorset @Simon4NDorset @chrisloder

Wildlife Crime Working Group seeks explanation from Dorset Police about failure to investigate poisoned eagle incident. Well done @WCL_News But why are environmental NGOs having to do this? Where's the @ukwildlifecrime @DefraGovUK @RichardHRBenyon ? raptorpersecutionuk.org/2022…

Defra admit to using "incorrect calculations" and the wrong data in flawed criticism of our peer-reviewed research - which showed that badger culling has had no discernible benefit on bTB in cattle thecanary.co/uk/analysis/202…

Poisoned eagles in south of England feature in The Telegraph. A pretty good piece by @JoeShute although the deaths of these eagles on game-shooting estates in Dorset & Sussex is anything but 'mysterious'. raptorpersecutionuk.org/2022…

Mail on Sunday blames 'vigilantes' for police investigation into alleged wildlife crime on van Cutsem's estate. It's a classic trick - use an unnamed source & chuck dirt at the whistleblowers rather than focus on the alleged offences. #WheresTheGoshawk raptorpersecutionuk.org/2022…

Perhaps we could all vote to give ourselves a two grand a year pay rise, I think that would make a big difference

As an MP are you going to side with the law breaking poisoners of protected birds like your fellow MP @chrisloder Chris Loder MP is doing ? It’s a disgrace . What protection does our diminishing wild life have . @BBCPanorama one for you to investigate ?

Thanks David and yes, @DorsetGreens @WestDorsetLD @SouthDorsetLD @ndorsetlabour @SDorsetLabour I can assure you there is a rich seam of dissatisfaction to be mined in the conservative party MPs of Dorset who appear happy for wildlife to be poisoned in Wessex

4/4 I'm one of your constituents and this incident occurred in your constituency. I'm formally requesting that you ensure that the issues surrounding the death of this bird (and a red kite) are fully investigated. Will you give that undertaking? I have a crime no for the incident

'This product is clearing killing large numbers of birds of prey, so that is a major concern and one we have flagged to the Government.' - Mark Thomas, RSPB Head of Investigations in the Telegraph this weekend.

Yesterday Rob from @Keeptheban_ announced he will be doing a skydive - in a fox suit - to raise funds for a project to expose one of foxhunting's filthiest secrets: cubbing. I'll be talking with him for for a podcast soon, but in the meantime... offtheleash.substack.com/p/a…

Replying to @HuntSabs
@dorsetpolice are you getting this? Other police forces investigate raptor killing & bring prosecutions, but then maybe they are not under instruction from the likes of @chrisloder

Shock as in disgusting and distressing, rather than any degree surprise, because it isn't surprising at all.
