Congratulations to Uncle John, you have been a warded the rare distinction of being "guest collumnist" for this very well observed piece:
"Daily Telegraph – 02-07-01 http://tinyurl.com/349o4jd
//A rare South American bird which had been living happily in the English countryside has died after the RSPCA made a bungled attempt to rescue it./ - /We recaptured it in a very controlled way and caused it the minimum amount of distress//
(Apart, that is, for the fact that it died)
The printed newspaper item includes the following verbal extrusion by ‘an RSPCA spokesman’ - all in “Quotation marks”
“We do not know what the cause of death was and we will not be holding a post mortem It could have been suffering from some sort of illness before it was rescued by us. We certainly followed all our procedures by the book”

Nanny declining to find out what really happened? [Tick]
Nanny happy that ‘the rules’ were followed? [Tick]
RSPCA apparently believes that animals weighing 90lb (40kg)are a danger to traffic if loose on the road.
I hope they send teams to the New Forest, Wales, and the Lake District to 'cull' the ponies, sheep and cattle."
