The best three opening words of a newspaper article that I've ever seen.
I love that bit from Kevin Witts. He's so keen on badgers that he's the spokesperson for the Devon Badger Group. His zoological knowledge must be far greater than yours or mine. And how does he express his understanding?
'An elderly badger that's losing it a bit'.
For my part, I suspect it's just a bit more outgoing. Any crossing of paths with a badger is likely to see you coming off second best. The assiduous scientific research at Kerosene Oyster Hell shows that badgers are even harder than swans.
Be careful out there.
