'Natural England' recently gave £12,000 to a local farmer for not building a wall.
The 'Rural Payments Agency' became involved. 'Environmental Stewardship Scheme' money had been sent out willy-nilly in connection with something to do with a wall, in a place governed by the 'Peak District National Park Authority'.
No-one had looked to see if the wall had been repaired, or even still existed, before sending out the money.
There was originally a 'Countryside Commission', which changed its name to 'The Countryside Agency', which joined up with 'English Nature', subsequently becoming 'Natural England', and sponsored by the 'Department for the Environment Food and Rural Affairs'.
The thing that all of these unnecessary, superfluous overlapping 'countryside' bureaucratic bodies and quangos have in common is the sheer profligate waste of other people's hard-earned money.
