Weekend read: The countryside is threatened by sheep

I’m not a particular fan of George Monbiot, though I know that his writing is enjoyed by many people. Yet, I did enjoy one of his columns in The Spectator last month, in which he argued that fluffy white sheep do a huge amount of damage to the environment. Indeed, he claims they’ve done more damage than “all the building that has ever taken place”. Enjoy!
