Plans will be revealed by the government this week that could result in the biggest sale of public land in England since World War II.

It would see the responsibility for managing huge swathes of woodland and forest pass from the state into private hands. Scotland and Wales have already ruled out privatisation of their woodland.

One hundred leading public figures have signed a letter in the Sunday Telegraph opposing the sale.

They're Going to sell off Woodland to Sort the defecit England has Accumulated, Now i can see this going very badly, For A start its most probably going to Decrease the Value of the Land My familly owns And Opens Up to the Possibility of large Areas of woodland been removed to allow Space for yet more supermarkets or private Companies, Also a lot of ancient Woodland will be under threat of removal

This sucks, it's typical of the conservative government to either sell off or privatise everything

This reeks of the kind of arrogance which public servants are increasingly acting out.
There is no way the goverment should ever have the rights to sell off into private hands,the woodlands of our nations.
In this new CO2 rich atmosphere which the goverments are constantly telling us is getting worse by the year
These woodlands, and all green spaces, have become vital to ur suvival.
It is well understood by science, that the production of oxygen, and the fixing of carbon dioxide, is more efficiently, and cheaply done by the worlds forests, and other flora, than anything we could possibly make or invent or chemtrail.
This alone if we were faithfully planting,would fix our imbalance.
Replacing the forests of earth is priority one, when starting out on a course to live within the parameters which nature sets on all species.
The deforestation of the planet must be slowed to a stop,and the strategy for construction, and the other uses of trees,en masse,and we must replace the use of wood with cleaner greener products which will be better, and more durable, as well as warmer, and even put electricity into our homes as well.
Trees can go a long way towards saving the air we breathe if we encourage their proliferation world wide.

Bizarre system isnt it?

The Oligarchs control the government. They then order the government to borrow and generate incredible amounts of debt and interest for the private central banks, resulting in government bankruptcy.

The Oligarchs then tell the government to sell public State owned lands so that those same Oligarchs can purchase it.

If you watch Money Masters, they document how they bankers admitted to causing the Great Depression. They also provide referenced sources where the bankers openly discussed ways in which to prolong the depression so that they could continue to buy private property "for pennies on the dollar".

Why is this bad? Doesn't this mean anyone can have a chance to buy it?

Yes, but it also means anyone can have the chance to tear it down as well

I wish I had the money to buy it all.
then keep it safe.
but the government can take back land any time it likes.

I hate that a governmental party can make money for them on a short term.
by selling land and company's. like the post office.
then the next government will not have the same money.
and nothing left to sell!!!!
are government are selling every thing so they look good.
but when it is ALL privet. all gone.
they will have to put tax up 10,000%
or more. and why?
if its all privet. we should not pay them..
