Will Simon Barnes stick to his guns?

Seems Simon Barnes, chief sports writer and countryside columnist at The Times, is firmly on the side of the bunny huggers.

Approached by Merlin Unwin about reviewing some of their excellent books, he responded: "Thanks for being in touch, but you have missed your target here. I am not impressed by people who go shooting."

But what about non-shooting books like Rural England? "Damned by association with shooting, I'm afraid," he replied.

I trust Barnes will be turning his back on the RSPB then, now that they have come clean about shooting foxes.
