The Ruddy Duck seems to be responsible for more than breeding indiscriminately in this country. It is now involved with the war in Iraq. According to Councillor Peter Franzen - leader of the opposition in Wigan the only reason for the proposed slaughter of these ducks is to comply with British Government dictats to all Whitehall departments that all requests from the Spanish Government had to be granted wherever possible to reciprocate their support for the war in Iraq. It would appear that one of these dictats is to cull the ruddy duck.
I will leave it up to readers of this blog to form their own opinion about this issue so feel free to leave a comment.
