I have been pretty silent on the E-petition to legalize wild camping but i thought i would have my say after having a good think about it over the last few weeks since i signed the petition.Now i have been keeping update with all that has been said on forums and written in blogs and after a weekend illegal camping which gave me time to reflect one all that has been said.Now it seems that the government has written the prtition off all ready.i have hada reply from my local MP, Joan Ruddock and her reply was that the government would not be looking in to this as it would cost too much time and resources,so thanks for listening and letting democracy work.Also after listening to the lord Smith interview we may have a long wait as it took nearly 100 years to get where we are today.
I would love the government to agree to legalise wild camping as it would be nice not to worry about being moved on in the middle of the night,even though i have only ever been moved on once in nearly 20 years of camping but you do get a feeling of uneae soem times when putting up the tarp even in out of the way places.I dont think it would lead to the mass campig that some people are talking about as i think it will always remain quiet a select hobby.
Anyways go to the site and sign up and lets try to get the government to change its mind.
