Birmingham media get mistletoe story right…

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jonathan Briggs @ 9:15 pm

I’ve often had reason to rant at the national media for their apparent inability to grasp mistletoe crop v. conservation issues – so it’s good to see that the Sunday Mercury, a local paper in Birmingham, got it right last weekend.  Online story is here, or you can read the print version in the photo (click to enlarge).  I particularly like the quote from me:

“It’s utter b****cks – and you can quote me,” said Midlands mistletoe expert Jonathan Briggs.

Now that’s what I call a good quote!

So, come on Telegraph, Guardian, Independent, Times, Mail etc – if the Sunday Mercury can get this right why can’t you?

Thanks to Dale Martin of dmphotos (who took that pic of me in my wonderfully warm hat) for drawing my attention to the piece.
