Robert, it’s not like you to take something I say out of context.

I am in the habit of travelling all over the country in pursuit of my hobby, and as such see what goes on everywhere.

My reference to "gas axes" was not an endorsement, but simply drew attention to the inevitable consequences of barring access to all, or to all but a select few.

Basically, what I have seen elsewhere.

Cwmystwyth has become a bizarre cat and mouse game between the Crown mineral agents and those who feel access is a right, a bizarre game with no overall winners.

EDIT
On second thoughts, maybe the phrase "gas axe" has become a new swear word, like "Kalashnikov" in 1987?
