Harperites Catch Boing Boings Attention.........

Tories torch and dump centuries of priceless, irreplaceable environmental archives

An irreplaceable, 50-volume collection of logs from HMS Challenger's 19th century expedition went to the landfill, taking with them the crucial observations of marine life, fish stocks and fisheries of the age.

This government has no appreciation for our history anyway. Its an expense
not an investment in who we are didn't you know that? This government will
