The Tory with a death wish

As I said before, I am but a simple soul.  But this is asking for trouble:
From the end of this week, Britain's minister for wildlife is sending men to destroy the nests of wild buzzards by blasting them with shotguns. Believe it or not, from Friday, a project will begin to destroy buzzard nests in the interest of protecting pheasant shooting estates, which has been personally sanctioned by Richard Benyon ..., the minister responsible for wildlife protection at the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra).
Do the Tories not know that the RSPB is the most powerful and influential political lobby in the land?
