HI all,


Apologies for the group email, however it's just a quick note about the London Marathon.


I'm doing it dressed as a large dolphin - as you do - to raise money for a reserve in the Moray Firth. The dolphin population in the estuary - one of the only resident pods of bottlenose dolphins in Britain - are coming under increased pressure from commercial development, and our government - in their unbounded wisdom - have just decided they're going to allow oil surveying in the region. This goes against their establishment of the estuary as a Special Area of Conservation a few years ago, and is - quite frankly - not cricket.


The marathon will raise money for the Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society to lobby MP's, take the matter to the European Court etc, and stop the seismic testing required for the oil surveying taking place.


I've got a justgving page, so if you feel like donating a few bob to the campaign please click through. Please do feel free to pass the link on as well if you feel the overwhelming urge to do so.


I should hastily point out that Intrusive, whining emails precisely like this one drive me nuts. Just because some tv presenter / approval junkie chap is going through a mid life crisis and needs to do a marathon is no reason why you should spend your precious time and money indulging him. On the other hand if you don't sponsor me it means you actually actively enjoy killing Flipper and her babies, and quite possibly won't go to heaven. A risk worth taking? Your decision......


Anyway, anything would be welcome. Feel free to leave an abusive comment as well if you like.


Here's the link.
