A Councillor in a sleepy English village has claimed that both incoming and outgoing birds must be shot on sight to keep down the migrant population.
Starlings, and other members of their feathered brethren will be shot, and used for the fillings of pies in the new initiative put forward by the town jester Mr Nimby. The aptly named buffoon said: 'These birds come here, and they take our jobs, our seed, our food and give nothing back in return. It is time that we little people from middle England stood up for ourselves and said enough is enough'
Mr Nimby has a three signature petition, signed by Kermit the Frog, Lord Lucan and Kasper Hauser that he intends to take to 10 Downing street.
