bilby commented on the word squalid little fire-sale
"If the government believed its own rhetoric, the disposal of the forest estate would help to restore a genuine public ownership of the land, lost through centuries of dispossession and enclosure. Instead it looks like just another squalid little fire-sale, liquidating our common treasury to release some emergency cash."
