Not enough wassailing is done in this day and age, in my opinion. It's a lost talent, overdue a comeback, and this year I intend to get right back into it. There's no time to lose, either - wassailing is best enjoyed during the festive season, and come late January, a decent wassail is a hard thing to come by.

You'll hear opponents of the cull repeatedly state as fact that there is no scientific basis for a cull and leading scientists don't support the policy. This simply isn't true.
