Tarka Dal


or why the otter has to die, see here Mr Salter's self-penned puff on his contributions to the Marine Bill, in which he says himself that he saw his role as a member of the bill committee not to help produce a good bill, but to represent angling organisations' interests, so no trawling (geddit?) for a job next year then. We could almost be back in the era of cash for questions, when MPs were bought by vested interests and represented them in Parliament. Mr Salter mentions in passing that otters are BAD CREATURES and should be KILLED, and blows the racist dog-whistle in his mention, yet again, of "Eastern Europeans" who take coarse fish for the pot (which is legal, as he forgets to remind us).

Any thoughts on Grf Rhys Jones call to rescue the waterways ofengland from the likes of Mr Salter?

In my happiest dreams, Mr Salter will now be torn apart by otters, not aging gurkhas.

I like Tarka Dhal. It's like ordinary Dhal, but a little 'otter.

I haven't seen it (Griff - that was my dad's name too) but so far it sounds good

It was man who killed the otter, but not necessarily through hunting. More like the destruction of habitat, and as MS says, there's no point in reintroducing them if the habitat is still naff.
Anon,1149, why would the waterways need rescuing from MS? It's anglers that are saving them, and the only ones bothered when there's pollution.
