"..... I will always remember the words of a friend (he is now the boss of a well-known cruise company) . "Don't worry about the RSPB, we will bung them a few quid through the back door, give them a garden shed to lurk in and all the objections will be withdrawn - they are after money." He was right. With such an understanding of human nature, you probably have to bung him to sit at the Captain's Table."
