I share this tweet from Chris Packham, referring to the attack on his property this weekend and the hate he suffers on social media:
Harassment , relentless abuse , intimidation and now arson . And what next . . . ? I will not be cowed , I will not buckle , but can I ask for your help ? If you are an @nationaltrust member please sign to end hunting here and now .https://t.co/UtegRNGfUH pic.twitter.com/lwaZLaO2oG

I have some experience of the internet trolls. I have suffered the threats to self and property. I have massive sympathy for Chris and his courage. As he says, all this has a cost. Those doing the trolling and making the threats want that cost to be felt. I think that criminal. So do they. That's why they seek anonymity when causing harm. But the campaigns do have to go on.
