9 Better Ways To Use The £3,350 It Costs To Kill A Badger

Why not put it up in a beautiful hotel? It's cheaper.

Posted on

It costs the coalition government £3,350 to kill each badger as part of its controversial badger cull. But what else could you do with the £3,350?

3. Send a badger for seven nights to this great hotel in Chatham. £999 – loads to spare.

Side point: Since this hotel's in Chatham, the badger could report on next week's Rochester and Strood by-election, where UKIP is expected to win its second MP. The badger could even stick around for the afterparty. Party with Nigel Farage? Who'd say no?
