Why is Brian selling land.

Hungary was worth £0.75m. 300 acres is worth £3m (nearly). Flog BL
shares and keep the land and fill the gap with a loan.

And why do both Home Farm and Brookfield have telehandlers - specialist
enough that I doubt either farm has one on hand - the estate maybe?

Do they, I hadn't noticed. But some form of telescopic lifting gear,
possibly as a tractor attachment, would be useful on many farms. The chap
who over-wintered his beasts in the barns attached to the farmhouse we
rented for a year used one to shift big bales of hay from the storage barn
to the cattle shed. As well as, presumably, for loading the trailer with
said bales in the hay fields.

I thought he was expecting a bill of over 1m (and that's before any
fine, I think).

I'm still not sure who owns what, anyway - and/or who's liable for the
costs of the cleanup (and fines if any): Brian himself, BL, or Home Farm
enterprises or whatever it (the thing they "all" have shares in and
voted Brian out of control of) is called.

Does Brian have that many BL shares?

I haven't actually heard that word, and I _have_ been listening.

When Brian spoke to Adam he was talking of over £2m with a large fine.
But even so BL shares must be worth a lot of money (we know Damara owns
more than half and Brian held a pretty large chunk of shares or he would
not be considered for Chairman).

The telehandler at Brookfield was broken so David wanted to borrow the
Home Farm one. I suppose they are more common than I might have thought
now that typically bales are larger - but I can remember a couple of
years ago I am sure David was making a fuss of his small bales as being
more suitable.

The one used for putting a bale in the cattle shed had just a single
'prong' so, having lowered it to the floor, the bale could be unrolled like
a ribbon - clever I thought.

I haven't actually heard that word, and I _have_ been listening.
I have come across it in the last 48 hours and I googled it but have
forgotten what the result was or where I saw or heard it. And I am
currently listening, but on the iplayer in the evening or next day.

I heard it mentioned but wondered if I had misheard and that they were
saying ‘terra handler’ which would also make sense when moving gravel or
earth etc.

Who needs farm hands when such teledildonics are no longer an expensive
luxury?
