Journalist gets the beekeeping stereotype all wrong

Back to yesterday's story repeated in today's The Independent about the ruckus in British beekeeping. It began:
For generations, beekeeping has been one of the most genteel of pastimes - a world of flower meadows, village fĂȘtes and white-veiled enthusiasts pottering around, puffing smoke into hives.
What a load of twaddle. As my late uncle used to say: beekeeping is all about sex, violence and daylight robbery.
