Well, give it another couple of tory administrations and I'm sure people will be strip-mining the things after the fracking has been completed. And hey, I've no doubt a profit can be made by turning all those stone circles into gravel for the construction industry.

I mean, they cost money to upkeep... they're nothing more than the geohistorical equivalent of benefit scroungers!

For balance you only have to look at the Labour heartlands of South Wales to see how ancient monuments fare under those administrations. Heads they lose, tails they lose.
