  • A possible hairy situation for the NFU

    Dear oh dear. I can’t image the NFU team are a bunch of happy bunnies at the moment. Having given DEFRA secretary Caroline Spelman a telling off this week for not taking farming seriously enough, this morning it’s emerged government plans for a badger cull to tackle bovine TB are being delayed.

  • Reports of a tiff are greatly exaggerated

    Mark Twain, in the title there. Not sure it worked, but it’s made me feel a bit cultured. Poor old Andrew George though, eh? And I’m not just pitying him for this terrible photo we keep wheeling out on FWi: Having spent years helping the NFU thrash out arguments advocating a supermarket ombudsman...

  • Some badger to love

    Brian May’s back. Fan’s of my last post on the hirsute, badger-loving rocker’s anti-cull campaign will be distraught to know I haven’t got any quality puns this time. Sorry, Steve. I have, however, got this brilliant photo of the Queen guitarist having a debate with some Welsh...

  • Bad(ger) hair day

    I love it when celebs get involved with farming issues. Sometimes I’m impressed that they’re having a go at trying to get people interested in food and the way its produced. I mean, just look at the great work of Nell McAndrew, or Cheggars perhaps… Ok, I lie. I usually get incredibly...
