74,000 pledges of support roll in

NEARLY 74,000 pledges of support for our Say Yes to a Public Inquiry campaign have been collected from homes, farms and businesses across the country.

Farmers Weekly and its online site Farmers Weekly Interactive have collected nearly 17,000 signatures, making it the most successful campaign in the magazines history. "We are absolutely delighted that so many people from all walks of life have joined together to take a stand against the government and its many spin doctors," said Farmers Weeklys editor Stephen Howe.
