IM not a true farmer, but I am greatly upset with this stupid slaughter of healthy stock outwith infected areas.
It must be stopped ASAP.
I will make my way to London on Thursday and try to infect Blair with some bloody common sense, and ask him to forget about his sodding election -whats the rush for, so that we see their shallow faces smile at another gravy train ?
My heart goes out to all you poor farmers who have seen a lifetime of work fall to the ground because of this blasted government. How the Labour government can survive after this, only the devil knows.
