If the patient is bleeding to death, first we need to have a stiff drink, then mop up the blood. After that we need to think about the best way to stop the bleeding – it will only take a few hours…………

Oh, and a happy New Year.

Happy New Year to you too, George.

Amazing how much energy Defra can put into 'Not' doing the right thing, and incredible the paper chase involved to ratify their skewed decisions.

One chink appears in February. Along with pre-movement testing of (some) cattle and tabular valuation for reactors, is the elevation of tuberculosis in any mammalian species to 'notifiable' status.

Then we'll see the increasing spillover from the wildlife reservoir into domestic pets, and the badger / cattle loop will be broken.

Bring on the cats! (And dogs, ferrets, pigs, llamas and alpacas)
