Foot and Mouth report out and blames poor maintenance

The report into the foot and mouth outbreak is out and it blames poor maintenance on the pipes handling waste.

It should be noted that these are the responsibility of the Institute of Animal Health, not Merial.

Under funding is probably the cause because people knew the pipe was an issue.

So it's all Gordon Brown's fault!

The BBC has this.

Regrettably DEFRA have not emailed me a copy of both reports as promised. Hmm..

"So it must be suspicious that the Government's two inquiries have stopped short of finding whose viruses got out. When it comes to anything that might incriminate itself, the Government calls the shots.
Looks like the Telegraph agrees too.
Time we had an Oliver Cromwell.

Oliver Cromwell, to parliament:-

"You have sat too long for any good you have been doing lately… Depart, I say; and let us have done with you. In the name of God, go!"

Oh, how true today.

No surprises, but then no real coverage correcting the original spin put out off the record by government ministers. Shoddy behaviour from the government and right across the press!
Just remembering the devastation on the face of one of the farmers who saw his whole livestock culled, this is just another unreported reflection on this governments incompetence.
