The Blue Labour idiot has ramped up hatred against immigrants again, some twat has given Rupert Murdoch a Prescott moment, the government has slipped out a load of horrible horrible shite the last couple of days and the media have faithfully concentrated on hackgate instead, and half my party is supporting the badger cull despite there being lots of evidence that it will do knack all good. What is wrong with these people? Why can't they just vaccinate their damn cows? The word vaccination COMES FROM THE LATIN FOR COW for Cthulhu's sake.


I am grumpy, so I am going to watch Black Books because Bernard gives me schadenfreude.

Sounds like you need one.

Agree with every word of your posing, well, apart from our different choices of media, but hey.

Love that you remembered vacca

I hope that "Blue Labour" and "Red Tories" both leave their parties in a strop and form a nasty little bigot-populist party of their own that everyone else can ignore.

Except that it won't be ignored. It'll win the next election by a landslide. Because, basically, it'll be Norsefire (although it won't be called that). I just hope that we somehow manage to render humanity nearly extinct at some point before - or at least, just after - we all happily lock ourselves into the kind of permanent, faceless, unshiftable dictatorship that makes 1984 and Brave New World look like naive visions of Utopia.

God the human race is depressing

What I don't understand is why it is so wicked to cull badgers but apparently OK to cull cows?

Possibly (Anonymous) is thinking of the (one might argue equally ridiculous over-)reaction to the discovery of foot and mouth disease in the odd sheep. But... possibly not :)

yeah, possible. Should've vaccinated heavily for that too, never understood why we didn't.

The letters page of today's Independent contains this relevant note:

I agree with Mrs G E Purser about badgers (letters, 18 July); the debate is focused on the wrong issue. The issue is how TB is transmitted to badgers from cows.

I have believed this for years, but have realised that in this country this must be the case because New Zealand has a growing incidence of TB in cattle and they do not have badgers. The farmers there are demanding that the government research why the incidence is on the rise.

I suggest that we do, also. I fear, like Mrs Purser that will not happen; after all, we have managed to kill all larger predators.
