Thread: foot and mouth

  1. #1
    Rob Dearnley Guest


    why have the goverment totally over reacted on the foot and mouth?
    you cant fish,play footie,walk or ***** anywhere now!
    its coming upto spring and people dont want to be stuck in the house,the divorce rate will treble!
    where i live,you cant play footie anymore cos all the pitches are on farmland,yet you can walk up the road which has 2 farms either side of the road.its totally ludicrous!
    the disease has already spreads in the wind for christ sake!.pigeons,birds and basically anything can spread the disease.i dont think disinfecting roads and farms will make any difference whatsoever.the bloody wind will still carry it!
    tony blair should stay in doors,its him spreading **** about!!!!

    Do I sense a little bit of frustration?

    I think this has been discussed 'til the cows come home (excuse the poor pun) on other threads.
    Although I don't think anyone has resorted to expletives.

    Complain to your local MP, speak to your local paper, ask the questions...

    Why, when there has been a vaccine available since 1940, wasn't one used?

    Why have all the local abetoirs been subjected to Brussels rulings forcing them to shut and causing the massive, needless movement of livestock?

    Why are certain farms still allowed to move livestock around the country?

    Why are meat suppliers importing produce in from Southern Europe and the Far East?

    Get some answers from these people and maybe it will lead you to make more informed choices in the future.

    correct mate there has been a vaccine since the second world war,but guess what.instead of using the vaccines available,the farmers wait till the animal has got it and then all they do is shoot the animal!the farmers should be shot!
    ive no sympathy for farmers whatsoever,its there fault!
    also im sick of them complaining that there poor.what a load of have got more bloody money than they no wot to do with!thats why he drives a shogun his wife drives a shogun and his 4 kids drive shoguns.they sound realy poor dont they!

    Rob, to be honest i think you are talking about the lord of the manor with all those Shoguns, think of the small timer who rents from this guy and trys to make a living, you don't top yourself when lifes rosy!!!!
    But that said the rest of the situation is becoming duty police officers walking on closed land, and refusing to leave!!! dog owners doing the same and then stating it's fine because their dogs only eat organic food!!! walkers trekking miles down rivers but anglers banned etc etc etc!!
    I am going fishing!! i am going to find a decent stillwater that is open and i'm going to do my thing.....i will act responsibly in as much as i will keep away from farmland but fish i will.
