DEFRA waste £50,000, through sheer bloody-mindedness to farmer Ken Jackson


[Referring to DAILY MAIL: Champion bull that was heading for slaughter after testing positive for TB wins a reprieve]

What a sad story – a complete balls-up by DEFRA.

One has to question their competence, when this bill of 50,000 pounds to the tax-payer could have been avoided simply by allowing the enlightened farmer to pay for his own test. Let’s hope they redeem themselves by backing off from the ill-advised ‘Do-it-Yourself’ slaughter of Badgers they are proposing for later in the year.
