Another concession to the Tories?
Maybe not, because a couple of years ago I wrote about an interview Nick Clegg gave to the rural affairs editor of the Shropshire Star. The paper quoted Nick as saying:
“We are completely open to these trials. You are right - Britain’s fascination with animals is curious to say the least. But this issue needs to go forward, even though plenty of people in the Liberal Democrats do not like this position.”I am afraid that Liberals have never needed encouragement from anyone to court the farming vote.
There are plenty of arguments against a cull of badgers to be found on the Badger Trust site. Or click on the badger's nose (this is not a euphemism).
