Hey, this foot and mouth shit just gets better. Was gonna do a post yesterday about how it's all down to economics. Feeding cattle cheap imported food made from dead animals....blah, blah, blah, but never got round to it due to the important issue of faded rockers and reality TV shows. Anyway back to foot'n'mouth, yeah, it now seems that this latest outbreak can be traced back to a near by research laboratory, where the same strain is being used for a foot'n'mouth vaccine. Ironically prior to and during the 2001 outbreak, no British animals were vaccinated against the disease, and as far as I am aware, (but I maybe wrong) DeFRA are against animals being vaccinated.
