Badger Principles

Just so I don’t forget when the next election comes around. I will not vote for any political party that supports the eradication of 80% of the badgers in the South-West of England, where I happen to live. This will be regardless of any other agenda that party may have, because I feel strongly about eradicating a species and suspect I’m not alone.

Eradication of an indigenous species is a disturbing solution to bovine TB even if it was scientifically proven to be effective. As the scientific evidence says it wouldn’t be effective, I’m stunned that the current Labour government would propose doing it. A vote winner it is not.
