Not that I am a big fan of farmers or the countryside alliance types (and that is being generous) but I think it would be the best solution all round. Ooo ar. No, because the sheer amount of fuss made over FM clobbered the tourist industry- possibly for years, although this is admittely anecdotal and predictive- whereas if we'd quietly vaccinated, accepted no meat exports for a year Or until there were no vaccinated or infected animals left in the UK, whichever came later. ...and then let the farming industry get back on its feet, we'd not have had to kill *three million* animals, and poison water, and close footpaths, and the tourist industry wouldn't have suffered the way it has over the last couple of months. So, why insist on the 'slaughter' bit? Good idea, maybe a polite memo should have been sent to the all the tabloids asking them to keep quiet about it :-)

Somewhat unlikely. Matthew is in England, it's Bill Bradford (him whose message I forwarded) that's in TX. IIRC, Bill has a couple of Vaxen he wants to get rid of to free up some space if that's the sort of thing that floats your boat. -- David Cantrell | [EMAIL PROTECTED] | http://www.cantrell.org.uk/david/ Rip, Mix, Burn, unless you're using our most advanced operating system in the world which we decided to release incomplete just for a laugh
