What if this “25-year strategy” isn’t about bovine tuberculosis at all?

What if it is in fact a preliminary land-clearing strategy to pave the way for the installation of fracking rigs?

I have no evidence to support this; it’s just a possibility thrown out by a friend of mine, late last night.

But still, what do you think?

Is anybody in possession of evidence – or able to point to it – that supports (or refutes) that possibility?

Queen legend Brian May has hit out at the Government’s war on badgers today amid reports that a cull is to be expanded across the country.

Animal welfare campaigners fear the animals are going to be targeted in five new areas as ministers ramp up the fight to tackle Bovine Tuberculosis.

Defra is refusing to be drawn on widespread reports that the cull is to be expanded across the West Country next month, with marksmen moving into North and South Devon, North Cornwall, West Dorset and South Herefordshire.

Ministers have set a 25-year goal to make England TB free.

The Queen guitarist last month called on Prime Minister Theresa May and Environment Secretary Andrea Leadsom to re-think the culling strategy which has already seen thousands of badgers culled across West Gloucestershire, West Somerset and Dorset over the past four years.
