I've just watched Olly Blogs latest Youtube video and he mentions he attended the Conservative conference NFU fringe meeting where George Eustice was answering questions.
Apparently, GE said that culling pigs could help the industry by reducing the supply and therefore pushing up prices!!!
When asked about the possible shortage of fertiliser he said that it could be a good thing as it would help the country reduce emissions of CO2 and ammonia and we should use more organic fertiliser.
How have we got into a position where the people in charge are so pathetic?

Sadly it's becoming ever more apparent that the only thing that kept Bozo & his cohorts from completely losing track of reality ended the moment Cummings got the push, he may not have come over as someone you'd necessarily take too but he had more sense in his big toe then Johnson & all his yes men put together!

Compared to the idiots that over saw and made new agriculture policies in the EU , sadly we are finding ourselves in much the same boat and possibly worse and in a position with no effective leverage to have any influence on Ag policies

This is where we go badly wrong, we (if the NFU were really a farming union) have more leverage than any other union in this country, we take an extremely large proportion of this countries sewage onto our farms voluntarily when there is hardly any other outlet for it.
If the NFU grew a pair of balls & threatened the Government that unless farmers were treated fairly they would instruct all farmers to refuse to accept sewage sludge onto their farms, this would grind sewage plants to a standstill in days, no government with the eco power there is now could ever contemplate any other means of disposal!
What other union has such power without any cost whatever to it's members?
Hell all the eco nuts would probably endorse it until they realised their own loos could also be in trouble!

We need a realist and Cummings was the only capable man brave enough to run the country.
