Badger Debate Loss

I am just out of the House of Commons and the Opposition debate against the badger cull. The following three Tweets sum it up (I’ll write more extensively tomorrow):

A) Opposition debate: motion to call off cull defeated by 299 (Gov) to 250 (opposition) in heavily ‘whipped’ debate!

B) Badger debate very emotional but largely ignores best scientific brains which describe cull as ‘crazy’ & ‘mindless’!

C) Badger debate. Many conclude we now have ‘policy-based evidence’ not ‘evidence-based policy’. Thanks for all support!

Peaceful efforts to try and stop the pilot culls going ahead will continue and Born Free, part of Team Badger, will do what it can.

It is not over

Blogging off!
