How can MP still back a badger cull?
I HAVE seen on Neil Carmichael's website that he continues to argue in favour of a badger cull.
I don't know why I am surprised he still persists in believing killing badgers is the only solution to bovine TB. How much evidence does he need to understand that culling won't work?
Ten years and millions of pounds of scientific research has been spent demonstrating quite clearly that badger culling will not be effective in eradicating bovine TB. I wonder whether he has talked to the scientists (including local scientists who have worked in this field for years).
A vaccine is clearly the answer but when the Coalition Government came to power they cancelled five out of the six vaccine trials set up by the Labour Government. This was a political move as it then allowed the coalition to argue vaccination was only a remote possibility.

But work on producing a vaccine has had a recent scientific breakthrough – researchers at the Animal Health and Veterinary Laboratories Agency have developed a test to differentiate between infected and vaccinated cattle. This would overcome the problems with European bans on beef from vaccinated cattle.
