Who should take the blame

I’m not sure if the cause of the recent foot & mouth outbreak is good news or bad. It’s good that is has been tracked to the research centres, so it’s definitely contained and isn’t likely to spread further, but it’s equally bad that it was released by someone and should never have happened.

I think farmers do very well to stay in business at all in the UK, it’s certainly not easy, and feel very sorry for them when you hear about cases like this. There are a number of contributing factors to the accident, but it’s still resulted in more problems for our farmers on top of the wet summer making crop yields rather doubtful.
