More Liberal Democrat Betrayal.

Now correct me if I'm wrong but wasn't Peter Black and the Welsh Liberal Democrats the biggest critics of the One Wales Government's decision to plough ahead with a badger cull in Pembrokeshire recently?

But what Peter Black hasn't told us is that HIS Liberal Democrat MP's in Westminster are supporting James Paice the Tory Agricultural Minister to "halt animal welfare initiatives" which includes introducing a badger cull in areas of high bovine TB in England.

This is the front page story of today's Independent under the excellent headline, "The Great Animal Rights Betrayal"

I wonder if Peter Black will have the cheek to try and justify this decision!

True, but it is your party in Wales, with Labour, that is pushing ahead with totally unjustifiable cull. So yes Peter Black should be ashamed of his party in England but so should you of yours in Wales.

It's the policy of the One Wales Government per se so I have nothing to be ashamed of. It's the Lib Dem hypocrisy I'm pointing out. I only wish that vaccinations were proven to prevent the spread of bovine TB but it seems not. Regretful as well is that game birds continue to be bred in cages both in England and Wales. We try to be pragmatic but if scientific expertise suggests that a badger cull is better than vaccinations then so be it.

The NFU, The Countryside Alliance and the CLA are back at the top table in DEFRA obviously.
