Democracy! What Democracy?

I find it hard to believe that the self-interested National Farmers' Union have persuaded a court Judge to issue an injunction preventing any protest against the Badger culling about to begin in Gloucestershire and Somerset. This has been done on the basis that farmers who are carrying out the cull feel threatened.  Well so they should for signing up to a totally unscientific operation which has been criticised by some of the highest qualified scientists in the land.

This is entirely a political decision carried out as a sop to this Governments' supporters.  I am all for ridding our cattle of Bovine TB but only by means agreed to make a real difference.  This latest decision is a disgrace and a threat to our liberty.  This country should pride itself in the ability to peacefully protest about anything we wish.
