I wonder if we will ever get to the truth with this Government.

Was FMD in the country 3 weeks before Feb 20 or 3 months or even 6 months? Why after 30 years did MAFF suddenly feel in need of burn timber. Did the virus escape from a "Government Research Institution?" or did it come from imported meat - illegal or legal? What happens to the thousands of tonnes of uneaten food from incoming airlines that would have originated in any one of hundreds of countries around the world? Is it burnt or fed to pigs?

Are any one of the three inquiries likely to discover the truth? I doubt it.

Perhaps we will have to put our faith in the EU who have suspended payments to the UK Government pending the outcome of an OLAF investigation - something I heard about from Richard North but I don't know what the OLAF is!
