The Government must learn lessons from pandemic failure

Posted on: 17th December 2020

Many thanks to our expert panelists at last evening’s Covid “Lessons learned” Webinar. We can see why Conservative Ministers have been so keen to avoid even a quick Public Inquiry so that we can learn important lessons to improve on the UK’s shockingly poor handling of the pandemic and the tens of thousands of avoidable […]

Covid – Government saved by the vaccine?

Posted on: 8th December 2020

What lessons can we learn from the handling of the pandemic in the UK? Has this been a case of NHS and other front-line worker Lions led by donkeys?

Badger cull continues to fail

Posted on: 9th September 2019

The Government’s badger cull was politically motivated, not based on sound science. Seven years on and after the culling of 40,000 badgers that reality remains. I opposed the cull then warning that culling badgers would risk making the problem of bovine TB worse. I helped set up the first community-led Badger vaccination project in West […]
