Too hasty?

Written by  The Hound

This old mutt mentioned a couple of issues back about the appointment of a new head of the M. bovis programme – former ex-fisheries manager Stuart Anderson.

In said column, it was hoped that farmers dealing with the new M. bovis boss will have a better experience than with previous boss Geoff Gwyn.

However, your old mate was contacted by a concerned fisherman who has had dealings with Stuart Anderson acting in his previous role as director of fisheries management.

To say the Hound’s informant was less than complimentary would be an understatement.

“Those in the farming industry have my sympathies. An archetype of the capricious and vindictive brotherhood is heading your way,” was one of the few repeatable comments that the fired-up fisherman gave to yours truly.

Let’s hope the Hound was not too hasty of a better time for farmers dealing with MPI.
