Route Change - Boycott Wales!

With the Welsh Assembly proposing pushing ahead with a Badger Cull in Pembrokeshire the only response I can think of it to boycott everything Welsh. The cull is based on the assumption that Badgers transmit TB to cattle and ignores the fact that cattle are routinely kept in overcrowded conditions, indoors for 6 months of the year which is much more conducive to spreading disease than being in fields that badgers may also have been in. This is before being turned out for the summer into fields that have previously been sprayed with the waste products of the previously mentioned indoors cows.
So for now my Glyde Around Britain route will be replanned following the English side of the Border up through the Welsh Marches and keeping my Tourist Pounds in the land of the free (and live) Badger.

  2. hi glyde,
    we need you in Pembrokeshire! Come and visit us and put some posters up and spread your opinion about - attach a sticker to your bike maybe. Staying away won't help, the best thing is to come and complain loudly!

  3. A Pro-badger tour - sounds like a much better plan! Any chance of a list of supporting businesses/accommodation so I can be sure to support the supporters???
