    I could be wrong but i think shes a bit more down to earth and a bit more clued up on what goes on in the countryside and whats needed for the future for things to succeed than the rest of the royals

    I didn't see the end of the interview, but she's certainly far more forthright than any politician. My wife told me that Tom Heap made a pretty cynical comment about her views after the interview finished.....good old BBC, never fails to reveal its bias on current affairs.

    She made some very sensible comments, stuff that a lot of other farmers are scared to say.
    You shouldn't have to have security to speak truthfully on the subject but you probably do, and she does.
    Good for her.

    I admire her willingness to speak out, even if she does enjoy more protection than most, but I think the emphasis on gassing is rather repeating the mistake of assuming that the best way to tackle the problem is to use just one method.

    Surely what is needed is to remove the badger's special protection and put it on the general list, enabling it to be shot, snared or trapped, with additional licences available for gassing operations?

    Those whose badgers are a problem will get their badgers eradicated, and those who live happily with their badgers will leave them alone, and all at zero cost to the taxpayer.

    Agreed.

    If they became part of the foxers' normal duties the problem would be under control within weeks.
