Farming leaders in the UK’s International Federation of Agricultural Producers (IFAP) now believe that eco-terrorists were responsible for the spread of foot-and-mouth disease in Great Britain, according to a story on today’s Reuters wire. The revelation came at an international farm conference in Canberra, Australia. Ben Gill, president of Britain’s National Farmers Union, told Reuters: “The logic would be, how can we destroy meat consumption? Discredit it in the public’s eyes by creating health scares. That would make them [meat producers] unprofitable and make them go bankrupt.” Gill has himself been the subject of death threats from animal “rights” groups in the UK.
