It seems that the recent outbreak of Foot and Mouth disease in England was due to at best incompetance on behalf of the Pirbright government facility and at worst a deliberate case of bio-terrorism by the said facility and American vaccine maker Merial Animal Health. Already high ranking officials are starting make rumbling noises about a possible leak due to 'animal rights' activists. But how an activist could get access and clearence to a level 4 bio-weapons facility that also houses anthrax and ebola and is protected by armed guards of the Ministry of Defence Police and the Military Provost Guard Service is unclear.
Why would an activist want to kill millions of cows it just does not add up. Who gains to benifit from a new outbreak of Foot and Mouth disease? Meriel Animal Health would certainly benifit from a renewed rush of vaccinations in this new debarcle.
Interesting to note that immediately before the this latest outbreak was made public a drill was taking place at Pirbright facility using live viruses in a scenario which mirrors the current events according to Patricia Doyle, PhD.
It is hard to swallow that corporate/government interest would further terrorize an already decimated rural society, but nothing really surprises me anymore from this government.
