  • Is this the lady who wants to eat horses and gas badgers whose views were given at length on BBC Countryfile? At the same time they invited Dominic Dyer, Chief Exec of the Badger Trust to give his views - and then cancelled Dominic at the last moment! Many will never watch Countryfile again. Shame on the BBC.
