History Repeating Itself? Foot & Mouth to Scupper Election?
The news that the foot and mouth protection zone has been expanded into East Berkshire may well hit Gordon Brown's plans for an October election. The discovery of a new case of foot and mouth last night near Egham will raise worries that more cases are still undiscovered in the area. Foot and Mouth scuppered Tony Blair's plans for an election in May 2001. Is history about to repeat itself? And the irony is, this outbreak was caused by a Government run laboratory which Gordon Brown had failed to fund properly.
