BBC says foot ‘n’ mouth causes Property Crash

Foot-and-mouth hits house prices

A conspiracy theorists dream and from the BBC as well, if you do a search of google news using the terms 'Pirbright' you can find all sorts of gems especially from offshore newspapers. The virus is apparently the 1967 one licensed for experimentation and 'Pirbright' is less than 3 miles from the infected farm!!! As for house prices being linked to Foot 'n' Mouth then the BBC have finally been revealed as having theirs well and truly in it!

  • Drunk to much beer in the sun this afternoon, story is from 2001 but expect it to be re-run anyway, OOPS apologies all round, not even the BBC would be that blatant or quick off the mark.

    Virus leak causes FMD in southern England – newspaper

    Rest assured, ITAR-TASS New Agency reports as follows;

    05.08.2007, 05.01

    LONDON, August 5 (Itar-Tass) – The source of foot-and-mouth disease found in southern Britain is a U.S. pharmaceutical company, the Mail on Sunday weekly reported.

    British specialists said the strain of food-and-mouth disease found in cattle on a farm in the county of Surry, was similar to the one used at a nearby laboratory.

    The government-funded Institute for Animal Health’s Pirbright Laboratory, which is studying the disease, is located some six kilometers from the affected farm.

    A number of sources reported that it hosted an international drill last month during which live viruses of foot-and-mouth disease were used.

    The virus was detected at one of the Surrey farms last Friday. All the 60 cattle were culled, and authorities have been checking other farms in close proximity.

    As usual ‘international drill’ was involved. We are no longer surpirsed, aren’t we?

    The incubation period of this strain of the virus is three to five days.
