I have no idea why Hilary Benn seemed surprised that his senior civil servants at DEFRA have been pondering why Britain has an agricultural industry, and whether they can close it down. Clearly he hasn’t been exposed to them for long enough. Rural Britain knows that DEFRA is a hopeless basket case. Public servants? You must be joking.

I called myself wilks when I first started blogging. The idea was that it would afford a measure of anonymity. For much the same reason, there was no photo. Times change, hence the photo, but I decided that even when I changed the blog’s title at the start of 2009, I should remain wilks. View all posts by wilks
