This is a documentary, originally produced by UK Column in 2015 but never before uploaded to YouTube, about the 2001 foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) "pandemic" in the UK. Viewer discretion is advised.
We are posting this now because the man who advised then-Prime Minister Tony Blair during this fiasco was, as many will know, Prof. Neil Ferguson of Imperial College—the same man who is driving the current policy of lockdown over Covid-19.
Ferguson was sacked by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) later on during the FMD pandemic, but the damage had been done. Despite this, Ferguson was awarded an Order of the British Empire (OBE) in 2002 for his work during FMD 2001.
