ABSTRACT
The article presents the comments of several farmers on issues surrounding the agricultural sector of Great Britain. The British Prime minister's statement made no mention of those who are locked down in the south east by foot-and-mouth and/or bluetongue restrictions with local markets unable to open for trade. Hill farmers and farmers in the control zone will be getting compensation as it were but for those farmers living further away from the control zones which will have been affected do not seem to be getting any kind of compensation.
