ABSTRACT
The article reports on the potential rise of conflicts in Great Britain due to the failure by the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (DEFRA) to issue a compensation package for Scottish and Welsh farmers affected by the foot-and-mouth outbreak. Farmers north of the border enduring sheep trade meltdown are now poised to take to the streets of London and Edinburgh if a comprehensive compensation package from the British government is not announced within days.
