ABSTRACT
This article discusses the potential for optimism in farming in Great Britain in 2007. Politician David Milliband wanted farming to prosper from its own efforts and to see the end of all payments to the industry. David Cameron rejected protectionism and challenged farmers to cash in on consumers' growing readiness to buy home-produced food. Both wanted farmers to continue to produce British food for British people.
