The author reflects on the relationship between British farmers and banks. He argues that as banks become less numerous through takeovers and amalgamation, they are also likely to become more choosy about whom they will lend to. He claims that the financial crisis is forcing farmers to establish a positive relationship with banks as banks will demand a return to trusting and open business relationships. The author also states that Prime Minister Gordon Brown will keep on going on about responsible entrepreneurship.
