Marlborough Demo

Marlborough Demo - Mama Knows Best!

Angry Wiltshire farmers headed to Marlborough to protest the government’s failure to include food standards in the Agriculture Bill.

Local MP, Danny Kruger, was one of a majority of Conservative MPs to vote against an amendment that would safeguard UK standards, enshrining them in primary legislation.  His mother, Great British Bake-Off’s Prue Leith, disagrees with him, arguing that we must keep our current high standards.  It’s reported she’s given up her Conservative Party membership in protest.

Our lead tractor had a poster of the pair, with the words “Mama Knows Best” emblazoned on it!
