'Plague, Pestilence and the Pursuit of Power'
"The nature of what is uncovered here makes this book a must read for every
single free thinking, freedom loving person on the planet."

A Kent-based research organisation is calling for an independent citizens'
enquiry into the government's handling of the foot and mouth crisis.
Credence Publications has released its interim report into foot and mouth
disease this week, entitled Plague Pestilence and the Pursuit of Power.
Researcher Steven Ransom, whose staff contacted key personnel and
organisations involved in the handling of the crisis, explains the
difficulties many people have with both the government's interpretation and
the handling of the disease:
"The science behind FMD is shoddy, incompetent, inaccurate and bears not one
shred of credibility. For instance, the ELISA foot and mouth test, the only
blood test being used by the authorities at present, can react positively to
common endemic ailments unrelated to foot and mouth. False diagnoses are
inevitable. Moreover, it has long been known that in most cases, FMD is no
worse than a bad cold for an animal, which also sees the animal fully
recover, if tended to with appropriate housing, bedding, basic, inexpensive
medical care and proper nutrition.  Slaughtering these animals is as absurd
as murdering our seven-year-olds for having a runny nose, because we have
decided we're not going to live with the common cold. Fully aware of its
errant position in these matters, the British government has nevertheless
continued with what can only be described as a program of coercion and
terrorism against the British farming industry."
Ransom's co-director Phillip Day argues against the Ministry of Agriculture,
Food and Fisheries' (MAFF) 'virus-on-the-wind' hypothesis - the virus that
sensible science has yet to isolate:
"The notion that 'viral' FMD can perform these kinds of Olympian gymnastics
and feats of teleportation across miles of open countryside is frankly
insulting to the rational, enquiring mind, given the small number of animals
which are actually suffering from the condition. And the authorities don't
believe it either. They confine farmers to their premises for weeks, all the
while allowing MAFF, police, army and government officials, along with an
assortment of untrained, outside contractors to roam freely across the
Whilst intentional entrenched error and scientific bungling are themselves a
serious matter, Ransom's team believes these factors are overshadowed by
evidence of a far more serious nature - the existence of a covert and
dangerously harmful European federalist agenda:
"Our farming heritage is seen as a threat to those wishing to dismantle
British national sovereignty in favour of interdependent European union. Our
evidence suggests that behind closed doors, decisions have been made to rid
an independent Britain and other independent nations of their livestock
industry.... by all means necessary. Swine fever, BSE, more BSE and now foot
and mouth? These so-called 'outbreaks' have provided the perfect reason to
slaughter thousands upon thousands of completely healthy cattle, sheep and
pigs over the years. And it appears the goal to break the back of UK farming
is being achieved. The facts in our report reveal the British and other
governments are colluding in the most abhorrent actions. Most definitely,
there are issues of criminality and treason to answer in the light of the
crippling damage that has been wilfully inflicted upon the British people
and their nation's economic infrastructure."
