Summertime & the Living is Very Busy!
The latest news on the milk price front seems to be that government ministers met at the Royal Welsh Show on Monday for talks with farmers & dairy processors. It seems that code of practice for milk contacts is to be drawn up which will be freely negotiated, more transparent & fairer . But apparently this will not be in place to prevent the price drop in August.
An e-petition has been posted on the government website, 'Dairy farmers must be paid more for their milk',
http://epetitions.direct.cov.uk/petition/6424. Please sign to show you support the farmers.
100.000 signatures will mean it will be considered for debate in House of Commons.
Of course today is the start of the Olympics Games. They honestly are not going to have that much impact here...we don't have tv. I might get to see the opening ceremony this evening but as for the Games themselves...well, we just don't have time!!!
