>I wonder if the former LMers are saying that the hoof and mouth disease
crisis is a moral panic.

Mick Hume (ex-LM leader):

"The UK foot-and-mouth crisis shows how dangerous the obsessive culture of
safety can be. It is now becoming clear that some of the measures imposed
supposedly to contain the foot-and-mouth outbreak are causing far more
damage than the disease itself. "
