Tom Langtons Supreme Court permission application in the battle against Supplementary Badger Culling has been refused. However, we still need to achieve our target as funding is needed to complete the legal work informed by this decision.

As you know, following the Appeal Court (CoA) finding against Tom Langton, supported by the Badger Crowd, and after careful and lengthy discussion with the legal team, Tom Langton lodged a petition with the Supreme Court. This sought permission to challenge the decision of the CoA not to overturn judgements made by Sir Ross Cranston in 2018. Unfortunately we have now heard that this has been refused.

This step had been taken because of a genuine belief that Sir Ross Cranston and the CoA had erred.

The mounting evidence is now that any benefit in the fight against bovine tuberculosis by culling or vaccination will never be directly measurable and is highly unlikely either to exist or to make any meaningful contribution to bTB control. The legal wheels were put in motion in the hope that if culling was not cancelled by other means then this was a further opportunity to prevent its continuation under the flawed supplementary culling policy.

Sincere gratitude is extended to our donors for their continued support. The existing appeal remains open and further donations to this will be appreciated. As we stated before, there are other cases brought by Tom Langton, challenging aspects of the badger cull that have been stayed pending the Supreme Court application. Now that this has been determined these cases will need to be brought to a conclusion.
