The sector needs immediate support, which is an issue that we discussed here last week. I can see the lacuna and know it from a business perspective. These are serious times and we need to pony up.

Mr. Dooley is right about the lack of political leadership. It is a shame. This happened in the meat and supermarket industries so we have been left with massive conglomerates and no local connectivity. All of that is a sad loss to the heritage, the life and the very living of the countryside.
