The leader of the British Nationalist Party (BNP) has launched a scathing attack on what he calls the most "real and serious danger that British cows face".
In comments taken from the BNPs website Nick Griffin said that the latest outbreak of foot and mouth can be traced directly to an "infiltration of Muslim cows".
He went on to say that he and his supporters have uncovered a plot by a secret coalition of high ranking "Al Qaeda" leaders and leaders of "Cows against the west", an extremist group of Muslim cows dedicated to the downfall of the western powers.
Mr Griffin claims that he has found evidence which clearly shows that a cow training camp was set up in Pakistan in conjunction with Al Qaeda in the summer of 2003. "Our evidence shows that these cows were given various strains of the foot and mouth virus to distribute among British herd, in an attempt to destroy the British way of life"
Griffin concluded by stating that his party will "continue to fight against immigration, and that his evidence clearly shows that not only are Muslim humans dangerous but so is Muslim livestock"
There has been a mixed response from the leaders of the three political parties. Gordon Brown described Griffin as a "Nob end" and said "what he has said is a load of bol*ocks", Mr Cameron responded by saying "I'm glad he said it and not me" while Ming Campbell responded by saying "can you pass me my horlicks, I've lost my glasses and can't see"
