In their desperate desire to spin today's judgement halting the badger cull Plaid Cymru actually manage to undermine their defence to the first ground of the appeal.
In court they claimed
1) That 'substantially reduce' in section 21(2)(b) of the 1981 Act meant simply a reduction that was 'more than merely minor or trivial'
Lord Justice Pill considered this to be a fair definition. Neither Lady Justice Smith nor Lord Justice Stanley Burnton agreed.
In their insulting press release though they somewhat disingenuously use this to suggest substantial in the usual sense of the term, ie large, not just non-trivial
...Lord Justice Pill recognised that the government's plan for a cull pilot, did demonstrate the prospect of a substantial reduction of the incidence of TB in livestock.
Obviously they know what "substantial" means to most people regardless of their submission to the court.
