Brian May Day Badger flash mob didn’t actually include Brian May

Brian May, dressed as a badger, with a black stripe in his hair, dancing to YouTube hit the Badger song, outside the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA). It was a sight too good to miss. May’s stunt, timed for today (May Day, of  course, as well as the day before the local government elections) was part of a campaign to urge the government to drop its badger culling policy. So we raced down to Westminster and waited breathlessly outside DEFRA’s offices for a sighting of a 6ft tall badger with frizzy hair, possibly playing air guitar. May never turned up. Instead, onlookers were treated to a dance routine by anti-cull campaigners dressed as badgers. And the king rodent? Rumour has it he’d got stuck in a tube tunnel. Rebecca Taylor

No Brian for badgers.
