I did a double take when he heard that the European Commission was proposing that anyone with a Green Cert would be allowed to travel around Europe.

He had visions of farmers, young and old, calling on their mothers to find their farming qualifications at the back of long-forgotten record drawers that hadn’t been opened since the last millennium.

The Dealer even began to wonder which back pocket his own Green Cert was shoved down, before he copped that “Green Cert” to the crowd in Brussels meant a very different thing in terms of a COVID-19 vaccination and unfortunately, the time the farm relief lad accidentally on purpose jabbed me with the lepto shot probably won’t count.
