Brian May calls for a cultural boycott

The Cameron government plan to shoot badgers to death in order to make cows healthier is, like most ideas coming from the Tories, wrong-headed, and you can't but be impressed with Brian May's tireless work against the decision.

But it slides into parody with the reports that May is calling for a cultural boycott of areas culling the mammals:

Launching the ‘Team Badger’ campaign, the RSPCA and others urged people not to visit the tourist hot spots where badgers are being killed and to boycott dairy products made in those areas.
The problem with cultural boycotts, Brian, is that sometimes high-profile acts break them, and then spend the rest of their lives trying to justify, say, ignoring a UN cultural boycott of Apartheid South Africa.

Has Brian just proved that he thinks badgers are more important than black people?!
