Stephen Fry just* said "So we could eradicate the tsetse fly, which would a good thing"
Errr. No.
Apart from the general bad idea of eradicating anything because of it necessity to the ecosystem, the tsetse preserves the African bush
Cattle can't be grazed in the tsetse belts, as they don't have the immunity built up over millennia that African fauna have.
Cattle destroy veldt and other natural habitats, as well as cattle farmers destroying bush and scrub to replace it with grassland for their cattle herds
Eradicating the tsetse would allow this destruction to spread over a much wider area

I dunno -- how many times do I have to say -- we don't do VI, just QI...
