THIS IS NOT ACCEPTABLE!!!! Animal Welfare has just taken a backward spiral in the UK! Just another reason #brexit has failed us! Last week the UK government passed a New Clause, currently opposed by the EU for animals NOT TO BE CONSIDERED SENTIMENT, eg they do not have feelings! Last week #carolinelucas of the #greenparty posed for the bill to be transferred within Brexit negotiations, a vote of 313 against vs 295 in favour was passed, A MERE 18 vote difference! I’m sad to be part of the UK on days like this, embarrassed and utterly appalled, who knows where this could lead! See the full story here https://www.bva.co.uk/news-campaigns-and-policy/newsroom/news-releases/bva---rejection-of-animal-sentience-from-brexit-bill-risks-uk-shortfall-on-high-animal-welfare-standards/ Please, animal lovers, please help me stop this, who knows where it could lead! Whether you agree with Brexit or not, this is not the question here, it is whether you believe the decision is right! In 2016 it is estimated that 11m (40% of) households have pets. The pet population stood at around 57 million (PFMA), yet only 608 took part in this vote, please tell me how this is representative?! I will shortly complete a petition for his vote to be reconsidered, please support me in helping #steer #uk #government #intherightdirection ! Please repost, copy this image and share far and wide, #animallovers #igfamily please help me share the word we are not happy with this vote! More info to follow!
