Is this going to apply to all the countries that supply meat to the food chains?
If we are to believe that it is about animal welfare then every animal should be slaughtered in the same way in our country and no exceptions this includes halal slaughterhouses. If you have ever seen a cow killed by this method you would be appalled by the distress this causes to the animal and I am sorry if this offend but no animal should have to suffer this.
The meat could be shipped in from other countries that do support this.
I couldn't agree more. I am sure we would all like to give more money to overseas charities but we all have to live within our means. It saddens me to see the unrest our government are creating in this country by their irresponsible mishandling of our money.
Would you take out a bank loan to support a charity if you were having to live on the bread line????
This is in effect what the government are doing!!!!!
feel the government's irresponsible actions are creating prejudice within our country. You cannot blame the people who are coming to the UK by the droves it is the system that needs to be altered. We must be the laughing stock of Europe. People wouldn't come here if they had to have proof a guaranteed income from a job or be able to financially support themselves and their family for a set period of say 12 months when their situation would be reviewed. I think this should apply to all the countries within the EEC and then there would be no conflict!!!! I also think the refugees should be shared out equally between the EEC this would be a much fairer system. This country is on the edge of financial disaster and this system is putting an extreme burden on the taxpayers of this country and is breeding resentment.
