Sorry, can’t do a link but he’s dropped the animal rights legislation he promised in his election campaign. Will try and do a link on my big computer upstairs….

Got to the point I dont believe anything he says until he actually carries through.
Not sure there is anything he has carried through yet.
He seems to be merely talk.

Happy to be shown or proved wrong.

I wanted to beleive him, then I gave him the benefit of the doubt, now...

Here's one link (I'm sure there are others):

I am not convinced they even care about votes any more.

Or else they think we will be swayed by whatever they say in the run up to an can do what they like previous to that.

I thought a retired Tory cabinet member put it very well this morning.
They are presiding over chaos.

So - forget about animal welfare? Disgraceful, but hardly a surprise from this lot. I don't think they're 'presiding' over anything - they've pushed the self-destruct button.

Very disappointing. The pressure groups won’t give up on this.

Dreadful thing to have done.

There is no justification for any live animal export for meat, no justification for the import of dogs either, breeding stock can be much more easily and cheaply transferred with embryos.

Is it pressure from groups within the Party?

He's not very effective, is he.

He needs a nickname. The "I dont get things done" Rishi. But snappier.

Very disappointing indeed. Live animal exports need to be stopped as does no stun slaughter.

I couldn't believe it - terrible decision. That said, pretty much par for the course !
