An almost unbelievable display of hypocrisy through week as Richard Lochhead MSP was spotted outside Holyrood joining campaigners calling for tougher sentencing for animal cruelty.
Throughout his many years as Cabinet Secretary for Rural Affairs, Food and Environment Lochhead consistently blocked attempts to improve welfare in the meat industry from abattoir CCTV to a ban on unstunned slaughter. We shudder to think the suffering this character and his cohorts have enabled as a result.
This is either a crisis of conscience or rank opportunism. Knowing Lochhead’s record we would suggest it’s the latter.
Please don’t be sucked in by these con-artists.
