Thank you to the people (and dogs) of Glasgow’s Parkhead for their support during our demo at David Linden MP’s surgery yesterday.
Linden’s a big supporter of live exports and has spoken on behalf of the SNP against any ban.
Scotland for Animals’ Spokesman John Patrick discussed the issue with him outside. After detailing the flaws and errors in the MPs position and statements, and linden apparently accepting these, John asked him directly if he would now drop his opposition to a ban on live exports.
This goes to the heart of everything that’s wrong with the political class and those who are supposed to represent us. It seems principle and moral mettle is readily heaved out the window in favour of career and party.
Regardless of party affiliation or none, every one of them need to be exposed and held accountable.
It can’t go on.
Keep your MPs replies coming, and let us know if you want to plan a demo in your area.
