I don't think that we will ever see an end to horse racing, as it is deeply embedded in British Culture, however we can certainly bring attention to improvements which so desperately need to be made.

If you grew up in the 1970s and 1980s like I did, that first school trip may have been a day out at the zoo. Close your eyes and remember just how exhilarating it was to see wild animals in the flesh - to watch them, hear them and even to smell them.

David Cameron has done his best to make many things fashionable since becoming PM. Who'd have thought it would be U-Turns that took off as the trend de jour? So of-the-moment, even comedians are adding them to their box of tricks.
