A Response to Princess Anne - You Can't Help Horses by Eating Them

The Princess Royal's argument, which she put forward in a speech to the charity World Horse Welfare, is that people would look after their horses more carefully if they were planning to turn them into steaks and burgers later on. However, in our experience, any animal used for food is much more likely to be treated with disrespect than with respect. Given the regular exposés of mistreated pigs and chickens raised for food, it's absurd to think people would take better care of horses if there were a market for their meat.

When It Comes to Fur, Choose Compassion

Disgraced former MP Mark Oaten attempts to justify the unjustifiable - the cruel killing of animals for their fur - by calling the decision to purchase fur a "personal choice". Some things, of course, are a matter of choice - I still listen to 80s music - some things, however, are simply right or wrong.

It's not just here in the UK that we see a chipping away of personal freedom. The USA has always been proud to consider itself the land of the free, so it is ironic that customer choice seems to have suffered a significant blow in West Hollywood of all places.

Real Men Don't Wear Real Fur

Mimi Bekhechi

Besides the risk of looking like Liberace, there's another reason why men should avoid fur at all costs: cruelty to animals is a real turnoff and isn't going to score you any points with the ladies - or anyone else, for that matter. In fact, according to a recent opinion poll, 95 per cent of British people say that they wouldn't dream of wearing real fur. That's because they know that for the animals trapped in filthy cages on fur farms, who are never allowed to feel the grass beneath their feet or dive into a cool stream...
