Jeremy Vine Shouldn't Have Been Shamed For Eating A Ham Sandwich - There Are Better Ways To Discuss Meat Consumption
So determined are we to bring others round to our way of thinking that we often ignore the personal upheaval required to make that change happen

By Using Tradition To Justify Bullfighting Boris Johnson Deliberately Ignores The Progress Civilisation Has Made
Tradition is what clothes to wear. What flag to fly. What song to sing or dance to dance. It's a way to bring people together and celebrate only the very best of our history. Tradition is NOT, and will never be, a handy and socially acceptable excuse for a lack of compassion.

In just a few months, Orange Planet Pictures will release a film to reveal the life of a person we believe to be of great significance in 21st Century animal welfare. 'To The Moon and Back' summates the life of Jill Robinson who has worked within China and Vietnam to bring an end to the unimaginable horrors of bear bile farming...

Of course, there are many balanced, intelligent humans who add positively to a conversation. But these rules are for the less-enlightened who flock to any and every site and define themselves through their bottom-dwelling 'contributions'.

New Year is a perfect time for a bit of reflection; after all, it's a time when we quite naturally reset out psychological clocks. But it's certainly not a time to be man-handled in to making big and bold decisions about how we should look or the way we should feel.

The world is a busy place right now - there's a lot going on. And we're all just human so it's an insurmountable task to mentally absorb everything that's happening; good and bad. However, there's a UK wide issue affecting over 1 million people which never ceases to shock me. And it's an issue that most of us never think about, acknowledge or do anything about...

I don't care what the law says - I DO NOT recognise big game hunting as 'legal'. Laws maintain peace and order and shooting a lion for fun does not fall in to that category. In fact, I cannot believe such laws exist in the first place other than to perpetuate a centuries old paradigm that has no place in 21st Century thinking and the subsequent evolution of understanding and reasoning.

There is little more emotive right now that the potential repeal of the fox hunting ban. My position is simple. I'm 100% against fox hunting. But, in the interests of understanding I've tried, with an open mind, to look at the pro-hunting lobby with a view to appreciate their stance.

If we park the notion that eating cat and dog meat is cruel, which it is, we're left with logistics and mechanics of the process. Where do the dogs and cats come from? How are they stored and transported? How are they killed? How are they cooked? Unsurprisingly, the story gets worse.

Irrespective of what the 'fracas' involved, one gets the impression that a certain sector of the BBC has been gunning for Clarkson's head for many years. And why? Because he simply conducts himself onscreen in the same manner as the viewers. By being real. By being himself.

This country has the mother of all problems. Actually, it has a few but for the sake of this piece, I'll stick to just one. And boy, it's sprawling behemoth of an issue. And such is its potency that there's not a person alive who can't deny its existence and can't claim it won't get worse...

Companies placing responsibility in the hands of the public is both bold and precarious. Nowhere is this more evident than in the review sections that gild the product pages of Amazon. Of course, the majority serve as a valuable steer for would-be customers. Many, however, fail to reach even the most basic criteria required.

From May 5th, Animals Asia will convert a bear bile farm in Nanning, China, into a sanctuary following a request by the farm to rescue and care for its 130 bears. Mr Yan Shaohong, General Manager of the bear farm, has described the decision as one fuelled by the desire for the company to get out of the increasingly unpopular and ultimately unprofitable industry.
