We must use this moment to apply more pressure than ever to cut the cruelty out of the immigration system
You think you're getting a handle on managing your excessive number of social media accounts, then they start making extra demands of your time. Come on, do the quiz that your mate only got nine out of ten correct answers, it's the hardest quiz, like ever.
As someone who manages a team of professional campaigners and lobbyists working to improve animal welfare, it's always nice
How many times will the perpetrators of animal cruelty get to walk away scot-free before the Government toughens up the law? Personally I'm sick of having to look into the eyes of dogs who have been abused, knowing that the people who have done this will potentially be doing the same to another animal. Stronger penalties are just one way to put an end to this misery, but they are a vital step. It's time to step up and give these animals the justice they deserve.
I've been wracking my brain to work out why anyone would hate a hare. Some might say 'farmers', believing that hares go to work on their crops in the same way that rabbits do, however that's not true. Scientific reports show that the damage hares do to crops is minimal, and they might even have a beneficial effect in some cases.
I was terrified when the kidnappers pounced, my family ran screeching into the trees. My mum tried to free me but didn't know how. I wonder where she is now, was she caught too? My greatest hope is that she isn't chained to a post like me.
The cuts have already come. That "slow pace of welfare cuts" announced in the budget? Not true. Especially for child tax
Social media is being overrun with petitions and protests against the Yulin dog meat festival in south-west China. It is impossible to avoid the sickening pictures of animals being burnt or skinned alive. But why should we care about animals when there are so many atrocities happening around the world?
Election time is here again, the time when big issues such as the economy, the future of the NHS, taxation, immigration and the like are all thrown into the melting pot and packaged up into headlines and soundbites that try to appeal to each and every one of us. But, there's another contentious issue that affects hardly anyone, yet apparently 'divides the nation'.... fox hunting.
A dying breed of self-proclaimed 'foodie' still shamelessly defends its obsession with this torture in a tin, no matter how many videos surface showing ducks and geese in abject misery. But the future for foie gras producers and aficionados is bleak. Even the French, a nation once synonymous with the cruel foodstuff, are turning their backs on foie gras.
