THIS weekend I have read with amazement about our Prime Minister, David Cameron’s, appalling opposition to the bill to ban animals from performing in circus’s in the UK.
Thankfully, enough MPs had the sense to vote in favour of the ban which will finally put an end to this barbaric form of so-called entertainment.
Cameron’s opposition to the ban shouldn’t perhaps surprise me though considering he, along with the rest of his Cabinet, are ex-public school boys and girls who will have been brought up with daddy taking part in the local hunt and seeing animals as a form of entertainment, fox or tiger, makes no difference really.
It just astounds me how the Tories in general got in in the first place because, pardon the pun, a leopard never changes its spots.
