Irish Labour Party Votes Against Animal Welfare
Well, the bill against stag hunting on horse was passed last night, no thanks to the Labour Party who always say they are against blood sports and Fine Gael who are a useless party anyway. It's the Labour Party I'm really furious with. Their office waffles on about the wording of the legislation which is pure sophistry as the ISPCA pleaded with them to support this bill as well as the control of dog breeding bill next week (sorry, my mistake in earlier post). Will they actually go that low and vote against a much needed bill to stop the cruel fact of unregulated puppy farming in this nation? If they do, that's it for me and any support for the Labour Party. Of course they are the opposition, but they've always prided themselves on moral stances and the high ground. This is not an issue that should be used to try to pull down or embarrass the government. That's just politicking on the back of unfortunate animals.
