Time to put an end to UK's trade in live exports
THE trade in live exports continues from the port of Ramsgate against the wishes of the port owners, Thanet District Council, and the general public. This is not democracy.
Following legal proceedings in October, the council was served an injunction that forced it to continue the trade until a judicial review could be undertaken later this month.
Live exports have no place in modern farming. If the farmers can only see profit and don't care about the suffering involved, it is up to the Government to listen to animal welfare societies and the public and end this trade once and for all.
It the farmers wish to export their meat they should do so on the hook, not on the hoof, after they've been slaughtered near home.

The Government, quite rightly, has brought out a bill protecting pet animals. Farm animals deserve the same consideration.
Could I ask the readers to their MP and urge them to ask the Government to end live exports.
