DEMAND LEGAL RECOGNITION OF ANIMAL SENTIENCE POST-BREXIT
Imagine, for a moment, that the law doesn’t recognise your ability to feel joy, fear, pleasure, or pain – nor your ability to learn, or your consciousness of the world around you.
Unless the UK Government introduces new laws recognising animal sentience before 1 January 2021, that terrifying prospect will face every single one of the UK’s farm animals.
If you live in the UK, please email your MP today. Urge them to use their influence to ensure animals are recognised as sentient beings in post-Brexit legislation.

Is this along the lines of the stuff you are talking about, Lardbeast?
Find out everything you need to know about the horrors of Dutch Drop (aka liquorice or licorice). Your taste buds will never be the same again.www.invadingholland.com
"Your taste buds cry out in objection or fear (or both) as the taste spreads father around your mouth. Suddenly you just want it to end, for the flavor to go away. But even when you spit out the Dutch drop the flavor still remains. It won’t go away. Will it ever go away? Why is this happening? Why? Oh god why?"
Are those the abattoirs the RSPCA won’t go near as it’s a “sensitive matter”?It's a back door attack on one (or two) of the Religions currently practicing in the UK. Not that I'm against having a very close look at some of the 'specialist' abattoirs catering to those specific requirements.
