One reason to stop the cull

You want ONE reason (there are many more) why this cull should stop?

 

Firstly - look at this Youtube clip recorded from C4 news two nights ago (27th August 2013). You only need watch 10 seconds of Owen Paterson (I'll spare you the chance of bringing up your tea). Watch the head of DEFRA explain the purpose of these culls between 04:30mins and 04:40mins.

Quote from Owen Paterson at 04:30mins:

"No. The purpose of this cull is to show that shooting by trained marksmen under very carefully-controlled circumstances is humane and effective".

Now read this news report from the BBC (taken from the BBC website yesterday, 28th August). Particularly the paragraph preceding the map of the UK.

Missed it?  I've copied and pasted the paragraph for you:

"Farming Minister David Heath admitted in correspondence with Lord Krebs that the cull would not be able to statistically determine either the effectiveness (in terms of badgers removed) or humaneness of controlled shooting".'  

        

 

 So.... On 27th August, the head of DEFRA states that the cull is to demonstrate humaneness and effectiveness.... and less than a  day later, his liberal democrat farming minister stooge writes that this cull can demonstrate neither

 

 

Staggering.

This cull needs to stop and stop now.

And if we can't stop it now, let us remember these repulsive politicians come the next general election and vote them out for good.

They seem to think they are "in power" in Government.

Not the case. They're not even in control, let alone power.

Let's prove it to them.
