Ban on Eating Dogs and Cats LIFTED as Not to Offend Asian Immigrants In The UK

Kirsters Baish’s POV| It has been reported by the UK Sun that former DEFRA Secretary Michael Gove made the call to lift a ban on eating dogs and cats.

The Sun explains, “Dog groups persuaded him that it would send a powerful message to South East Asian countries where the practice is still rife, matching a similar law passed in the US last year. But The Sun can reveal that nervous civil servants have stepped in to halt the ground-breaking move. Campaigning Tory MP Giles Watling was told by the MoJ that one of the reasons it acted was that it would be ‘culturally insensitive’ of the Government to dictate to other nations what they should eat.”

Watling spoke to The Sun saying, “Dogs are our companion animals. We do not eat them, and that is a very important message to send to the rest of the world.”

“It’s not culturally insensitive because we’re not telling them what to do – we’re just telling them what we do,” he continued.

“We shouldn’t be worrying about that, so I was surprised that was the MoJ’s objection.”

According to justice officials, it would be hard for the government to enforce the law and the ban as it sits.

Dog meat is currently banned in Germany, Austria, Taiwan, South Australia and Hong Kong.

Summit News reported:

A legal ban on eating dogs and cats in the UK has been blocked over fears it might offend people from South-East Asian countries.

Yes, really.

After a bill was drawn up to make possession of dog or cat meat illegal in the UK, civil servants stepped in to halt the move.

Tory MP Giles Watling was later told that the main reason the Ministry of Justice blocked the bill was over fears it would be seen as “culturally insensitive” to dictate to other countries what they could eat, despite the fact that it would have no impact whatsoever on South-East Asian countries where dog and cat meat is consumed.
