Never before in my life have I written to a member of parliament or any othe jumped up, self-important gobshite, however, tonight I saw a report on 60 Minutes (a show I dont normally watch) regarding the thousands of sheep stuck on a ship in the middle of nowhere that nobody wants. Well, I have written to the minister for agriculture, warrem truss (no capitals due to no respect for the man) asking for some explanation. If you want to write to this man, here is his email address...
Here is the email I sent him...
I am writing to you in response to an article I viewed on 60 Minutes tonight. I was wondering exactly it is you propose to do about the disgraceful situation that was described. Please don't respond with political double speak. I want to know in plain English what you are doing about Livecorp, what measures are being taken to rectify the current situation and what measures are being taken to either end the trade of livestock or improve the conditions under which these unfortunate animals are to be shipped. I would also ask like information regarding your contacts with your counterparts in the receiving countries as to what they intend to do about the abuse these animals are subject to once received.
Your earliest response to this matter will be appreciated.
If he does not get back to me with answers, my next step is to trawl websites like rotten.com and consumptionjunction.com for the bottom of the barrel offensive pictures. My reasoning is this...I am not offended by these pictures, but am by what I saw on TV tonight. He wasnt moved one bit by what was being discussed, so he mught be by pictures that turn stomachs.
I will also be contact the good people at Livecorp, the company responsible for this outrage.
There is no justification in the world for this cruelty.
Thanks for reading my rant.
