I am a meat eater but I couldnt eat meat if the animal was previously a pet or indeed had suffered unnecessarily during its slaughter, yes some abattoirs are shown up, but are closed down for their practises, it is different.
Iím not vegetarian or vegan, but I am conscious of the implications of eating animals.
Itís silly for people to believe they have a moral high ground because the animal theyíre eating has been brutally slaughtered in a Ďhumaneí way. The animal is still hung upside down whilst their blood runs out of them into a gutter.
And the truth is nobody truly knows whether that specific animal theyíre eating unnecessarily suffered or not. It could well be argued that them being killed at all is them having unnecessarily suffered.
Itís just funny that peopleís animal welfare activism (and, in a similar vein, child sexual exploitation activism) starts and ends at the mention of Muslims. Kosher slaughter never gets a mention either, funnily enough.
I know that isnít your argument here but thatís the one Iíve been responding to.
I am a believer in asylum in genuine cases, but am sure that for instance with the amount of Albanian young men coming in arenít such seekers, hence they are now saying its because they are gay and persecuted rather than politically in danger. Some may be but far from a majority. For every one false asylum it is one less space for a genuine one.
I appreciate that, but it isnít as simple as they professing that theyíre gay and theyíre immediately granted asylum. The government have guidelines and processes in which they assess asylum applicants and consider their claims.
Does that need to change/reformed? Maybe, but given the requirements as they are now, the research shows that the majority area genuine.
It is also wrong to think that people who have certain views on the future of the UK must be racist, some will be, some wont. We arenít a racist country, we are a country with some racists in its population, name me a country that doesnít have some people like that.
What Iím calling out as racist is what Alicante said; it was blatant racial stereotyping thatís not tolerated here (apparently).
Robleeís responses were more considered, albeit still rather generalising against the majority for the sins of the minority.
If somethingís racist then itís right to call it out as such, in my opinion.
