A Letter To Richard Drax MP Re Animal Sentience

Dear Mr Drax,

It has been bought to my attention that you, along with many of your colleagues, felt it necessary to have a little vote against animal rights. It would seem that you would also, go to some lengths to try and explain that animals feel no pain, no fear and above all else, don’t matter.

I find it disgusting that politics should find it’s way into matters such as this. I for one don’t believe you have any feelings of pain, or emotion. Should that be up for vote too? Could we (a large proportion of your constituency) possibly be allowed to hunt you down and have you torn to shreds by dogs? I by no means, intend that to be a threat, more of the fact that it is sheer lunacy and blood-lusting psychopathy that would lead to someone thinking that is ‘fun’, ‘right’ or ‘necessary’.

I would however, love for you to retract your vote on the “animal rights matter”, and try and regain some self-respect and dignity. I’ve never liked the Conservatives, and it is on these matters that stop me from ever voting for such a heartless and soulless party. Why not focus on the growing poverty issue? Why not focus on helping your fellow person, not trying to take away rights from innocent creatures.

I look forward to your automated email, saying “this is a serious matter and I will look into solving it”, or what ever bollocks you’ve got written down. Perhaps, you could for once reply with your honest views. Maybe you could highlight why you don’t think animals are sentient beings.

Regards

Russell Folley

 

From Doug Troup:

THESE ARE THE MPs who voted the sentient beings part of the bill out and declared that animals have no feelings or emotions and so are incapable of suffering.
