A legal ban on eating dogs has been blocked by Justice Ministry bureaucrats in the UK for fear of offending cultural sensitivities.
Michael Grove, former DEFRA Secretary, pushed for the new law that would make possession of dog and cat meat a criminal offence in the UK with the hope that it would send a powerful message to South-East Asian countries where the practice is still rife.
According to The Sun, environment ministers drew up a new criminal offence in Britain for possessing dog and cat meat, however, “nervous civil servants” stopped the “ground-breaking move” because it would be “culturally insensitive” to people from other nations who eat dogs.
MP Giles Watling responded to the decision 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.”
It’s estimated that in China alone more than 10 million dogs and 4 million cats are slaughtered for the meat trade each and every year. Worldwide, that figure is thought to be above 30 million.
Once again we see, the new political position of the day is absolute appeasement to any culture other than Western culture. And that’s what ‘multiculturalism’ boils down to – ensuring the survival of every other culture and their practices, except our own.
As Mark Steyn has aptly said: “If the purpose of your culture is to celebrate multi-culture, you’re in effect saying that our bedrock belief is that we believe in everything, which is the same thing as saying we believe in nothing. Our core value is that we have no core values.”
And that just about sums up the vast majority of Western politicians today.
