Can I speak directly to everyone and anyone who reads this Blog, I realize that some people quite inexplicably don't seem to like me and even more inexplicably disagree with things I say and causes I support, all part of life's rich tapestry I suppose. I am writing to you all in a cause which everyone of every political persuasion can hopefully support. Next Thursday Parliament will vote on whether to ban the use of wild animals in circuses. Like most of the public, we want the practice of wild animals travelling around the country for entertainment banned. They can't speak for themselves, so we must act for these majestic wild animals. And time is running out. There is an easy way for you to help. Ask your friends to pledge to support the banning of using wild animals in circuses, click here now. It will take only a few minutes https://www.taomail.co.uk/labour-emails/lnk/101091/2688/2688/2/939/195601/50a78ecaedf90199b89f76bd99c23891/6119/>
After a year of delay the Tory-led Government still hasn't banned the use of wild animals in circuses. At first they said that it was because of a European court case – but it didn't exist. And now they're proposing a licensing scheme for wild animals in circuses – a proposal rejected by the RSPCA and British Veterinary Association on animal welfare grounds. We have to support a total ban, and we only have a week to make it happen.
94% of the British public want to see a ban – why hasn't the Tory-led Government taken action? Get your friends involved today– we only have a week to act
We've made a difference before with BacktheBan.com – we can't waste this opportunity to stop wild animals like lions, tigers, camels and bears being kept in cramped cages, and forced to perform.
There are seven days to act – make sure you play your part today – click here to ask your friends to support the ban on using wild animals in circuses
The vote in Parliament next Thursday is not whipped – it is a backbench sponsored debate – so all MPs can have their say about a ban.
