of a non-story. The results of the referendum will show that the Swiss people think so,too, and that will be the end of it. Not worth discussing, in my view, even by "our political(sic)correct bunch", whatever that means.

chopping a couple of 'music' stations and reducing web activity.
This is the pklace to start it seems to me.
A few less pages like the above coiuld save a few 'bob'
But of course being the organization it is- like a few others
More money will be expended- save a 'little'

I lost faith in many Animal Rights organisations a very long time ago, when their agendas seemed to harm more that prevent or protect.

Here in the UK we have sufficient legislation for animal rights, regarding cruelty and conditions. Even now the government are talking and possibly going to implement 'owner competence' licenses and tests.

But if you look at animal welfare in the main, most people treat the 'loved ones' better than themselves, except of course the very few, who regard animals only as a perhaps short term commodity for reward or self esteem.

I suppose this might be another bonus for the legal profession, but I would like to see the animal giving evidence regarding the 'crime' ;o)
