Have you ever stopped to think how much meat is produced for the pet trade ? Every dog , cat , reptile, fish, etc eats meat . It is estimated that the UK pet population is around 54 million and apart from the odd stick insect they are all omnivorous .
Now if you choose to be vegetarian then that's fine but to impose such a diet on Fido is as inhumane as the process we are discussing .

As far as this topic being aired before , I make no apologies for raising it again . Some things are far to important to overlook as visited before . angry.gif

And then there's the impact t on the countryside.

Stop eating so much meat would be a start.

We have now. My venture into Burglar King was an aberration.

You are not suggesting these burger offerings actually contain meat ? Tried one once and it was an experience never forgotten .

( Other fast food outlets are available but not tested ) wink.gif

Usually Horse I suspect, tried a Burgler King a while ago that passed no resemblance to the Bovine world at all.

I signed a petition on behalf of the equine society to put a stop to this barbaric practice. Horses are being regularly transported for days across Europe, often with no feed or water only to be slaughtered at the end of it. Put a stop to these awful practices. angry.gif

I wonder if it was one of the actors taking part in the show held on the common this weekend.

Did anyone go an see the show. I know one person who went. They reported back that it made them cringe and they left before it finished.

This was years ago, the time of linking hands round the perimeter. 30 years?

Thank you. Both for the post and for your service. On an amusing note, I once observed a very smart lady one Friday afternoon park her car some distance from the gates and after some contortion get changed in her car to emerge in regulation dungarees and smock, quickly look round to check she hadn't been watched then hurry of to join the 'sisters' for a happy weekend of sisterhood and protest.

A pity; nonetheless there are workable autonomous systems already, albeit as far as public highways are concerned in beta testing. West Berkshire's road network will not prresent any problem not already encountered elsewhere.

Semi autonomous, semi autonomous. Do you know how these systems work?

If you are deeply interested this is a reasonable one:-

As usual, particularly if you can get along to the fringe, or get some of the more advanced exhibitors on their own.

Thanks but I'll give it a miss, be full of people trying to sell unworkable EV's rather than look for fresh solutions. And as for low emissions Motorsports! Give me strength! Workable autonomous systems will require a full overhaul of Britains road network, and there's neither the will not the money to do that. Might work in the city but not West berks.

Why does serious debate always end up being hijacked by the playing of the race card ?

Ahh, one of the difficult questions, like, why are we here?, where are we going? and did you remember to switch off the gas?. One of those questions. Still, according to NWN, the only people who will mug us in a west berks car park are west berks council. Reassuring. cool.gif

And there I was earlier defending the rights of a pineapple only to be held out to ridicule , now our home grown fruits are suffering the bigotry of post brexit hysteria . Apparently we share 40% of our DNA which makes us, roughly speaking ,second cousins removed so is it not time we gave them a little respect instead of comparing them to a small garden bird ?

Would you let your daughter marry one though ? Maybe not . wink.gif

Too hard core?

Meanwhile the busker has auditioned for the X factor .

And will probably win. which says a lot about that programn.

Quite, but not really surprising given that for nigh on fourty years every populist wrong in our society has been blamed on 'Europe' making us do something or stopping us putting something right.

Wouldn't be funny if it wasn't true.

The Governor of the Bank of England has fairly recently warned that many more jobs than might be imagined will be automated in the next decade or so, leaving us with an interesting conundrum. How will many of us earn a realistic living? It's quite an interesting excercise to properly analyse our own jobs to see that it is possible.

Now this really is 'old news', when the car industry started to develop robotics for spot welding and for use in spray processes we were all told it was the end of the world, 'in twenty years the only people working will be the ones pushing buttons' was the universal wail! Unemployment has dropped since then, only the feckless, lazy dinosaur types got left behind. The rest of the world adapted.

The BBC isn't the only source of news or comment (thankfully) you need to see and understand rather more about this project.

Funny that, watched it last night, good report on TV, strange organic lump in the driving seat using the controls was a bit odd, but ah yes, realised it was a driver! I know rather more about semi autonomous vehicles than you do my old China.
