Chris Whitty and Patrick Vallance are marking their own homework with their 'independent' report on lockdowns, and no surprises that they omit to highlight any of the glaring failures in the approach they took.

Many have been wondering why the announced Twitter 'amnesty' has not occurred. But the answer is obvious: the European Union vetoed it. The EU now presumes to censor social media 'misinformation' for the whole world.

Ursula von der Leyen recently stated that 100,000 Ukrainian soldiers have been killed, before deleting the tweet. Sceptics claim she let slip the true number of deaths, but more likely is she just got confused.

Live exports-Covent does not want to hear of 'cattle breaking legs!'

Exporters have begun assembling 2,900 cattle for the first live export vessel destined for Libya on Wednesday next.
All breeds except Friesians are being sought for Live export to Libya according to David Hunter of Murphy Hunter International Livestock in Cork.
The Vessel arriving from Ceuta, the Al Mahmoud Express will have 2,900 young dairy bulls loaded from Monday at Waterford port to travel to Tripoli, loading alone may take 48 hours. The sea journey will take 10 days.
Stop live animal exports -respect all beings right to life-go vegan.

The Vessel arriving from Ceuta, the Al Mahmoud Express will have 2,900 young dairy bulls loaded from Monday at Waterford port to travel to Tripoli, loading alone may take 48 hours. The sea journey will take 10 days.
The boat, which has undergone major refurbishment to meet Irish standards, was inspected by Department of Agriculture officials while it was docked in Istanbul, Turkey, last week.

Minister Coveney has repeatedly stressed the importance of any live-shipping venture adhering to the highest animal welfare standards. "It's no joke crossing the Bay of Biscay in January and the last thing I want is reports of cattle breaking legs on their journey to wherever," Mr Coveney said recently.

Treatment of cattle in Muslim Countries.
Cattle that are exported from Ireland to Libya will be subjected to a host of new and frightening environments. Unloading in overseas ports is stressful, with cattle forced to endure many new and/or frightening factors including; extremes of temperature, handling, noises, smells, and painful practices (e.g., tail-twisting, beating). Animals may be separated from their herd and will face these situations alone, often bellowing for their fellow herd members. The slaughter process obviously causes great fear (even terror) and prolonged suffering.
These large animals are not easy to coerce, so slaughterhouse employees use sheer brute force and pain to force the animals to move. These gentle animals have their tendons slashed, their eyes stabbed, and their tails twisted (sometimes broken) before slaughter. These beautiful animals then have their necks bent back and their throats cut whilst fully conscious, and very often take minutes to die.

• Directions; Take the N25 from Waterford / New Ross Road . Go 5 Klms to Luffany roundabout and turn on to N29 [PORT ROAD]
Enquiries phone 0872651720 or 0879394096
• video footage shows acts of unimaginable cruelty being committed against these placid, gentle animals

Disgraceful, shameful. Is it really so bad in Ireland to restart a banned barbaric trade?? Or is it friendly influence of corrupt and greedy EU? Disgusting!

Vegan Ireland: the Vegan Society of Ireland is a rights-based group opposed to all animal use. Vegan Ireland is working in association with the Alliance for Animal Rights in opposition to live exports as a form of animal use (see link below for vigil details).

All exploitation of other animals is a rights violation, so we are not suggesting that this form of use is “worse” than if the animals were killed in Ireland. We are also not suggesting that halal slaughter is necessarily “worse” than what goes on routinely in Irish houses of slaughter. When consumers take a piece of “meat” from their supermarket shelf, or obtain it from any butcher’s shop, they are buying a product of suffering and oppression. We are also not suggesting that "meat" is "worse" for other animals than dairy products or other animal products.

However, there are important animal welfare elements to this resumption in live exports from Ireland.

1. Other animals will be taken to Waterford from all parts of Ireland, increasing the amount of travelling they endure
2. The sea journey alone takes 10 days
3. It takes a long time to load and unload the massive “livestock” transporter, adding to time spent on the ship or waiting in a loading area.
