Revoke Article 50 Petition

Brexit
Proof over 4 Million people in just a few days signed a petition and verified their signatures to Revoke Article 50 and remain in the EU.

Brit or Bot?

Update – 15.48 Hours Friday March 22nd 2019:

Conclusions remain unchanged:

  • There is nothing to suggest bots based outside of the UK are impacting on this petition in terms of numbers of signatures and the figures of non-UK signatories are not significant.
  • The data available suggest that signatures are largely genuine and non-domestic signatures are indicative of ex-pats signing the petition.
  • We suspect that efforts may have been made to deny service to the petitions website, preventing users from signing the petition but restrict our view to suspicion in the absence of verified information.
  • It is clear that disinformation is being spread to attempt to discredit this petition by known disinformation actors.
  • Anyone claiming that bots are active either has access to data which isn’t publicly available or is aware or complicit in such activity.

The data was pulled for a third time and the JSON has been converted to…

UK Set to Ban Dog Meat

It is hard to believe it has been six years since we founded the global NoToDogMeat campaign and a charity called World Protection for Dogs and Cats in the Meat Trade. Totally unique a charity with Objects not just to end suffering to dogs and cats but stop them being skinned and blowtorched alive.

When we first campaigned against Yulin and even when I went there to face the horror hardly everyone knew about it. The biggest response we got in London was

“Well we don’t eat dogs here do we? ” What people did not realise was there was actually no law to prevent people from doing that.

Now finally following the example set in the USA the UK is finally debating a bill to Lead By Example and send a message #CrueltyIsNotCool

We have come a long way since my e-petition in 2012 Urging the UK Government to ACT  when they responded to say there was little they can do.

Defra Reveal Plans to Make Selling Puppies Under 8 weeks Old Illegal

Is this the beginning of the end to puppy farming?

New rules to crack down on backstreet breeders

Selling puppies under the age of eight weeks will become illegal under the new plans.

Defra unveils plans to reform dog breeding licensing rules

Tougher dog breeding licensing rules will be introduced as part of a suite of reforms to crack down on ‘backstreet breeders’, the government has confirmed today (2 February).

Selling puppies under the age of eight weeks will become illegal under the new plans, and anyone breeding and selling three or more litters of puppies a year will require a formal licence. ‘Backstreet breeders’ and larger commercial breeders will therefore be required to meet strict welfare criteria in order to get a licence, Defra says.

Breeders who do not adhere to the rules will face an unlimited fine or up to six months in prison.

To update current legislation, anyone trading commercially in pets online will need to be properly licensed. The government’s plans also cover the licensing of pet shops, boarding houses and riding stables, and a single ‘animal activities licence’ will be introduced to improve the process and make enforcement easier.

Pet shops will be required to give buyers written information about the species they buy, including exotic pets, which will provide details of the five welfare needs owners must meet under the Animal Welfare Act.

Defra also urged pet owners to make sure their pet’s microchip is up to date. According to the latest figures, 94 per cent of dogs have been fitted with microchips, nine months after compulsory microchipping of dogs became law.

World Protection for Dogs and Cats in the Meat Trade offers free microchipping to dogs and cats.
