A comment left by Venus regarding the situation for live animals transported from the EU into Turkey – see our recent post at: https://serbiananimalsvoice.com/2016/07/04/europe-how-much-more-pathetic-can-dg-sante-get-weasel-words-that-mean-nothing/
Here she explains the pathetic reality of the EU.
The ignorance and apathy of the EU, especially as regards the transport of animals, has reached the level of a brutal crime!
-The pregnant cows, which are 29 hours on the road and bring dead calves on the truck, are not an issue for the EU.
-In the past 48 hours with temperatures 36 degrees cross over 100 animal transports cattle the EU’s external border with Turkey , that is not an issue for the EU.
-That the border crossing takes 36 hours for transport to Turkey, with the animals in the burning sun, is not an issue for the EU.
-That at the customs office in Ankara, another truck with pregnant heifers is discovered from Estonia, and all newborn calves come dead on the world, is not an issue for the EU.
This crime justifies the EU in that they can allegedly do nothing about it.
But the truth is different!
There is an excessively high number of EU laws: there are 21,000 of them!!
So many that we wonder, why the European Union must regulate everything down to the smallest detail.
By implementing these standards costs in the amount of 124 billion euros are caused each year, so much does a machine with 25,000 employees.
On the other hand, most of the EU directives are so absurd and unnecessary, that we, the EU citizens ask, why we should pay this apparatus.
1.The prohibition of incandescent light bulbs!
The eco alternative, which came on the market from September 2012: too expensive, toxic, and give off a cold light.
2. The degree of curvature of cucumbers!
The “maximum curvature” may be 10 millimeters to ten centimeters!!
3. The unit size for condoms!!
The European Committee for Standardization has developed a specification for condoms. Result: This may not be shorter than 16 centimeters, the width should not deviate by more than 2 mm from the value!!
4. The Regulation catalog caramel!!
The EU regulation on the import of caramels has 25,911 words. That cannot be true!
5. The right seat for tractor!!!
And so on…
What could come from the films of Buster Keaton, today is a normal European madness.
And the rules for animal transport?
Although the EU has a regulating mania, none appears responsible for the transport of animals!
That’s what they tell us those who sit in the Office of “Animal Health and Welfare”, which are after all professionals, and get an average salary of 25,000 euros per month.
Is no one of those able to read some of the rules for animal transport, and to address the necessary violations, that have been documented by videos in the EU parliament?
Is no one of those able to respect the 1,200,000 signatures of EU citizens for 8hours Animal Rides?
Is none of those able to forget the cucumbers and sweets, and to deal against mobile animal crematoria?
More bizarre as it gets!
We will put all the means therefor, to abolish something that only harms, and not use.
We will abolish the EU.
Dear MEPs, you’d better believe it.
AS THEY SAY AT DG SANTE MEETINGS:
WELL, HOW ABOUT THIS TRUTH !!
