England: Land of Confusion – Lets Hope the EU Sorts Us Out With Their Responses !

 

29/8/19.

Venus is taking a well deserved (my words not hers) holiday, as she informed on 28/8 – https://worldanimalsvoice.com/2019/08/28/venus-is-taking-a-short-vacation-2/

As you are probably aware, live animal exports is one of the main issues that annoys us both, and so we give it a bit more time than some other things. I (Mark) have been involved / associated with live animal investigation work for over 25 years; have been awarded for it in the past – https://serbiananimalsvoice.com/about-us/ – and am generally deeply bummed off by the suffering that we are still witnessing after all these years.

So, where are we going now with WAV / SAV ?

We will cover many global animal issues as we always have done on this site – nothing changes there. Our dear 751 European Parliament friends (MEP’s) who are supposed to be ‘the heart of democracy in the EU, by representing 500 million citizens, http://www.europarl.europa.eu/about-parliament/en will finally return to work on 2/9/2019.

If only it really was as good as it thinks – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/European_Parliament

Finland will be the Presidential nation for the last 6 months of 2019.

During Jan – June of 2019 it was held by Romania. Although the President, Romania did not enforce existing EU legislation (Reg 1/2005 on the protection of animals during transport) whilst it was in charge ! – remember we covered each day the shipment of 70,000 live sheep from Romania to Iran in temperatures exceeding the maximum allowed by EU Regulations ? – this is why we say above if only it was as good as it thinks; if the President state cannot enforce the rules whilst it is in charge, then who does ?

So, as of next week we (WAV) will be formally writing to the national members of our European Parliament to ask what is being done about Romania ignoring the EU rules on live animals transport why it was the President of the EU ? – we will publish our letter on the site and any excuses; or rather explanations that we get back from our MEPs on the issue.

Further, we will also be following up a lot on the issue of live animal ‘box’ type trailers which are used to transport live animals around the EU. We did a report on the ignorance of the export industry using these trailers several years ago – see it here – https://worldanimalsvoice.com/2019/08/08/england-sealed-box-type-animal-trailers-how-the-industry-dodges-identifying-what-they-transport-and-the-eu-oks-it/

So the EU thinks it is good. We say not that good actually. We will be writing to our MEP’s and asking them some difficult questions; to see how good the system actually is for the EU citizen. We will also ask what is going to be done about the ignorance of the rules for animals; both in the shipment of Romanian sheep to Iran, and also with box trailers.

So, these issue will be priority over the next week or so; we will publish things when they are done and sent.

As very many EU citizens actually think, the EU is really just a ‘land of confusion’ !!

Regards and have a great day;

Mark.
