Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - OPINION -

SO, the pub­lic have been scammed once again.

In­stead of gen­uine hon­esty and com­mon sense, we are now to see an in­de­pen­dent watch­dog set up to mon­i­tor politi­cians’ ex­penses.

What a great idea – but at what cost.

Let me guess, the de­part­ment will prob­a­bly have a staff of at least five cost­ing the tax­payer at a guess $1 mil­lion per an­num to cover salaries, su­per, an­nual leave etc. A fig­ure prob­a­bly much greater than the cur­rent rort. GEOFF FULLER, South Yun­derup.

Not only are they taken from their moth­ers, these poor de­fence­less, fright­ened lambs have their throats cut, their bodies dis­mem­bered, and cooked, their flesh ripped from their bones and their bones tossed into the garbage bin as if their lives meant noth­ing.

I am so per­plexed as to why no one gives a thought to the thou­sands of an­i­mals dy­ing for the sake of hu­mans who can quite eas­ily sur­vive on a plant base diet.

Hu­mans eat too many an­i­mals and to have an ad­vert pro­mot­ing eat­ing more is an ab­so­lute dis­grace; not only bad for hu­mans but most of all an­i­mals and the en­vi­ron­ment.

“If you could live happy and healthy lives with­out harm­ing oth­ers why wouldn't we?” Edgar's Mis­sion. J. SMITH, Glen­dalough.
