Me looking brave before taking to the air (and the wing) of the plane. Wow, it was cold !! But the whole experience was totally exhilarating.

Computers and the internet are amazing things. One of my concerns with putting together this site was that it could remain current, yet with all my travelling I've often much to say, but little time to say it. Years ago when reading the news it would take me days on end to reply to the kind letters people sent. Now, with the magic of the modern age, I can keep you up to date with what I'm doing and other events in my life.

PETITION AGAINST THE EXPORT OF LIVE ANIMALS - uk/petitions/200205

Date: 6th February 2018

Dear Friends

Some months ago I was one of the first signatories to a Petition to end the live export of animals - in good company with Selina Scott and Joanna Lumley.

On Monday there was a meeting in the Jubilee Room at Westminster and we heard from many speakers - Selina spoke for the Campaign, the head of the RSPCA addressed us, and we heard from people who actually police the Live Exports going out mostly from Ramsgate on small boats. The Ferry Companies stopped this trade in 2007.

I was surprised to learn that it isn’t the farmer who benefits by this cruel trade but the greedy middle man. Apparently a farmer gets £75 a head for a sheep - but when exported to Europe the middleman charges £150. I don’t think I need to tell you about the conditions these poor animals endure (including horses, donkeys, cows and baby calves) sometimes journeys of 16 hours crammed into lorries with no water. And of course there is the export for the Halal Market (least said about that the better or I’ll be done for PC).

I am not a vegetarian although I do not eat much meat but I believe that animals deserve to be raised humanely and slaughtered in like fashion.

We have 75,000  signatures so far and only till the end of February to get the other 25,000 to reach the magic number whereby there has to be a Debate in Parliament.

Please sign the petition and, if possible, pass on this email to your friends and family.

Love and thanks for reading.
