Lord Dowding, the Battle of Britain and Animal Welfare
posted by Bodwyn Wook
In this video we hear first about Lord Dowding’s role in the ‘Battle of Britain’. Afterwards we hear two speeches Lord Dowding made in the House of Lords. The first speech (in 1949 – still topical to-day) is about the development of the humane slaughter of animals and how Jews and Muslims, even to-day, opt out of these decent intentions. The second speech (in 1957) is about painful experiments on animals; it remains relevant to-day because the European Union’s new legislation — which will be binding on all member states — will allow scientists to continue to perform severely painful and prolonged experiments on animals.
