I mean, if this isn’t political lobbying against the government, what is?
The RSPCA has called for ‘badger-friendly’ labels on milk and yogurt so consumers can choose dairy products that do not come from farms taking part in the controversial badger cull.
He said the labels could be displayed on dairy products that are guaranteed not to be from farms where the cull is being carried out.
The label would work in the same way that ‘dolphin friendly’ tuna guarantees the meat is not from fisheries where dolphins are killed in the nets alongside tuna.
“Milk drinkers may wish to support [farmers not taking part in the cull] and reject the produce of [those that do]. Retailers and producers should make ‘badger friendly’ milk and meat available as they do ‘dolphin friendly’ tuna,” he said in a letter to the Daily Telegraph.
And do ‘milk drinkers’ wish to support it?
Campaigners have been calling for a petition for badger-friendly milk labels at 38 Degrees but so far only gained 8 votes.
I guess we know the answer to that, then.
And I’d like to know the answer to when a ‘charity’ stops being a true charity, and becomes a partisan political lobbying organisation.
