I haven't watched it either (and I haven't recorded anything for years Gin - will watch on iView )
But it is getting to be a bit of a yawn. Won't hurry after reading some of the feedback.
The media in their thirst for sensationalist, alarmist stories don't really care if they bring down a whole industry like they nearly did with greyhounds.
They will get the sound technician to add some creepy music in the background while they grossly overstate something to the point what they say is bordering on a lie.
ABC lost all investigative credibility after Greyhounds.
Ok I hit the red button
My whole problem is the hypocrisy.
That myth Steve Coleman from the RSPCA stood there beating his chest at Baird's press conference, prattling on about wastage and his faux outrage all while hiding behind the huge kill rates of the RSPCA.
Yet here we had the RSPCA's Bidda Jones basically shrugging her shoulders saying they don't know where 8000 horses go each year (really?) and that humane euthanasia could be preferable!
The exact same thing the greyhound industry was dragged over the coals for in the court of public opinion (and many on this forum) yet this hasn't even raised a blip - not a peep
They used footage of PV at the Thoroughbred breeders meeting where he told all and sundry that the greyhounds would be banned, trouble was it was 3 months before the announcement. It's never been investigated how or why he knew. The whole thing stinks and hence why I handed my ATC membership back (even told them on the survey why too)
My issue here is not the horses (I'm a realist) and I love the sport but when the horses had an issue (EI) who filled the breach? the dogs, who kept the money coming in? the dogs. Yet when the dogs had an issue we had people like PV quick to dance on the grave. The man is a germ
This will amount to nothing, it won't even make fish & chip wrapping.
