    Thanks.
    How have I "proven I am not interested in a fair debate"?
    How have i not been fair?
    How have the posts been clogging the forum? Too many electrons?
    It's not the pro BSL argument that has been senseless.

    I saw that yesterday. It's a pretty well-written website at least.

    Victoria and NSW and Geelong in particular are contemplating making all Staffordshire Bull Terriers that cannot prove their breed with ANKC papers - restricted. These would be the most popular dog in NSW - so I can't see that going down too well. And I would regard it as "restraint of trade" in the same way that car companies cannot require their brand be serviced at their brand shops or void warranty. Ie ANKC should not have a complete monopoly on what constitutes a "safe" dog.

    The UK has been through all this BSL madness and it did nothing to reduce the number of dog bites or fatal dog attacks.

    Edited everything except the links to the news sites because K&P asked. I will PM the link to the other forum or email the text if people want it. Hopefully it will be printed in the newspapers. Linking other forums without permission is verboten as far as I know.

    Lennox was a dog that was locked up by council rangers based on his appearance, a similar story to Tango? in QLD.
    Link to Victoria Stillwell’s page on Lennox:

    In November 2005, The Guardian newspaper in the UK described the Dangerous Dogs Act as ‘widely criticised as an archetypal piece of knee-jerk nonsense’.

    Iain Hollingshead: Whatever happened to dangerous dogs? | World news | The Guardian
    In January 1997 BBC Radio 4 conducted a poll of the public on unpopular legislation and the Dangerous Dogs Act was represented in that poll.

    A BBC news report from September 2007 states ‘The Dangerous Dogs Act has proved to be controversial, after having been quickly introduced following a series of attacks by dogs.’ The article goes on to quote the RSPCA: ‘The RSPCA says the act is like using "a sledgehammer to crack a nut" and believes it is wrong to criminalise individual breeds of dog.’

    A truer word is never spoken Hyacinth,

    "loose lips sink ships".

    I can tell you now, if I have one no one would know. Not nobodies on the internet, not friends, not family. No one.
    If you find yourself going through hell; Don't stay. Just keep on going.
    Beau.
