Harp Seals dial M for McCartney

Mace Maybe its a question of universal values. George Bush believes that values like democracy and freedom are such, and he’s been force-feeding them on a comparitively unwilling populace for the past 3 years. Lets call it “teething problems”. While there are obviously scales of magnitude involved I don’t find it too dis-similar to Paul McCartney & his wife Linda Heather Mills telling Canada that their annual seal hunt is barbaric and should be stopped. Excuse me? Lets roll out a capital “H” for Hypocrisy. We’re quite happy to buzz-saw chicken necks and slit cow and sheep throats by the billion but its not OK for some rural Quebecois and Newfies to beat the heads in of a couple of hundred thousand Harp & Greycoat seals simply because they’re cute?
Unsurprisingly root & berry diet advocates PETA are backing the idealistic crusade using their extensive media power to play up the myth that “nearly half of the seals are skinned alive” when in fact any post-mortem movement can be attributed to the nervous “swim reflex” condition – also displayed in chickens when they run around after being decapitated.

Just another example in the litany of people telling others what’s good for them.
