Such a prescient, beautiful sentiment.

Cultural Differences?

Banned In The UK Since 1835.
For A Reason.

Dog Fighting.

"Dog Fighting in Britain - The Shocking Reality, August 31, 2007 by Ryan O'Meara. Dog fighting has been illegal in Britain from as early as 1835. The pastime is viewed by most as a violent and savage example of man manipulating nature to fulfil his own curious blood lust and is therefore banned nearly everywhere in the world. Our shocking investigation uncovers the reality – dog fighting has far from disappeared, in fact it’s a hobby that is distressingly alive and well…."

"Dog fighting is part of life in rural Punjab and Kashmir and there are fears that its acceptability could be increasing among a new generation of young Asians in the UK aware of fathers, uncles and cousins attending dog fights in Pakistan.
But forensic psychologist Dr Vince Egan, of the University of Leicester, believes this creates real dangers of a tolerance of cruelty and of lowering ideas of "what is acceptable" and creating greater cruelty.
The RSPCA says it is keen on tackling this problem in the British Pakistani community but is finding it hard to penetrate the gangs."

A point I wish to make in all this is that we are becoming evermore overcrowded and laws, behaviour and history have all sought to improve us as a civilised country. Yet we cannot police, nor should we try, the world. So why have we thrown away our ability to continue improving, by creating ever more damaging and difficult problems? We have to consider such matters as women's rights, female circumcision, forced marriages, religious hatreds, racism, cruelty. Of course these exist everywhere but each culture handles them in their own way. Each nation used to have dominion within their own shores and lands. This dominion is now disappearing in The UK and it seems no one in authority or in politics wishes to really face up to what has happened and the likelihood of matters getting ever worse for everyone.
Please don't hit the racist button. So passe!


  1. Oh for a smaller nation and better run.

  2. I'm very surprised that the BBC reported this.
    Apparently the Asians (let's be honest - Muslims) are more cruel (according to the RSPCA) than white people involved in such activities because the Muslims see dogs as dirty animals and let them fight to the death, whereas whites will pull the dog out before it becomes too badly hurt.

  3. Well, surprise, surprise. Our hard-won civilisation is being eroded and we are headed back to the Middle Ages.

    What was that about the River Tiber foaming with blood?

    When the egregious bastards bother to smear you, OR, you know you're on the right track.

  4. JPT said 'whereas whites will pull the dog out before it becomes too badly hurt' because they want to use it again of course, not because they are kinder people.

  5. Anon: I beg to differ, in a recent RSPCA investigation into dog fighting in the MUSLIM community an officer of the RSPCA said he had never seen a dog fighting ring amongst white people that involved the dogs fighting to the death (of course some of the dogs do die it was not the norm) and he felt whereas the white dog fighters (still bloody cruel people mind) had respect for their dogs the Muslims saw them as dirty animals and had NO respect for them whatsoever.
    Maybe he was mistaken.

  6. “Love all of God’s creation, the whole of it and every grain of sand. Love every leaf, every ray of God’s light! Love the animals, love the plants, love everything. If you love everything, you will soon perceive the divine mystery in things. Once you perceive it, you will begin to comprehend it better every day. And you will come at last to love the whole world with an all-embracing love.” Fyodor Dostoyevsky, 19th century.

    they should shoot the bastards in the head.

    that's not racist its called justice

  8. You a dog lover, Anonymouse? We do have something in common then!

    By the way IP source for 13 yes votes on the poll are the same! So that counts as only one.

  9. Oddrightie

    of course my staff is a good dog

  10. oddrightie

    I only voted 8 times and from several different IP addresses

  11. Thank you, Anonymouse, so seven off that column = 12.5%. This automatically gives the Twice No column 87%. Very Glenrothes.

  12. As someone who's kept dogs this disgusts me. But you won't hear about this in the MSM. It' un-PC to criticise them.

  13. OMG, Old Rightie, I actually recoiled when your page loaded. As for the RSPCA saying they can't infiltrate the rings - what about the police? Or what about going back to dog licences again? I'm sick of barbarous practices being imported into this country.

  14. I am surprised no one has linked this to the dreadful murders of hostages, so beloved of this culture we so readily import.
