Sorry about the shocking image.
I found this news on the excellent tompride.wordpress.com
David Cameron promised to put a ban on ivory trading in place. Prince William is a vocal supporter of a ban after seeing the horrors of it in Africa first-hand. Even China has promised a ban by the end of this year and they use it in medicine!
However, under pressure from powerful lobby groups such as the British Antique Dealers’ Association (BADA), Theresa has left it out of the manifesto adding her callousness regarding fox-hunting to a shocking disregard for elephants. The BADA president is Lady Victoria Borthwick, Tory MP.
According to tompride:
‘On average, an elephant is killed every 15 minutes for its ivory and their population has fallen by almost a third in Africa since 2007.’
This is the measure of the Tories.
