Voice of Scotland; Animals Need Our Care, Not Cruelty


I was disgusted at the sentence Shaheed Saleem received for his cruel treatment of Tyson the bull mastiff.

These Eurocrats seem to do nothing but decide new ways to destroy our Great British traditions. As a retired member of the fire services I would consider it a sad day when the trusty red machines disappear from our streets. They have come to represent hope and dependability to those in need. - B. Prentice, South Queensferry.

BOOT FOR BARBIE
