Its a bit late for that now but I would say you need to take a look at the political life columns about once a month, or even once a week, all through the Government.   What some say when they want your vote isn't really the best way to judge them

ur all so rite but the matter is the owners its got to be sad wen they find out ,i would be mad if they hadnt told me , i think they should bring the licence back ,
Sorry if it's already been mentoned but I read that it was going to be law from next year to have all dogs micro-chipped due to the expense councils pay looking after strays. So, surely it follows that they will scan all dogs, dead or alive?
