A lobbyist for the vivisection industry has been appointed as spin doctor for Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg.
LibDem activist Olly Grender works for the lobbying firm Political
Lobbying and Media Relations who represent amongst others the pro-animal
experiments organisation Understanding Animal Research who swing from
very dubious claims about the effectiveness of using animals and more
often downright misinformation and lies.
You can contact Clegg asking why such a partisan character has been
brought into the heart of Govt. here:
Thanks to Guido Fawkes for this info

The European parliament recently voted to further weaken already grossly
inadequate laws to protect animals being experimented on in EU Labs.
This includes a section intended to save research firms money by
allowing them to kill surplus or 'spent' animals by a heavy blow. You
can now legally smash a lab animal with a hammer or against a wall to
kill it anywhere in the EU when it's no longer 'useful'.
The new Act also prevents any member states from enacting national
legislation to improve lab animal welfare. This it has been claimed is
to make countries "equally competitive to business".
Last week Alex Salmond announced that he had sent a personal letter in
his capacity as first Minister to the European Commissioners demanding
immediate and urgent action on a serious matter.
What was his complaint? That EU legislators had ruled that the soft
drink Irn Bru had too much artificial colouring in it and had to remove
A very public fan of the drink Salmond was reportedly incensed as it was
claimed this would alter it's "iconic" orangey colour and fired a
diplomatic firestorm at them for this.
If the guy can jump up and act on a matter as trivial as this then if
you're a resident in Scotland tell him to get his finger out and demand
action on the EU's betrayal of animals.
Contact him at this address: FirstMinister@scotland.gsi.gov.uk
Also please sign the petition demanding the UK Govt. stand up to the EU for once and refuse to implement this edict: http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/15996

Scotland for Animals have discovered through freedom
of information requests that Edinburgh University and Aberdeen
University are currently working with a private biotech firm, Ingenza
Ltd., conducting yet more animal experiments.
The purpose of this project is to attempt develop feul from their digestive juices.
To date 10 animals have been killed including 4 reindeer. 2 sheep are
also being kept alive and their stomach bile extracted regularly to be
analysed. We can only imagine what these animals are going through.
We've always asked people to discount the boasting of Edinburgh Uni
particularly when they claim that they only carrying out "life saving"
research to cure disease. These bodies are about making money, we don't
see what possible benefit there could be to Scotland's horrendous record
of illness and premature death of these 'Institutions' teaming up with
chemical companies and killing animals to produce synthetic petrol.

Chimps see daylight for first time in their lives after being confined to cages in a lab.
Other animals aren't so lucky. Please consider joining Scotland for
Animals and help us get every other lab animal out into the sunshine.

See article re: vivisection below.
Scotland for Animals have been leading the campaign against animal
experiments in Scotland, we'll be bringing Andre Menache back to the
Country soon to give the scientific case for real research.
You can get more info on Andre's organisation, Antidote Europe and it's work here: antidote-europe.org
Cancer Research UK are running a savvy in Scotland emotionally
blackmailing anybody who'll listen into giving them a free rein to waste
as much money and lives as possible. If you live here you'll know we've
the worst rates of cancer in Europe despite CRUK and others milking the
public for every penny they can ponce.
It's time the back was broken of the stranglehold pro-vivisection
organisations have on society. We can and with your help we will.

With the big rise in animal experiments in Scotland
last year mainly due to pushing GM animals for research here's an
excellent piece on the stupidity and cruelty of these projects. Thanks
to Dr Andre Menache of Antidote Europe for article.

Cancer Research UK are currently dropping begging letters through
Scotland's letterboxes full of emotive nonsense to blackmail you for
The last thing CRUK want is a cure for cancers as
it'd bring their multi-million pound money making scam,and the juicy
executive paypackets and perks that come with it to an end.
give them nothing,send the appeal back in its prepayed envelope with
the written message that you won't be conned and that if they want
advice on real research not corporate greed they should contact Scotland
for Animals. You can do this anonymously.
Dr Sally Burtles of Cancer Research UK is on record as stating "We do trials in people because animal models do not predict what will happen in humans."
Stop killing them then Sally.

We've had a few run-ins with Subway sandwich chain of shops as they promote halal meat. We're sad to find that they also support the vivisectionist charity Heart Research UK.
If you'd like to send them an email voicing your concerns then cut and paste the following email
Dear Sir or Madam
Yet again I am very disappointed to see that Subway does not care about animals. Not only do you push halal meat you are also promoting Heart Research UK who test on animals. There are lots of health charities out there, it's sad that you have chosen this charity.
If you are keen to promote healthy hearts would you consider putting a vegan option on your menu? I know you have salad but that's it, but there aren't even any tasty dressings to go with salad.
I very much look forward to hearing from you.
