If any cattle are found to be missing a tag during an inspection, we can be severally penalised financially, and in some cases the animal could be removed and sent for slaughter.
At a time when there are discussions regarding where British dark blue passports are printed post Brexit, it is worth considering that whichever company wins the contract should also be given the task of producing identity cards for all ‘British’ citizens.
Arguments against identity cards are now well past their sell by date; events have moved on dramatically. We could choose to be chipped, tattooed with a bar code, or wear large yellow ear tags, proving our identity and passport number, I think I would prefer an identity card.
It is time everyone walking our streets can be identified instantly, it must happen without delay. ID cards should surely be supplied by a British company, not some dodgy foreign set up open to infiltration and corruption by our enemies.
In My Fair Lady (based upon George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion), Professor Higgins asks why can’t a woman be more like a man? Today these sentiments are perversely reversed. It seems that a growing number of females want their men to be more like woman.
These women appear to want their men neutered or at the very least feminised. God forbid they show any kind of macho or laddish behaviour, and they must never give compliments or show affection, open doors or offer up their seat. This only provokes cries from the so called fairer sex, of rape, sexism or chauvinism.
These messages must be confusing so it is hardly surprising if menfolk retreat into their living rooms or the pub displaying neurotic tendencies, or withdraw into a make believe world playing games on lap tops and iPads.
It must be increasingly hard venturing out into the big bad world inhabited by these scary women. Mind you when today one can be any one of 50 different gender types, it must seem like a jungle out there never knowing what or who is behind the façade.
At least in the good old days when one provoked a wolf whistle or corny chat up line, one could be fairly certain the world was inhabited by a healthy bunch of red bloodied heterosexual men, and there was nothing wrong with that!
Hopefully what goes round comes round and it will eventually be realised how daft the current PC, feminist bandwagon phenomenon is. Boys should be boys and girls girls. They have their rules of engagement, and the rest of the muddle in between will just have to realise they are what God made them.
At last Ministers are giving new powers to the police to evict travellers when they set up illegal camp sites in rural communities on village greens, school sports fields, car parks, and in particular farmland. This move is well overdue for many who have suffered years of abuse from travelling communities who consider themselves to be beyond the law.
These people have inflicted noise, abusive behaviour, criminal damage, and vicious attacks on the locals in some cases resulting in death. They create fear in communities and offend with their disgusting anti-social threatening and uncivilised behaviour.
Along with the new proposals allowing immediate eviction, the new powers should also include powers to ensure that any damage to land and property is be paid for by the perpetrators. Their expensive 4 x 4s and other vehicles should be impounded and sold to fund the clean-up and repairs when they are moved on.
