Of Pigs and Sheeple in Britain

Pigs are smarter than Government Bureaucrats.

"A bureaucrat is the most despicable of men, though he is needed as vultures are needed, but one hardly admires vultures whom bureaucrats so strangely resemble. I have yet to meet a bureaucrat who was not petty, dull, almost witless, crafty or stupid, an oppressor or a thief, a holder of little authority in which he delights, as a boy delights in possessing a vicious dog. Who can trust such creatures?"

Marcus Tullius Cicero 
Consul of the Roman Republic

IDIOT ALERT   -   Morons in government demand that British pig farmers re-build every pig pen in the nation.

  • Bureaucrats claim the gaps in the pig pen floors are a massive one millimeter too wide. . . . the little piggies might trip and fall.
  • Rebuilding would cost each farmer £35,000.
  • And the Sheeple of the once great British Empire just roll over like little girly-men and let mindless and ball-less bureaucrats tell them what to do. 

British farmers could be forced to spend about £28 million revamping their pig sheds – because a new ruling from Brussels says gaps in the floors are a millimeter too wide.

Many are threatening to quit farming altogether rather than spend cash on what they call ‘millimeter madness’.  Bacon, pork and ham would all become more expensive if supplies to shops were disrupted as a result reports the UK Daily Mail.
About a third of the 9.5 million pigs reared in this country each year live indoors on concrete slatted floors.

For more than 20 years, the gaps between the slats have been governed  by a British industry standard that has stipulated an opening of three- quarters of an inch (19mm).
These gaps are vital for hygiene.  But a new European Union directive set to come into force next January has decreed that the maximum size of a gap should be reduced to 18mm. 

Animal welfare chiefs in Brussels believe this will stop pigs catching their feet and falling down.  But farmers and vets say there is no evidence that pigs are being hurt. 
About 800 of Britain’s 2,500 commercial pig farmers could be affected, although the NPA is conducting a  survey to establish a more accurate figure. 

On average, if each farmer had to replace the flooring in a shed for 1,000 animals, it would cost £35,000, giving a total bill of £28 million.

The Sheeple of the United Kingdom.
The men of a once great Empire have had their testicles removed by Socialism and Big Government.   Today these so-called "men" allow moronic bureaucrats from other nations to snap their fingers and order them around.

I am not as frightened of the Sheeple as I am of the well informed "leaders" of society.
