Yes, but legal and illegal are terms set by the govt and establishment aren't they? They decide what the laws are. Although the things they do are not 'illegal', they are just as reprehensible, if not more so, than slapping a stallion. And I didn't say every animal lover voted Tory, I said many of them did. And they're responsible ultimately for the benefit cut and other anti-poor policies you see currently. Perhaps it's best expressed by the great Ewan McColl: "It's illegal to kill off your landlord Or to trespass upon his estate But to charge a high rent for a slum is O.K. To condemn two adults and three children to stay In a hovel that's rotten with damp and decay It's a thing that is perfectly legal."
