UKIP support ban on non-stun slaughter

That’s both halal and kosher.                                                                                                    h/t

    How is this going to impact the supply of Kosher pickles?

    • glasnost

      That reminds me of the joke about a pickle-slicer.

    • It depends how you kill the pickles.

        I’m starting to get the feeling I’m doing it all wrong. 😉

        you are not meant to kill them, just cut a bit off the end , I think…

        • Drunk_by_Noon

          Is eating them live out of line?

          • ntt1

            well sure otherwise you lose the crunch,

    In the world of crazy, animal rights trump everything.

      Sometimes you have to work with what you got.
      The UK are absolutely insane over these sorts of things too, so this just might get a bit of traction, and just maybe trump the rights of the halal fanatics.
      It’s a smart move for UKIP I think.

      • I don’t know much about kosher slaughter.

        You might say: “look it up”, but it’s not that simple. Religious slaughter is a hot topic. I have had to wade through a fair amount of stuff before coming to an opinion of what halal slaughter involves. (FYI: it’s nasty.) But, as with any contentious subject, particularly involving Islam, it’s hard to find someone speaking honestly. There’s different versions of theory, and there’s different versions of practice.

        Look, I’m a philo-Semite and I’m full of Islamonusea. But if kosher slaughter genuinely is crueler than it needs to be then it should be banned.

    I would like mandatory labels for all meat in Canada also. Premium Triple AAA beef brand in Alberta now does halal slaughter for the expanded market that equals more money for ranchers I guess. If I remember correctly, Kosher methods of slaughter already does stun animals first.

      halal certification requires a kickback to the imams which almost certainly goes to terrorism. I want to be able to avoid supporting islam in any way and I refuse to buy halal anything

    We need UKIP in Canada!!!

  • ntt1

    When does Canada get a UKIP type party? This is common sense and it reasserts one of the better attempts to humanize an inhumane process at least stunning renders the animal comatose. the religions that still demand live conscious throat slashing are the ones with a vengeful blood thirsty god , the animal is a blood sacrifice ,should we even contemplate pandering to this god?
    The one thing I find Annoying about Farage is that he is usually photographed with a well dented pint of best bitter, My last draft bitter was 1975 , Five Bells, Bromley, I’m dryer than a popcorn fart and, although being a stalwart and stout supporter of artisanal brewers I have yet to find a comparable brew here

    what is the situation in canada?

    Perhaps the way to go here is to use a guillotine.

      Are you talking about on the treasonous progressives, or on the food supply.

    Slaughter without pre-stunning is already banned in Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Switzerland. I don’t think that muslims there have become vegetarian.
