Mad Cats

Section:

That a Conservative MP is bringing a bill to force drivers who hit cats to go to the police at this time is quite ludicrous

 

Rehman Chisthi, the Conservative MP for Gillingham and Rainham, is a man who likes to champion the most odd causes.

 

A Brexit enthusiast and frequently criticised for “advancing Saudi Arabia’s interests while at the same time being on the pay-roll of a Saudi think-tank,” Chisthi is currently sponsoring what is known as the Cats Bill 2017 – 2019.

 

In summary, the Bill seeks to “require the driver of a mechanically propelled vehicle involved in an accident resulting in injury or death to a cat to stop and give information or report the accident to the police; to require the keepers of certain cats to ensure they are microchipped; and for connected purposes.”

 

Aside from being bizarre, is this really something that Parliament – at time when our nation is in crisis – should be prioritising? We most definitely think not.

  1. Bloody ridiculous, some nobody after a bit of publicity. Cats shouldn’t be out roaming the streets on their own anyway. Dogs here, have to be on a lead at all times in public, unless in a leash free area, should be the same for the moggy.
    I won’t be swerving.
