As someone who works in liveries said to me, think of a horse like a car.
The RSPCC then enters my house to retrieve my car keys, and takes my car away, washes it, puts new tyres on it and patches up the body work. They then launch a private criminal prosecution against me for neglecting my car, and a civil suit against me to recoup the cost of the work they’ve done on my car and the cost of storage.
How are the RSPCA’s powers any different?
Anyway, thanks for reminding me of yet another way in which New Labour have handed unprecedented powers to unelected and unaccountable bodies.
I’d rather give my money to the Robert Mugabe Freedom Foundation.
