|MORE DONORS MONEY ON BEER|
Last night I attended a “Beer and Curry Night” hosted by the RSPCA (and funded by an anonymous sponsor). There I and other attendees got to tuck in to a delicious curry (chicken, not cat!) Whilst listening to Mr Grant, Mary Creagh (shadow secretary for the environment and rural affairs) and Richard Howitt (MEP for the east of England).
Gavin Grant was brilliant. Utterly unapologetic in his passion for animal welfare and profoundly thankful to Labour for the last government’s progress on the matter — not least of which the fox hunting ban, something which we should all be proud of. He also told some interesting takes, such as that the RSPCA was formed in 1824 on the second attempt, with thanks to William Wilberforce — making it an older law enforcement body than the police.

Mary Creagh focused more on the upcoming badger cull, a path that the government is pursuing
against scientific and economic common sense. The cull, she said, will increase the spread of TB because it will displace badgers and cause them to move around, infecting more cattle.
Beer and curry night, the RSPCA's perennially popular fringe event, is in the Midland Hotel at 8pm. But is it more popular that Owen Jones?
