Elephants will come over here and take the jobs of our common shire horse. Did you know a single elephant can pull two to three times that of a shire? What next? We will be measuring our cars in elephant power and all the numbers will be smaller!
Nigel Farage and five of his MEPs defended the jobs of British Mammals in January.
By voting “No” to a resolution that would strengthen the response to the illegal ivory trade in Europe. Out of 671 MEPs, just 14 said no. 6 of whom (the biggest faction) were from UKIP.
This wasn’t just ivory but wildlife trade and endangered species protection.
Why did they do so? Well UKIP opposes any trend that could expand European control and this would in effect agree that the UK wishes to stand against the trade in Ivory and wildlife.
On a more serious note, if the EU tried to expand European responses to child labour, modern slavery and human trafficking would Nigel Farage oppose it?
