“The legality of biyung and selling at reptile fairs by amateurs and hobbyists is questionable”! To which Mr Newman replied: “Perhaps you could be more specific because the legal situation is very clear – it is lawful, this point has been clarified by the Judicial Review.” So, Mr Newman would YOU please be more specific yourself and directly quote the section in the Judicial Review that you THINK states that hobbyists can legally sell at reptile fairs. While I await Mr Newman’s ‘quoted facts’ he also mentioned an ASA adjudication against the Animal Protection Agency – which I have now looked up. Mr N seems to have overlooked a couple of things here too. 1. the ASA are not experts on animals and conservation, they merely look at their own business codes, and 2. (and this is gonna hurt Mr Newman a bit) while he tried to make a big thing that: “The Animal Protection Agency IS NOT a formal government agency”, yet again he has failed to examine the facts (even the ‘basic facts’ that he says he likes) so, wait for – yes the Advertising Standards Authority’ is also NOT a government agency but a COMPANY, yes a BUSINESS!I’ve also looked over the Animal Protection Agency’s site and, again contrary to Mr N – it manifestly is NOT a fanatical Animal Rights organisation but a science-based one.Back to selling animals at pet fairs: if Mr Newman was up to date, he’d know about the pending prosecution of hobbyists for selling at a recent pet fair. He can add that to his basic facts to note.Regards, Jane
