DAY 293: Writing to the Prime Minister

21 Jun

I BRING the PM to the attention of a story in yesterday’s Herald Sun, about the Australian Federation of Islamic Councils suggesting refugees could be given jobs slaughtering animals in a halal fashion right here in Australia, to save the need for the same treatment in Muslim countries.

What a terrific solution to the problem of the live exportation of animals, eh?

The Herald Sun points out that ‘this’ (well, they put a lot of things in that story in ‘inverted commas’) would be at the expense of tax-payers – but I don’t go there.

So far this idea has been rejected by the state and federal governments, but I’ve now Facebooked and emailed the PM, so we’ll see what gives.

Keeper? That was easy.
