“Joanna Lumley is fronting a campaign to shame the UK government into upholding a ban against live veal calf exports. The actress fears next week’s (beginning 8th May 2006) end to the current 10-year ban on the export of British beef will bring about the unnecessary transportation and suffering to thousands of animals. The ban was originally designed to stem the BSE crisis in 1996. Lumley says, “It is simply unacceptable to treat living creatures this way. All we’ve got to do is get people in our country to understand what we’re doing in our land to our animals which are our responsibility. We make these animals be born, we breed them up. They’re entirely our responsibility; their lives and their deaths are our responsibility.”
