“Encouraging”

The pathetic failure of the Labor caucus yesterday to stand up for even basic animal welfare standards:

Despite appeals from some caring Labor MPs during caucus debate, the motion was considerably weakened from ‘mandating’ stunning to ‘encouraging’ stunning — meaning that animals will continue to be exported and have their throats cut while fully conscious in foreign abattoirs.

“Encouraging” stunning? Seriously? FFS.
