Greens: Gove’s live exports U-turn further proof of Brexiteers “hollow” promises

12 September 2018

Speaking today in reaction to Michael Gove’s decision to back off banning live animal exports, despite Vote Leave’s claims during the referendum [1], Green Party of England and Wales Animal Rights Spokesperson Keith Taylor said:

“Time and again, leading Brexit campaigners like Michael Gove have shown that their promises are hollow. Reneging on the pledge to ban the cruel practice of live exports might not be surprising, but that doesn’t make it acceptable.

“It has become blindingly clear that Gove, Johnson and their Brexiteer colleagues cannot be trusted. Greens will continue fighting alongside campaigners in the UK and across Europe for an immediate end to this barbaric industry."
