A NEW legal ban on eating dogs has been blocked by Justice Ministry bureaucrats for fear of offending cultural sensitivities in the Far East.
Former DEFRA Secretary Michael Gove ordered the move in the summer despite the sickening practice being rare in the UK.
Dog groups persuaded him that it would send a powerful message to South East Asian countries where the practice is still rife, matching a similar law passed in the US last year.
But The Sun can reveal that nervous civil servants have stepped in to halt the ground-breaking move.
Campaigning Tory MP Giles Watling was told by the MoJ that one of the reasons it acted was that it would be “culturally insensitive” of the Government to dictate to other nations what they should eat.
“It’s not culturally insensitive because we’re not telling them what to do – we’re just telling them what we do.
“We shouldn’t be worrying about that, so I was surprised that was the MoJ’s objection.”
Justice officials also argued that it would be difficult to enforce the law and the current ban on transporting or exporting dog and cat meat suffices.
Most are stolen off the street.
heir meat it is considered both a delicacy and a health tonic.
The World Dog Alliance mounted a campaign in the UK last year for a full ban on any activity relating to the eating of dogs.
A series of MPs back a ban, including former Foreign Office minister Sir Alan Duncan who dubbed it “a disgusting habit”.
A Ministry of Justice spokeswoman said: “We currently have some of the strongest animal welfare laws in the world.
"The government is currently considering whether any changes are needed in this area in the UK and will set out any plans in due course.”
How do these people look at themselves in the mirror every day? Who cares if banning it is culturally insensitive to a MINORITY POPULATION? They are the one who should be worried about what is offensive to the MAJORITY POPULATION. This is a perfect example of why so many Western countries are absolutely fucked in the head.
But but but, what about cultural enrichment? We have so much to learn. Let’s be open minded. Looks like now, the tail wags the dog. I’m so thankful I was privileged to grow up in a relatively sane America.
This is just pandering for a demographic vote.
A ban against the “killing of infidels” would be offensive to Islam…as would be a ban against sex with goats.
What have we come to today that we condone perversions and traditionally illegal acts for the sake of avoiding the offending of some demented turds that think they represent the norm?
Tell these oily neanderthal perverts to enjoy their stay in our prisons…or get out and stay out of this country.
Pretty soon we are going to hear that a ban on pedophilia is offensive to the LGBT community. Just wait for it.
All this fking pandering to minorities is past sickening.This pussy(Gove) has no place in government. This ASSHOLE and others like him should be given a tour of places where dogs and cats are slaughtered for meat.Nezt are videos of dogs and cats herded like cattle.
They are already going down that road with regard to the drag queen story hour.
I don’t necessarily agree with this but I have so much respect for the politicians who are willing to go the extra mile and show reverence for the beliefs of others, especially if those beliefs are held by people of color.
A bit off-topic, but now there’s going to be another freak show to add to the LGBTXYZ ones, of which there’s one every bloody week it seems?
“London’s first Trans Pride support ‘overwhelming’”
Trust the BBC to big it up?
How about the Islamic belief that all infidels must convert or die? Do you show reverence for that?
Do you agree with halal / kosher meat? Do certain people’s beliefs and feelings trump the grotesque suffering inflicted on animals?
Islam is a religion of peace. What you just said is nothing but Islamophobia dog whistling and you should be ashamed of yourself for thinking about Muslims in such a binary way.
I have absolutely no business telling people of color what they can or can’t believe.
Read the Quran. You will find numerous calls for the killing of infidels. You will also find places where the fucking of goats is permitted.
Islam is a FUCKED UP THEOCRACY founded by a goddamned pedophile, Muhammad, the Goat Fucker.
Read the fucked up Quran.
I agree, people can believe what they like, but what if that involves hurting or killing others and they act on their belief? What if they want to throw you off a high rooftop for being gay? Is that ok too?

A handful are honor killings or Sharia executions.During this time period, there were 105 Islamic attacks in 19 countries, in which 520 people were killed and 727 injured.
Jesus wept! Would you call it a ‘religion’ whose worshipers drive a 10 ton truck loaded with steel bars along a crowded pavement . . .
. . . or drives a refuse collection truck along a pavement filled with Christmas shoppers in Glasgow 2 or 3 years ago (I happen to believe it was terrorist-related) ‘a religion of peace?’ And then we have Covent Garden and Westminster Bridge among others?
What @here2bqueer ought to do, as should any other apologist for global Jihad, is watch the scene in Bitter Lake of a madrassa in full-fervour mode - and be afraid. For any westerner to even watch it on film, it’s seriously scary.
You don’t have any business telling anyone what they can or can’t believe. You should work a little bit more on developing your analytical skills.
