I WAS interested to read Amanda Wragg’s review of The Cona restaurant (The Yorkshire Post Magazine, July 12), and would like, if I may, to add some comments of my own.
Firstly, I will point out that I am not a vegetarian, but I do believe that any animal killed for our consumption should have as stress-free and humane an end as possible. I also accept there are cruel practices in several British slaughterhouses, which are to be abhorred. However, as Ms Wragg choose to highlight halal slaughtered meat as “fine-dining”, then my comments will refer to this method of killing only. I would ask whether she has ever seen any footage of animals being slaughtered using the halal method? I have. And what I saw made me feel sick to the stomach.

I CAN’T believe that various beauty brands have turned their backs on their anti-cruelty policies and have started animal research in order to make massive profits in China, a country where it’s compulsory for products to be “safety-tested” on live animals.
What a disgraceful lack of consistency, and hypocrisy of the worst kind.
