I have just received a very disappointing letter from my MP, Kevan Jones, in response to my recent letter to him in which I detailed the effect the "firework season" has on animals and vulnerable people. He states that although he realises that they cause "stress and anxiety," because people enjoy them, he is not in favour of changing the law.
It makes me sad that a member of parliament, who owns a dog himself, could have such a callous view on the matter. He appears to be saying that if you enjoy doing something then you should be allowed to do it no matter what pain and offence you cause to others. In this respect, he is a man of his time.
