The tories have voted that animals feel no pain!

This is crazy!
Even if you are not an animal lover surely you have studied biology even as a young child!

The title of this thread is so misleading, what the Tories did was vote against a 2017 amendment to the EU withdrawal bill relating to existing EU laws on animal welfare. They (the government) have in fact drafted a new bill (currently under discussion) which aims to specifically recognise animal sentience and increase the punishment for those convicted of animal cruelty.
