Beijing 2008 - what do you think?

Dominic Waghorn, Sky News

"Chinese authorities announced a cleanup -- of sorts. Instead of being clubbed to death the animals are electrocuted with home made devices wired to tractor batteries. They struggle to escape as one prong goes in their mouth the other in their anus, then lie twitching and whimpering on the ground. Often the voltage isn't strong enough. There is no effort to check they are dead before they are strung up on the tractor and skinned. In the back of the vehicle their skinless bodies pile up, some clearly still alive, their hearts still beating."

Beijing 2008, then London 2012. The conditions in our food industry and abbatoirs and factory farms and animal torture facilities should be similarly highlighted. People are shithouses, wherever they live.

Didn't we used to have a Waghorn here - Montgomery Waghorn, the drama critic?

That was Percival (Percy) Waghorn. Montgomery (Monty) was his dog

Dog is right! Don't talk to me about that ould shite (God forgive me). All I'll say is Waghorn by name, Waghorn by nature.
