    Dangerous Dog Act, it's horrifying for British law to mandate the automatic killing of 4 breeds of dog.
    I don't agree with the prohibition against selling, abandoning, giving away or breeding from any of the banned breeds either.

    I would bring back the death penalty for all terrorism offences that involved plots to kill and incitement .
    I would also introduce the death penalty on conviction for all grooming gangs preying on vulnerable white girls .

    Why are you so focused on the skin colour of abused child rape victims?
    Don't you care about all the victims of sexual abuse gangs- regardless of ancestral heritage?

    New law: One day, for 12 hours, there would be no law. Everything is legal.

    The ‘Argentino Doggo’ for example is extinct I read. You have to create it by mixing a multitude of breeds.

    This breed is not to be used as a pet. 99% of people cannot adequately give it the exercise and engagement it needs.

    So point 1 - You could certainly argue it’s cruel to keep it as a pet.

    Point 2 - 99% of those who have created said dog, use it for felonious purposes.
    Fiercely loyal to ‘family’ and hence why socialisation at puppy stage is essential.

    In other words, if you fail to socialise the dog it will then treat any other person as ‘hostile’.
    This isn’t ‘German Shephard’ loyal, this is attack dog loyal.

    Tell you what... I’ll send you into a house with one of the 4 banned dog groups and you go in and take their owner away due to a medical issue or criminal issue and let me know how you get on....

    I'm tempted to think this would be a decent idea, but not just letting people drive around with no protection at all. You should have either the option of insurance, or a guarantor of someone who could afford repair payments (third party only) if you caused a crash, or if you own a house you should be able to link any claims to your mortgage.

    The fact is that the vast majority of people never claim on their car insurance, yet spend thousands upon thousands on it.

    I think that's already a thing, the sum you need to set aside is pretty huge though £500,000.

    If you haven’t lost all your limbs or your life that is
    I work with dogs three days a week and have held both pitbulls & tosas without any injury- even when the dogs had temper tantrums.
    The only dog ever to bite me has been a food aggressive yellow labrador trying to get my lunch.
    I've also been bitten by a meerkat and injured by several cats.

    I don't believe in capital punishment as regards human criminals.
    Nor do I agree with British law ordering the automatic killing of dogs based solely upon breed.
    Bad owners with criminal tendencies can train any dog to behave in a menacing way, regardless of breed.
    I'm more concerned with criminal people and bad owners than legislating the mass killing of dogs born into the "wrong breed".

    Sounds like the last hen do I went on, except that lasted longer than 12 hours. 15 I think.
