closed topic 1

User deleted.
This being due to not only `lack of interest`
but also what I now call : `rudeness by
members` here :
http://community.plus.net/forum/index.php/topic,84171.0.html
One day people might just learn their error, whilst my
intentions were good - but whilst members here appear to
prefer some silly topics rather than serious issues which
affect us all - then I dont need your hints - and I certainly dont
need your rudeness - and in future I shall post elsewhere,
where such topics ARE appreciated for their value.
thank you.

The responsible dog owners will comply, most already have their dogs chipped anyway, the irresponsible ones will just ignore it, so will serve no purpose what so ever.

Re: Opinions on forced microchipping of your dogs.

Great idea, NOT! Just another way to tax and keep the public under surveillance.
Look what happened when all the pistols had to be handed in, did it reduce gun crime NO! If a criminal wants a gun he goes and gets one, he doesn't buy it at the local gun shop (if they still existed).
All that happens is the the law abiding joe will have to comply and KEEP IT UP TO DATE, the criminal with the pit bull will either give false details or not even bother. We are already under surveillance more than ANY OTHER COUNTRY including the state controlled ones, you are actually freer (to move around)  in one of the tin pot African countries than you are here, everywhere you go, in a car on on foot, cameras are watching YOU... Possibly waling along the Yorkshire Moors you will be free of cameras for a few miles, but don't go into a town or village. Crazy

Did you realise that the government want to ban microchips and replace them with thicker chips http://nannyknowsbest.blogspot.com/2010/03/nanny-wants-thicker-chips.html

Quote from: WildRose52

you`re even going to get a MICRCHIP in your dustbin so it can track your rubbish
and they`ll TAX you accordingly.

'Weigh' I believe is the word you were looking for. Wink
Your rubbish would be weighed and you would be charged accordingly.
Which of course means everyone would be emptying their rubbish in other people's bins Wink

Re: Opinions on forced microchipping of your dogs.

Superb idea! Yesterday my wife and I were "jumped on" by a pair of young Rhodesian Ridgebacks which were off their owners lead. We were walking in a quiet part of the countryside and it actually quite unnerved us - ripped coat, mud everywhere and no apology from the owner.
If there's a register to go with the chips then I'm all in favour of it; maybe it could be used to get this particular dogs' owner to behave responsibly. And Wildrose, just remember the public backlash against the so-called poll-tax a few years ago. People power actually does work. If we don't want to be chipped we won't be!
