Animals Count. This is both the name of the newest addition to the UK's political landscape and the basic principle underpinning the group.<br><br><br><br>
The party was officially launched at an annual Christmas fayre organised by Animal Aid - an event which brought together various groups dedicated to protecting animal rights.

Animal rights?<br><br><br><br>
Hardly.<br><br><br><br>
It doesn't even dare recommend vegetarianism. Animals Count is a dangerous neo welfarist group that shoiuld not be supported.

Even though lachry's comment reflects a way too black&white abolitionism, I'd have to agree that any party that has even a slight chance to be elected cannot be for animal rights per se.

I agree, sevenseas - a one trick party can never appeal to the public. Specialized groups are fine, but I'm never convinced by political parties with only one agenda.<br><br><br><br>
Thats just my 2 cents though,<br><br><br><br>

And most importantly, animal rights is much too radical a view for any significant amount of people to vote for a party advocating it.
