poor sheep......surely some mufti in Birmingham or Berlin could do it?
they could slit a sheep's throat before it had time to say 'baah'
but they don't
as far as I remember (and I never check facts before posting as I consider it to be the equivalent of taking a set of encyclopedias into a pub quiz)
after Ramadan there is the festival of Eid where understandably people are quite hungry and want to have a feed
and watch the sheep getting offed in public in a scene not disimilar to something out of Spartacus Blood and Sand
it is the spectacle that the public enjoy
if the sheep had been offed in a slaughterhouse in Droitwich in would not have the same effect
it is not quite as exciting for them to hear the mufti say 'and we are just opening the doors on the refridgerated lorry now'
