Are They Just Jumping Through Hoops?

Having got back from a five bottle lunch Guido was more than a little confused when he tuned into the parliamentary debate about a donkey called monkey.  Anyone fill us in?

For some reason Downing Street are fighting Mark Pritchard’s Wild Animal in Circuses Bill.

He claims “they”, presumably he means the government whips, offered him a job to drop it – “a pretty trivial job” – admirably he’s ended up going rogue and sticking to his guns. What is it about  the exploitation of circus performers that Downing Street opposes?

Oh what a circus! Oh what a show!
