JILL SEYMOUR MEP: Save Rudolph . . . Sleigh HS2
Jill Seymour, UKIP MEP for the West Midlands has launched a petition to try and save the reindeers at Blithbury Lodge in Staffordshire after owner Stephen Swinnerton said they would most likely have to be culled to make way for HS2.
The farm which he has built up over 10 years will be damaged beyond repair – just to provide a proposed trackway and turning area.
The HS2 team are always telling us they have the interests of people along the proposed route of the line at heart.
If this is true, then they will prove it by moving their proposed building site a few hundred yards, away from the reindeer farm onto nearby arable land, which will cause much less disruption and heartache.
If they refuse, then Rudolph, along with his 200 friends and relatives, will have to be culled to make way for this building site, because it will wreck the habitat they require.
I’m calling on Theresa May and her Government to do the sensible and compassionate thing by instructing HS2 Ltd to move the disruption and building site away from the Blithbury Reindeer Lodge.”
I am asking for as many people as possible to sign my petition and share it to all their contacts – asking them to sign as share as well.
We need to get some momentum behind this to show we are a caring nation who puts people and animal welfare above money and profit.
Please, please do sign the petition, it is the best chance we have to save these lovely reindeer and their habitat.
