You ever read something so tragically funny that you just can't help but tell the world? Well I just did. Just when you think that Australian politicians could not get any worse, the following gem is released by Luke Simpkins. Luke is the Liberal party member for Cowan
Consumers are currently being denied information about meat products being sold in Western Australia according to the Federal Member for Cowan, Luke Simpkins MP.
In a speech to the Federal Parliament today Mr Simpkins expressed his concerns that a large volume of meat sold in Western Australia isn’t being identified as Halal on the product label.
“I investigated in my electorate and in Western Australia finding that almost every animal, apart from pigs, are killed in accordance with the Islamic religion requirements known as Halal,” Mr Simpkins said.
“So when you go to Coles, Woolworths or IGA, or other supermarkets, you cannot then purchase the meat for your Aussie BBQ without the influence of this minority religion,” said Mr Simpkins. “You have no choice and almost no Australians are aware of this because meat is not labelled.”
“The reality is that almost all meat sold in WA is Halal and people shouldn’t have any religious practice imposed upon them without their knowledge. Labelling will allow consumers to have a choice,” concluded Mr Simpkins.
You could seriously not write parody or satire this good.
