Boris – Time to stop playing the clown – Keep London’s wildlife police

Deborah Meaden: ‘Boris please recognise wildlife crime as a dirty business'

May 2012. Businesswoman Deborah Meaden, has thrown her support behind the World Society for the Protection of Animals' campaign to ask the London Mayoral candidates to ensure police funding to tackle the capital's wildlife crime.
So far, Brian Paddick, Jenny Jones and Ken Livingstone have pledged to secure the future of the Met Police Service's Wildlife Crime Unit (WCU) if elected.
The candidates are adding their voices to the more than 10,000 people already backing the World Society for the Protection of Animals' (WSPA) campaign to safeguard the future of the city's specialist wildlife police in the face of austerity cuts.
The only major candidate to not have publicly supported the Metropolitan Police Service's Wildlife Crime Unit (WCU) is Boris Johnson.
London is international hub for illegal trade
Deborah Meaden said: "With London as a UK and international hub for illegal trade in wildlife, the commitment of the London Mayor to adequate policing is crucial. Some of the animals that come into our capital dead, or in parts, I have seen recently in the wild where they belong. I can't believe that Boris would support this dirty business."
