Although it’s acknowledged by science that animals possess sentience, the Tories are choosing to deny this. Much like how they deny the unpopularity of Jacob Rees-Mogg. Or, for that matter, pretty much any other science.

How can they be so beastly, though? We spoke to a biologist to find out.


Doctor Doolittle told us:

We know that animals possess sentience. They’re also capable of feeling pain and emotion. But there are lots of things animals don’t have.

Porcupines, for example, have no sense of humour. And killer whales are incapable of feeling pensive.

Perhaps the most surprising mental omission in the animal kingdom, though, is the Tory big beast – a creature which lacks the capacity to feel guilt.

Most human beings, when confronted with the sight of a fox being torn to shreds by dogs, would feel sick. If you look at the brain of a Tory MP, though, you’ll see the areas that light up are those associated with joy, humour, and arousal.

We know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support

The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.

The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.

So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.
