The Tories have voted that animals can't feel pain
A horrible piece of UK news from The Independent:
The Tories have voted that animals can't feel pain as part of the EU bill, marking the beginning of our anti-science Brexit
Every single Conservative and DUP MP present voted that all animals (apart from one category of mammal - humans, of course) have no emotions or feelings, including the ability to feel pain. All MPs there from the Labour, Lib Dem, Green and SNP parties voted to keep the protection and the acknowledgement that other species can suffer.
The Tories won the vote.
This is some of the follow-up, including David Attenborough's comments.
