I too wrote to them a few years ago and didn't get a reply.
So for the last 5 years I have stopped going into it, not keen on Asda either as they are owned by Walmart who apparently aren't much better. I was not disappointed to see their shares take a nose dive, I was quite pleased. Although it will take a lot more than that to put them under.

Default weibo

Interesting article on the Radio 4 crossing continent series tonight. A Chinese version of Twitter caled "weibo" has in a very short period gained huge popularity in the country with more than 300 million users. The report says that some of the positive effects is a real change in cultural attitudes in some of the most concerning traditions in the country. It cites, the effect on the trade in certain species, including Dogs which for generations have formed part of the food culture. From the report, it indicates that mood for change is now prevalent and issues perhaps including the consumption of Tortoise and Turtle from unsustainable collection in the wild might be considered.
The medium has the potential to effect change and just maybe, a weibo thread might gain ground on this issue?

You really have to be aware that the opinion in this post is heavily slanted.

Yea... culinary expertise coming from an Englishman.

My point here is that this kind of opinion is an extreme. You can think of it along the lines of breeding dogs... or... sheep... or... cattle... or... chickens... or... fish... or... prawn...for food.
