If you live in the UK or follow British politics, then you would have heard of Andrea Leadsom.

As well as saying she is better suited to be a Prime Minister than Theresa May because she is a mother and opposing gay marriage, she is also a bitch when it comes to animals.

Yes, Andrea Leadsom supports hunting.

Have we travelled back in time? Do people seriously think this is okay? To put the icing on the cake, she has now been appointed as Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.

The woman now in charge of responsibilities such as the food and farming industry supports murdering animals. Not just for food, but for ‘fun’.

If she thinks killing innocent animals for fun is okay, it’s not hard to imagine how she’ll tackle animal agriculture. Or in fact, not tackle animal agriculture.

I fail to understand why Theresa May finds it acceptable to appoint a hunter in charge of Animal Welfare policies. She doesn’t just support it, she openly calls for it to be brought back.

Yes, she is truly that awful.

Yet, not only is she a hunter, she also voted against trying to stop climate change, including when setting targets on reducing carbon emissions in both 2012 and 2016.

Remind yourself that this isn’t some crazy Disney villain, this is genuinely the woman in charge of the welfare of animals in the UK.

Sadly, it gets worse. In 2011 she backed the Government in selling of the countries forests, with the Government later making a U turn on their decision. Even better? Before joining Parliament, she was a Climate Change denier.

When I first came to this job one of my two questions was: ‘Is climate change real?’

– Andrea Leadsom

So, a fox hunting, forest destroying, climate wrecking MP is now in charge of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.

With the removal of the Department of Climate Change, we need people who truly care about our planet in charge of what happens to it. Although luckily she has little say over energy policy, issues like fox hunting, badger culls, and floods caused by climate change all fall within her power.

It’s more important than ever that we keep our message loud and our voices louder, so people like Andrea Leadsom don’t destroy this country and the environment any further.
