Independent Wishaw is alive and kicking
WITH reference to the Racing Post of July 12, Geoffrey Thomas, chief executive of the British Greyhound Racing Board, stated that there had been several cases of cruelty to greyhounds since the closure of Wishaw stadium.
I would like to point out that this is not the case and that the stadium is still staging race meetings twice weekly, so I suggest that Mr Thomas gets his facts right before making a fool of himself to Lord Lipsey.
It is my opinion that Mr Thomas has a biased view towards greyhound racing in the British Isles, especially towards independent tracks, although he was keen for our help when campaigning against the onset of evening meetings for horse racing.
I would also like it to be noted that I have recently donated pounds 500 towards the Greyhound Awareness League.
