SATURDAY'S Oxford demonstration in favour of animal research was yet another opportunity for vivisection proponents to shut off all intelligent assessment of their cruel and scientifically bogus activities.

This was accomplished by invoking the spectre of an irrational, violent and extremist enemy. Yes, there are some within the anti-vivisection movement, because of the levels of frustration they feel, who resort to threats and property damage.

But the vast majority of us are unequivocally opposed to this kind of aggressive tactic and tired of such minority activities being used as an excuse to invalidate a rational and heartfelt objection to animal research.
