Scottish Government decides to review exotic pets

If these 'know-nothings' get their way in UK and Scotland then we could be next on their list...

It might be worth joining the 'Hands Off My Hobby' campaign. I think I shall.

I read that this morning.

Would the bundle of muppets we have running the country know what they were looking at? Or even take an interest?
Surely not..... Theres no way to line their pockets with a move like that??? or maybe im just synical

You can practically guarantee that these guys would be the first person/people to comment on an aquarium when they see it. Something along the lines of "Oh, isn't that pretty?", "What type of fish are they?" etc.

Anybody that comes to my home for the first time spend more time looking at my fish than talking to me.

As has been said, once there's nothing untoward happening, we should be left as is. Invasive species etc don't get past the boarders to reputable lfs and while some of us get disappointed with that, we understand the reasoning.

In my opinion, something like this, is a case of someone with too much time on their hands. Excuse the pun but there are always bigger fish to fry.

A worry alright especially with the usual approach to these things being "oh ! an issue lets ban everything just to be on the safe side" why don't any of these issues end up with a sensible middle ground solution

Sounds like someone watched a documentary about the practices in certain outdoor markets (namely to monkeys) in some foreign country and now now everything is under the radar and could result in a blanket ban if the politicians don't open their eyes to what they're signing.
