RMB U-turn Lecture Tour - 2006

Welcome to the 2006 Lecture Tour
A U-turn is long overdue. Pet owners and the wider community need to:

           First: Stop
           Second: Survey the road in all directions
           Third: When safe to do so, indicate and complete the turn
           Fourth: Accelerate smoothly in the OPPOSITE DIRECTION

Yes, that's what we need to do: Travel in the opposite direction.

No more feeding junk pet food and no more acceptance of vets who peddle harmful diets and who charge for treating but not preventing a host of junk food induced diseases.

In recent years a bastardised form of raw feeding has emerged. Based on the fantasy that dogs are omnivores the 'barf' (colloquial term for vomit) diet is promoted by merchants selling pulped concoctions of meat, vegetables and artificial supplements. It's another spin on the Pet-Food Fraud.

Please come along to the U-turn Tour and contribute to discussions on how pet owners and the wider community can better understand and combat the:

           Five Facets of the Pet-Food Fraud

  • Pets — cruelty, ill-health and suffering
  • Science — misused and abused
  • Frontier science — blocked
  • Economic, human health and natural environmental consequences
  • Dysfunctional democratic, administrative and legal systems

This meeting has been arranged by UKRMB, is hosted by David Lepper MP and is by 'invitation only' for all Members of Parliament.

It's vital that Members of Parliament learn about the full effects of the Pet-Food Fraud and can thus enact laws that will usher in fabulous benefits for pets and people once we accelerate smoothly in the opposite direction.

UK Residents:
           Please encourage your Member of Parliament to be there.

           List of UK MPs:

           It's best to address letters to:
           Mr/Ms/Dr NAME MP
           London SW1A OAA

           UK residents can use a free fax service at:

           For more information and help with writing to your MP please email:

Non UK Residents
           You can schedule briefing sessions with your elected representatives            

It's the best way to get existing anti-cruelty and consumer protection laws acted upon and for new laws to be introduced to curb the excesses of the pet food industry/veterinary alliance.
