Coming soon - Will dogs, Gods and electronic lizards have rights?

Tomorrow's post will look at changing attitudes to legal rights. At a time when government is accused of eroding hard won human rights and freedoms, why is it lawyers are asking whether legal rights should be extended to domestic pets? And where will this lead? Could intelligent robots have rights one day? And could the government that introduced the 'Religious Hatred' bill one day try and argue that... even Gods, Saints and Icons have rights?

    Well, Gods speak in human language, it seems. Dogs, only being of the barking kind, don't do well under cross examination. But then people are more hung up on pets so... er... fuck knows

    Well of course, ziss is not just about responsibilities, it about the language. But not the post-modernist bullshit merd of my fellow linguafrancist M. Derrida, who actually speak tongues, but the language of business and the law, like my friend Nicolas Sarkozy.

  4. Is this for real?
