Update: Petition Submission

Brighter Brighter Tomorrow Limited Logo

Yesterday, 7 November 2017, Brian and Maxine Berry traveled via train to Cardiff to deliver the Justice for Chunky to the Welsh petition committee and Bethan Jenkins. Due to the announcement of the death of Carl Sargeant AM, Bethan Jenkins, understandably, did not meet with us but her representative Chad Richard. Our condolences goes out to the family of Carl Sargeant AM.

Before taking the Justice for Chunky petition, a representative from the committee read and felt, semantically it covered Wales and acknowledged it came from Change.org. However, they did not formally take it. Instead the petition was handed to Chad Richard, a representative of Bethan Jenkins who is reviewing it. Brian and Maxine wait to hear the outcome of the review.

As a result of yesterday’s journey, Brian and Maxine expect the campaign for animal abuse register will split into two parts: one for Wales and the other for a UK wide animal abuse register. Finally Brian and Maxine also see the possibility the campaign might split into four parts: Wales, Northern Ireland, Scotland, and a UK wide campaign.

Once we hear more about the outcome, further updates will be posted.

Questions or comments please contact us.

Justice for Chunky Petition Being Delivered To Welsh Assembly 7 November 2017

maxine and chunky

It is a week to go and we (Brian and Maxine) have not heard anything that will indicate there has been a change in plans.

Therefore, we are planning to be in Wales on 7 November to deliver the Justice for Chunky petition to Bethan Jenkins at approximately 12:30 PM. By delivering the petition it will lend support to legislation that will create the first animal abuse registry in the United Kingdom. This is a massive step forward and we hope it will build the necessary framework for a UK wide animal abuse register.

We encourage everyone to show up to lend support. Even if you cannot attend the event in Cardiff, there are things you can do. For starters you can write your MP stating you support an animal abuse register. Also you can write the editor of your local paper, visit The Justice for Chunky Facebook page or buy from us using the below button.

How To Use Color to Make An Exquisite Slime

How To Use Color To Make An Exquisite Jiggly Slime?

At its core, jiggly slime is nothing more than glue, water, and borax. There is nothing complicated and anyone can mix the three ingredients to produce a marvelous wobbly gelatin like product. The challenge lies in bringing the slime to life and making your slime something others want?

The answer is simple, add color. Adding color is an extension of your personality. It can express your mood, something about you, and it can express something about your product. If you are selling slime then picking the right color and more importantly the right hue is very important. 

To demonstrate the above let us take a look at an example, pink. Not to sound sexist, the color pink tends to associated with feminity and it tends to be a color associated with being a girl. From another perspective, color psychology, pink is seen as being calming and vulnerability. At Brighter Tomorrow we offer a few pink slimes but find one tends to be the most popular hue of pink, can you guess which one?

How To Fix 9 Common Issues with Borax Base Jiggly Slime

How To Fix 9 Common Issues with Borax Base Jiggly Slime

Sometime the best intentions can go wrong with making slime and this guide is to help some correct some of the issues. Using our vast experience of making thousand slimes of different kinds Brighter Tomorrow is please to put together this guide for slime enthusiasts. Hopefully this guide will generate love and excitement for making slime. 

1) Slime is Runnier Than Expected

This is most likely due to at least one of three potential explanations:.

  • You added too much water. It is important to use a measuring cup that is clearly marked when measuring liquids and only add the required water.
  • You did not add enough glue. Glue is what gives slime it consistency and not enough glue will give you runny slime.
  • Not enough borax was added. Borax reacts with the glue to give slime its jiggly texture. Not enough borax will produce a very runny, nearly liquid slime.

2) When mixing slime it is runny in parts and clumpy in other parts

This is a process issue. You need to review your process and how you are making slime. Most likely the recipe is correct; however the issue is the steps you are taking or less likely it is the quality of your ingredients. A few possible reasons can include:

  • Water needs to be warm enough to dissolve the glue and borax. If water is not warm enough, then either the glue only will partially dissolve or the borax will not dissolve completely. This can lead to issues.
  • If you are making multiple batches and this happens after the first batch that went well. Then it is likely you have not thoroughly cleaned it enough.You will need to ensure all extra glue is removed and there is no borax residue.
  • You poured your mixture too soon. Ideall your slime takes one – two minutes to form.

3) Air bubbles in mixture

Air bubbles are harmless and does not impact you to use slime. If you get air bubbles the best thing is to do is to let the slime cool uncovered. This will allow the slime to cool and the air to escape. 

4) When slime cools mixture is runnier than expected

One of three possible resons:

  • Added too much water
  • Added not enough borax
  • Did not thorough mix the borax and glue
  • Did not thoroughly clean your slime materials you use for mixing the glue and borax.

5) Color and / or glitter separates from slime

Remember slime is a chemical that operates on the priciples of soluability and gravity like any other chemical. This regularly happens when slime is shipped or sits for a while.  The fix is simple take the slime out and knead it for a few minutes. This will mix any color or glitter that has separated. 

6) White chunks appear in slime after sitting a while

Sometimes if slime sits for a bit some of the borax will separate and white blobs will appear in the slime, especially in lightly colored slime like pink. This is most likely some of the borax separating and it can be easily resolved by kneading the slime for about 1 – 2 minutes to mix it again.

7) Slime is tough after sitting a while

When slime sits it can get a bit tough and loose some of its elasticity. Best option here is to mix it by kneading it for 1 – 2 minutes or use slime reviver

8) Slime Moulds

Remember slime has water.  Jiggly / jelly and goo slimes are very prone to this issuebecause of their high water content. This does not mean other slimes like fluffy are not prone to moulding but it may mean the chance is less. It is therefore important to correctly store your slime by storing it covered in a dry cool area. If you leave it uncovered or in a moist area such as the kitchen, bathroom, or any area prone to moisture then there is a chance it will mold.

9) Colour Stains

This can be a very common issue with food color, especially red. To fix this issue you will need to review your recipe and your process.

If you are using a water based dye but you use oil (e.g. shaving cream, lotion) base products in your recipe then the oil base product(s) may be a part of the issue.  Next look at how you mix the colour. Do you spend time making sure the color is fully mixed or do you just do enough mixing to get the color in to the product? It is important to ensure the color is fully mixed. Finally try different types of coloring beyond food coloring. Granted food coloring is readily available and it is cheap; however food coloring is notorious for staining. However other types of coloring like baking paste colors might provide a better result.

Justice for Chunky and AAR Position Statement of Kosher and Hala Slaughter

Animal Abuse Register logo
Animal Abuse Register logo
Animal Abuse Register logo

Problem With Banning Kosher and Hala Slaughter

Recently I have been asked to support a petition calling for the banning for Kosher and Halal slaughter in the UK that is found on a petition site. Since I do not want to give the individual free publicity for the petition, I am not listing here and I believe, such a petition very disturbing.

For those who support a ban, I believe, do so with malice in their hearts. I further believe a calling for a such a ban is both anti-Semitic and is Islamaphobic. Such a ban, I believe, it violates: Article 8 and 9 of the Human Rights ActUnited Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights Articles: 12 and 18 and Equality Act.

Banning Ritual Slaughter Equates to Anti-Semitism

So why do I believe banning Kosher and Hala slaughter is wrong? I will state I am more familiar with Kosher slaughter and Judaism than Islam. So, my statement will be from a Jewish perspective. However, my statement can be equally applied to Halah slaughter and Islam.  Next, for this statement, I am not going to digress about the differences between Kosher and Halal slaughter. Plus I am not going into defining anti-Semitism and then going into a fully explanation as to why banning Kosher slaughter is anti-Semitism. Instead, I will state, denying a group of people to practice their religion that is acceptable in other parts of the world is wrong and amounts to anti-Semitism. Furthermore, by calling for such a ban demonstrates ignorance, it demonstrates a complete lack of understanding and it demonstrates hate.

I believe banning Hala and Kosher slaughter at is denying non-Christians their right to practice their religion without interference from the government and it is forcing a religion, Christianity, upon them. This raises another question for me? How come those seeking to ban Kosher and Hala slaughter do not also seek to ban Bali and Jhatka religious slaughter too? To be fully compliant with the Equality Act, I believe, the petition should call for the ban of all religious slaughter. The answer is simple, it is not about banning all religious slaughter but something much more troubling. Any special interest or political party that pushes for a ban, I believe, does so from an anti-Semitic perspective. Why do I believe this?

If There is No Anti-Semitism Then How Come the Petition Does Not Call for a Ban on All Animal Slaughter?

Let me ask the question if there is no anti-Semitism then why push for banning Kosher instead of pushing for an outright ban on slaughtering of all animals? Especially when Kosher slaughter has very strict rules for the slaughter that protects the animal for it to be considered Kosher and Kosher slaughter is more humane than non-Kosher slaughter? If the petition is about really about animal rights and protecting the animal then why single out Jews and Muslims?

I do not believe any petition calling for the banning of Kosher of Hala slaughter is about animal welfare. Instead, pushing for such a ban is very reminiscent of 1290 Britain under the Edict of Expulsion from Edward 1, reminiscent of America under Jim Crow laws, and the Holocaust under Nazi Germany.

Ban Denies Basic Human Rights by Creating a “Separate But Equal” Society

Simply put, pushing for a ban denies a group of people their human rights and creates a “separate but equal,” segregated society. Denying a group of people their right to religious slaughter meat when other Western nations still protect their right is regressive. It creates a segregated society where some can practice their religion while others are denied their right to freely practice their religion. Furthermore, it promotes state sponsored Christianity at the cost of religious freedom for all and takes away some freedom.

AAR Campaign is about Uniting Not Dividing

My campaign, AAR – Justice for Chunky, is about making Britain safer and it is about uniting this country. It is not dividing the country along geographical, religious, or political ideological lines. Instead, I seek to unite people, respect their rights, and bring about a solution that works for all. I believe banning Kosher slaughter is anti-Semitc and denies a group of people their right to freely practice their relition in the country when other countries allow Kosher religious slaughter.

Finally, I want to remind the Green Party that a part of my condition for working with them was the animal abuse register will not be used to ban religious slaughter. It is my hope the Green Party continues to respect my wish and it is not behind any of the petitions I am seeing.

What Tikkun olam Can Teach Us about Uniting Britain Through the Animal Abuse Register

Brexit Offers Unlimited Possibilities

We are living in an exciting time, in Britain. Brexit offers the chance to take control of our destiny and achieve the impossible. The only limit is our imagination.  Jesse Jackson said,

No one should negotiate their dreams. Dreams must be free to fly high. No government, no legislature, has a right to limit your dreams. You should never agree to surrender your dreams.
 

My Dream

My dream is making the animal abuse register  similar to the Tennessee model law for the entire UK. Nonetheless, I am a pragmatist and realist. who understands not everyone shares my vision. Granted there are some who believe the Animal Welfare Act 2006 does not need reforming and others who believe longer sentences for those who abuse animals is ludicrous. For those who believe in the status quo and believe the route to ending animal cruelty is by making minor adjustments to the law, I believe they are living in denial. Animal Welfare Act is broken and it is in desperate need of repair. The way to fix is by adopting an animal abuse register that provides longer sentences.

I ask you to imagine a Britain with a strong animal abuse register. Whereby animal cruelty is not just a fine with minimal or no jail time. Instead I ask you to imagine a Britain that say “no” to animal cruelty and creates a society whereby animal cruelty is no longer an issue. This is the type of Britain I want to create with the animal abuse register.

Uniting Britain Through the Animal Abuse Register

So how do we create a society where animal cruelty is no longer an issue and unite? When I read the papers or watch the news, I am reminded great divisions in this country exists. Granted the vote on 23 June 2016 to leave the European Union split the country along remain versus leave. Luckily “time heals all wound,” and the country is slowly forgetting the results. Great Britain is beginning the process of leaving the EU and as a country, we are beginning to establish our identity as a nation free of the EU. The future is creating a lot of anxiety and uncertainty. Nonetheless, there is also a great wealth of opportunity.

As Britain leaves the EU it provides an unique opportunity to heal, lead, and unite. Nonetheless there are still some who cannot forget that fateful day on 23 June 2016 and are unwilling move past the election to allow healing to begin. Luckily, their negative voices are the minority that are going quiet as this unites. This leads me to ask is there a way to unite this country?

Bringing Britain Together by Making Us Safer

I believe there is a way to unite this country. Please allow me a moment to digress, when I started writing this article, my initial topic was examining the question why are men not a part of the animal rights movement? So, I started looking into the question and I began pondering the question. Struggling with question and wondering why I was not able to cohesively write about it. I began realising my focus is wrong. The focus is not why men are not a part of animal rights movement. Instead it should be about how the animal abuse register will help make Britain a better place.

This meant, I had to, once again, return to the vision for the animal abuse register. As I examined the vision, stripping away, layer after layer, of what is the animal abuse register trying to accomplish. I realise, the animal abuse register is not just about protecting animals and it is not just about ensuring animals are homed with the right guardians. It is much more, it about protecting all of us and making a great society even better. It is tikkun olam or simply put, making the world a better place.

Animal Abuse Register: Why does Britain Need It?

Animal Abuse Register: Why Does Britain Need it?

Maxine Berry Interview
Maxine Berry being interviewed before submitting justice for chunky petition to DEFRA

As we are all aware, 8 June 2017 is the general election in the United Kingdom, which left the UK with a minority led Conservative government. For the Conservative government to be able govern they have entered into a Confidence and Supply agreement with the DUP. The DUP is, from our understanding, supporters of the animal abuse register in Northern Ireland.

So what is the the Animal Abuse Register? In its most simplest terms, it is an opportunity to stop animal cruelty by providing longer sentences and it is an opportunity to stop animal cruelty by tracking those who abuse animal through the register. It is a way of making animal cruelty more costly and riskier for those who chose to abuse animals. Form another perspective, it is a way of protecting society by removing those from society who abuse animals and ensuring they are not able to work with those who are the least likely to report abuse. It is a way of saying no to bullying and abuse.

Attached to this link is a brief guide about the animal abuse register. It briefly explains what the register is and briefly explains why it is needed. Other articles on this site provides a more detailed discussion and links to more in-depth information, including cost / benefit analysis about the register and political parties supporting the register. It is a great time to get our voices heard regarding the need for the animal abuse register and it is a great time to make the political parties aware of the need for one.

The Shocking Truth What the UK Political Parties Do Not Want You to Know about Their Support for the Animal Abuse Register

The Shocking Truth What the UK Political Parties Do Not Want You to Know about Their Support for the Animal Abuse Register

Journey Begins

In November 2015 Maxine Berry and Brian Berry started an incredible journey. Maxine started the Justice for Chunky petition calling for a UK wide Animal Abuse Regster Brian supports her by doing much of the background work. Their work is raising awareness by collecting nearly 600,000. Resulting int the Green Party making the animal abuse register their policy.

Now, approximately 18 months after starting the petition the UK government is calling for a general election. It gives the chance to get all 600,000 voices herd. In order to get all 600,000 voices herd we must act as a cohesive group. How exciting is that?

For Maxine Berry and Brian Berry it is quite exciting. Imagine if all of us who signed the petition vote and vote for the party that best supports the register? Imagine the change we can bring? Now, imagine having the the register? What do you see? I see 600,000 voices speaking in unison. The power of their vote ending animal cruelty. Their power, bringing longer sentences for those who commit animal cruelty and stopping those who abuse animals from working with the most vulnerable.

Need for Animal Abuse Register

Parties Supporting

maxine and chunky

During this time it is important each candidate and party will reflect on what is important. Politicians will talk about brexit, taxes, immigration; and benefits. These issues are largely impersonal issues that politician spin to gain votes. Politicians ignore issues that at are important to voters.

Over the last 18 months, we have reached out to all major parties including Plaid Cymru in Wales. We are grateful to Plaid Cymru and Bethan Jenkins AM for their work on the register in Wales.  Likewise we are thankful to the Green Party for their tireless support of the register and their help, has moved both of us.

Parties Needing to Take Further Action

Conservatives

Nonetheless Maxine and Brian struggle to understand why the Conservatives are not reaching out to them regarding the register. The register gives them the opportunity to look tough on an issue that impacts millions of voters. The register can give the Conservatives the opportunity to make Britain safer while protecting its most vulnerable members. Supporting the register can help the Conservatives deliver a sizable majority in Parliament.

Labour

Likewise, the register for Labour can help attract voters they may need while addressing a crucial issue that calls for a balance of rehabilitation, tougher sentencing, and protecting the public. According to recent polls Labour is approximately 15% behind the Conservatives and it appears Labour’s leader, from on media reports, is toxic to them. Supporting the register is one way for Labour to improve their image.

Lets Work Together

We are always willing to reach out to any party, to meet at their convenience, and to discuss an issue that impacts all of us animal abuse. Animal abuse is not a localised issue only impact pet owners and farmers, it impacts us all.

When you vote in the general election in June, remember so far Plaid Cymru in Wales and the Green Party in the UK are fighting to end animal cruelty through the animal abuse register. They are the ones that realise there is a link between animal cruelty and the chance the individual may become violent against another human. Just because there is a chance it does not guarantee that they will. Nonetheless, the register offers the opportunity to track those who abuse animals by placing them on register, identifying those at risk to provide them the help they need, and when a juvenile is involved providing the necessary support the family. By fighting for the register we are fighting to provide a better tomorrow for everyone, including the animals, in Britain.

Update 23 April 2017

Since writing the initial article regarding political party support the Green Party, as we understand, may not stand a candidate in Plymouth in order to support Labour. For Maxine and Brian this is disappointing. They wholeheartedly support the Green Party’s animal abuse register policy but are disappointed the Green Party attempt to support Labour. Reason for their disappointment lies in Labour’s lack of support for animal abuse register, in particular the animal abuse register is not a part of Labour’s current manifesto and they have other concerns regarding the party. This potential decision by the Green Party is making Brian and Maxine,  question Green Party’s commitment to the register. They ask their supporters to think about their decision to vote Green Party and what their vote will mean. In particular what their vote may mean if Corbyn is elected Prime Minister. Brian and Maxine hopes the Green Party will re-think their support for Labour and rethink running a candidate in Plymouth against Labour.

Update 2 May 2017

Maxine and Brian are still seeing articles about a potential Labour and Green Party agreement. We are disappointed and believe Green Party should stand on its own merits by using the animal abuse register as a way to attract voters. Instead of trying to reach an agreement regarding running of candidates to give each party the best chance at winning.

Update 11 May 2017

Today a variety of print media are leaking Labour’s manifesto. Whilst is is not a shock to us, it is nonetheless disappointing. Our disappointment lies in the Green Party trying to seek a “Progressive Alliance,” with Labour instead of believing in its own uniqueness. It is our concern by trying to align with the Labour Party and not run candidates in order to establish an alliance the Green Party will be damaged thereby hurting the animal abuse register cause. Another disappointment lies in the reports on Laobur’s manifesto there is nothing in it that call for animal abuse register. With just under a month until the general election it is our hope the Green Party moves away the “Progressive Alliance,” aspirations with Labour and focuses on winning seats in order to progress the animal abuse register.

Update 14 May 2017

I have looking through the tweets from the Green Party over the last few weeks. The focus is not on the animal abuse register and I am struggling to see any supporting the register. Instead the focus is on decriminalising sex work and immigration detention centres.  This leave me to question the commitment the Green Party has to promote the animal abuse register, to give a voice to Britain’s most vulnerable and make the UK more prosperous country. In the run up to the general election, I am hoping the Green Party refocuses its effort on the register and raise awareness of its need.

Update 16 May 2017

After reading Labour’s manifesto, I am disappointed. To begin with animal welfare gets less than 1/2 page attention and most of it is dedicated to large bold fonts. Another disappointment lies in Labour talking about increasing sentencing for animal cruelty but it does not state how much of an increase. Finally Labour manifest is silent on the animal abuse register.  If media reports are correct Green Party is working at forming a tactical progressive alliance with Labour, it makes me question Green Party’s commitment to the animal abuse register.

Update 18 May 2017

I have read the Liberal Democrats manifesto and in regards to animal welfare, I am impressed. The Liberal Democrats have specifically stated they want to increase sentencing from six months to five years for animal cruelty (page 5). This is a step in the right direction and it would have been better if there was a mention of an animal abuse register.

Update 19 May 2017

Yesterday, Conservative release their manifesto and it is disappointing. There is very little mention about animal welfare. Animal welfare only gets 1 paragraph on page 26 of their manifesto. Furthermore there is no mention of longer sentences for animal cruelty and no mention of the register.

Supporting Animal Abuse Register

Importance of Having the Register

dalmatian logo
Supporting animal abuse register protects those without a voice.

Why is supporting animal abuse register important? It is not uncommon in today’s media to read about animal cruelty especially to dogs or cats. Animals, in today’s society are seen as mere property, disposable like a bar of chocolate or last year’s cocktail dress. Such treatment by the law makes them mere objects, not worthy of protection through guardianship  Under the current Animal Welfare Act 2006 maximum sentencing for animal cruelty is six months. How fair is that?

Before answering think for a moment. Your dog or cat is a member of your family. They are there do greet you, they do not share you secrets, and comforts you in your time of need. If someone would hurt or kill that trusted member of your family, should they get a longer sentence?

Now think about the six month sentence under the Animal Welfare Act? Knowing sentencing for animal cruelty does not exceed six months, how does that make you feel? How does reading a story about animal cruelty make you feel? I am willing to guess, hurt, angry, confused; and may even emotionally numb. Thinking about the injustice leaves us feeling wanting to help but if we continue

Animal Cruelty Reminds Us of Bulling and Feeling Vulnerable

In many ways stories about animal abuse, animal cruelty, reminds us of a time being bullied or it brings up feelings of when we felt helpless. In many ways it reminds us of a time when were vulnerable or helpless; a story about animal abuse reminds us about a time when we did not have a voice.

Giving a Voice to an Animal in Need

What can one lone person do to have a voice and to give their voice to an animal in need? There is one thing each one of us can do and it is supporting animal abuse register. Supporting animal abuse register will do two things. First it will put the names of those who are convicted of animal cruelty on a register. By being placed on the register it will mean pet shops and breeders will have to do a search before a pet can be sold. Those who appear on the register will not be allowed to purchase and those who are trying to obtain a pet for someone who is on the register can face prosecution under the Fraud Act 2006. Since the person will be on the register it will mean any employment check will need to include a check against the animal abuse register and if on the register then it will be up to the employer to make the decision. Last point, having the register will mean reporting can be done and it can be used for identifying families at risk.

Longer Sentencing

Supporting Animal Abuse Register

Second, the register will lead to modification of the Animal Welfare 2006 to include tougher sentencing. There are some who feel tougher sentencing creates a warehouse where people learn to become better criminals. Society needs to be protected, especially from those who abuse animals. There is a link between animal abuse the more serious crimes. This does not mean everyone who abuses an animal will bully or commit violent crimes against another human. Nonetheless, the link does establish the need to protect society. Furthermore tougher sentences acts as a deterrent and for some, a longer sentence means the prison can provide them the support they require. Also it can mean if the offender is a juvenile then the family can be identified, monitored, and provided the support they need.

Vision for Register

Next, what does an animal abuse register look like? The attached document (click link), provides a description of the register, how it will operate, and a cost / benefit analysis. As we are getting this site up, more information can be found on our Facebook site. To answer the question, how to make a brighter tomorrow for you dog? Answer is simple support the animal abuse register to help end animal cruelty and make Britain a safe place.
