Although the Blackadder episode where Edmund has a cloak made out of cat fur is still hi-larious...

I know that news of the EU banning cat and dog fur trading isn’t quite the biggest victory ever, so far as stopping animal cruelty or the fur trade goes, but it’s still fantastic news. At the same time it does make me a teensy bit sad because, and I’m not sure if it’s just my impression or not, but it always seems to me that Europeans just care more about things than Aussies - they’re always having protests or writing petitions and things really do change. I know I’m as guilty of apathy as anyone else but it’s depressing not to see more Australians (including me) stand up for what they believe in.
