Animal Rescuer Pen Farthing Insulted UK Officials So They Would Clear Kabul Airlift, Report Says
"Here’s the deal buddy", Farthing reportedly addressed Peter Quentin, an adviser to Defence Secretary Ben Wallace. "You either get me that f*cking ISAF number [‘An ISAF number’ is a military callsign which has not been in use since 2014, according to The Daily Mail] and you get me permission to get on that f*cking airfield or tomorrow morning I am going to turn on you. The whole f*cking country… is going to know that it is you."
"This selfish charade has cost lives", a defense source told The Daily Mail, while another defense source described the Ministry's help to evacuate animals from Kabul as "the first British Government explicitly committed to the idea of non-white people as equivalent to animals since the abolition of slavery."
'Why Is My Five-year-old Worth Less Than Your Dog?'
"You put his dogs and cats above the ten Afghan families that I’ve been trying to get into the EHC for the last 72 hours. You utter bastards. I will never forgive you", Herbert tweeted, tagging UK Defence Secretary, Farthing and the latter's charity organization, Nowzad.
so you decided to take pen farthing and the animals but leave the afghan workers and hundred of afghans who were supposed to get on that plane that was funded by him self what a shame. shame on you when you had the ability to save everyone who helped those animals— ellhaam😡 (@ellhaammahdii) August 27, 2021
So, to summarise: the cats and dogs are ok.— RedHerring (@CoastKerry) August 27, 2021
But the Afghans who worked with him have been left to be murdered.
I'm...not sure that this is the good news story your press office thinks it is.
"It’s not the aeroplanes that are the problem. There’s quite a lot of space on the aeroplanes", he said, cited by the outlet. "The difficulty is getting people into and out of the airport. And we have just used a lot of troops to bring in 200 dogs. Meanwhile, my interpreter’s family are likely to be killed. We run an NHS in the UK that taxes us all about one in seven pounds we spend. What would you say if I sent an ambulance to save my dog rather than to save your mother?’".
The whole team & dogs/cats were safely 300m inside the airport perimeter. We were turned away as @JoeBiden @POTUS had changed paperwork rules just 2 hours earlier. Went through hell to get there & we were turned away into the chaos of those devastating explosions. #OperationArk— Pen Farthing (@PenFarthing) August 27, 2021
