While I understand what some are saying. Cause your right the breed wont be any different...only in the looks. But I dont think its so bad that people who love the traditional look, want to keep it and fight for it.
Seems here in the US we are slowly losing our rights on many things. I mean if they prefer that look, they do so for a reason. They find it to be very beautiful, in combination with the breed and all it stands for, which includes the crop/dock look, at least here in the US. That will always be the traditional look. and can mean a great deal to some people.
I think its great that so many people want to fight to preserve that tradition and right.I think it should be left up to the owner. And lord knows I would rather see a crop by a vet, then done by some fool out in his backyard. Sadly I have heard of people cutting dogs ears off with scissors. And I could be way off base here, but I do fear if it is banned that it will only cause more idiots to try to do it themselves.
I think it should just come down to, let the owners make the choice.
