Fox Hunting

Asked if there were any plans for the foxhunting bill to come forward any time soon the PMS said that the situation had not changed since the last time the question was asked.

  1. Another broken PROMISE by the labour party.

  2. This is one of those bizarre issues…

    I’m sure the whole of London gets up in arms over foxhunting; lower-classes vs. upper-classes and city-vs-country divisions are obvious.

    It is *really* hard for me to stomach the idea of pushing a decision on foxhunting on the people living in the countryside – knowing full well what it will do to the jobs in that sector – on people who don’t want it.

    So devolve it. Pass it on to local councils to decide. Except that doesn’t sate city calls for the bloodletting of the bloodletters. It is, however, probably the right thing to do.

  3. Foxhunting is ALL about people getting some sort of thrill/enjoyment out of seeing another creature being torn apart by dog`s.These people have a sickness of the mind.And some call this civilised!!!.How is it that human being`s are the only spices that kill for the sake of killing!!!.If foxes have to be controlled there are more humane way`s then hunting using dog`s.

  4. Agree with you George; it is below the level of accepted behaviour in a supposedly civilised country – I guess that’s why it’s an upper class sport; depravity means nothing if you are rich enough…
