;) Seriously, why don't you start a campaign to reinstate all those other delightful country pastimes like bear bateing and cock-fighting?
If you and your ilk had accepted the will of the people back in 1997 and hadn't wasted so much time perhaps other issues might have been addressed - but no how dare anyone challenge you God given right to perform random acts of cruelty? The majority of people in this country want a ban on hunting with hounds.
[Pauses to here for the old 'Foxes are vermin' line]Yeah, funny how those who are quite happy to see another living creature torn to shreds start whining over a bloody nose or two. If this rabble had beards and turbans you'd all be clamouring for the re-introduction of flogging, the death penalty, transportation and the gibbet. :confused: I live in the country, and almost all of my older relatives have been in agriculture and I'm d*mn proud of it. Problem is, the same people who want us to shoot foxes not hunt them want tighter firearms law!
The idiots who rampaged onto the floor of the house need a good spanking as do the clowns who chucked the purple powder balloons and their Batman cohort.
These misguided buffoons give government the perfect excuse to rob us of yet more civil liberty :*When the quiet ones speak up the government brings out the iron fist. Glad another gaping hole in our security has been highlighted though.....
When I first "flipped on the Tube" I thought I was watching re-runs of scenes at Orgrave all those years ago.
That of course was a classic leftie versus righty clash.It's only been used three times since 1949 - the last time was to lower the age of consent for homosexuals to 16 in 2000.What is somewhat galling is that the fluffy "save the poor fox" brigade don't seem to realise that when the fox was hunted and killed by the hounds, the fox generally got away if it was fit and healthy.This one appears to be a not so classic, righty versus middley variation! :hmm: :cool: :hmm: I don't have any strong feeling one way or tother about hunting, although I dislike the idea of cruelty to critters no matter what they are, I just don't think this kind of demonstration does anything but give the trash in the news media something to fill in their endless hours and inconvenience the general public.Re the hunting thing, I remember watching a prog about drag hunting,seemed pretty much the same to me, lots of folks on horses with dogs charging across the countryside hooping and hollering, yet every time it is mentioned it is scorned by the hunting fraturnity, perhaps if they gave it a genuine try.hopefully they'll have more than just a coupla old farts with swords guarding the chamber in future? The protesters outside shoulda blacked up and carried foxes under their arms...... :p Nice to know a male policeman can still look a young law-abiding woman in her eyes (as just shown on C4 news) whilst she has her hands raised in the air and smack her straight in the doughie with his nightstick without a second thought.
