There is no case for repeal. Hunt numbers are up all over the country. Drag hunting is legal. The sense of community, pageantry, heritage, and jobs are all still intact and yet these disgraceful people can’t manage to enjoy themselves unless they are terrifying and killing animals.
Please if you support the hunting act, get your name on the R.O.A.R. (Register Online Against Repeal), an ‘all party’ list at: http://www.campaignfordecency.org.uk
Thanks, I agree, there is no other reason to repeal this law other than to pander to those who want to continue to use class as a reason to divide us.
Instead of Conservatives they should be called the Animal Terrorism Party, much more appropriate. Sadly Andrew “Turnip” will almost certainly get in again on the Isle of Wight as he is in the pocket of the Countryside Alliance who wanted to keep the hunting debate quiet and sneak in a repeal when they think we’re not looking. His response to me was that he believed that Halal food production for Muslims and Jews is crueller than terrifying a fox by ganging up on it with men/spades/terriers and horses. Perhaps they should send an MP out as quarry one day pursued by a group of hoodies and see how they feel.
Your Tory MP sounds like a complete idiot. Comparing the cruelty of hunting foxes to that of Halal meat production is like saying : rape is less cruel than murder, so lets legalise rape and just concentrate on murder. With this logic, it is no wonder the Tories have lost that double digit lead in the polls. I’ve voted Tory all my life as have most of my friends and business associates but none of us will vote for them now that Cameron has made this pledge and they’ve swelled their ranks with the pro-hunt community. It pretty much sums it all up when the key requirement of a shortlisted candidate is that they hold pro-hunt sympathies. Not something one would consider a ‘human’ quality on a C.V.
Have some hope though. The Isle of Wight consistently comes up first on our top twenty list of constituencies (for people who have signed our campaign register). It even surpasses Brighton – so there is massive anti-hunt support on the island. If the Tories manage to repeal this act, we will need to mobilise anti-hunt groups and supporters from across the country to join together and boycott all products from farms and businesses involved in the hunts (including those who allow hunts to ride on their land). Then the Tories will realise that 75% of the public (in rural and urban areas) really do support the hunting act.
