Fox Hunting

A comment from Josephine White.
If the hunting ban was genuinely motivated by a love of animals, I might have had some sympathy. Gracious, no-one approves of cruelty to animals. But the Bill was purely class driven. In a toss up between a few dead foxes and the right of Rural England to selfdetermination, Rural England wins hands down. The anti-hunt campaigners do not know what they've done. Whilst they mayhave muzzled the hunting dogs, they may well have unleashed the far nastierdogs of civil war. Remember that poem about the Saxon and his plough?
The Countryside will not forget this... Ever!
Indeed, Ed.
