So there it is. the Hunting Ban is official. Not even Tony’s vain attempts to keep it from messing with the election were a great surprise.
To be honest, I really don’t care. Neither side appeals to me. The Countryside Alliance are selfish bastards who only became interested in rural problems when their “sport” was in danger. Anti hunt campaigners are clueless as to the realities of country life and can’t comprehend that foxes are still going to be killed- and in ways just as inhumane- because they’re a danger to livestock.
There are more important issues in the countryside (transport, jobs, agriculture) and the country (do I really need to start a list?) that have been ignored because of the fuss over a cause championed by minorities on each side.
