Subject: RE: BS: Foxhunting Banned.
Yeh well I guess if thats really all Oscar Wilde amounts to in your eyes....an obese paedophile.....I feel sort of sad for you.

On a brighter note. Lets hope Charles and Camilla make a stand about hunting , carry on, and they get slung in jail. that really would brighten up 2005 for me.

Unfortunately unlike in Wilde's day they don't have hard labour. Now that would be some sort of new experience for people who know their station in life and that of everybody else's.

Charles's comments and the widespread reaction to them, of course merely underline what I was saying in another thread about this banning of hunting just being a piece of class revenge for all the humiliations of the Thatcher era.

My god if ever a class asked for it....

The total failure of the pro hunting lobby to take on board the point of view of the majority has been astounding - given that they must have the best legal brains in the country on their side. They have been very badly advised.

they keep repeating that hunting isn't cruel, which is an argument they have lost - the majority has decided otherwise. They should have moved on to the point that yes it may be cruel, but other cruel activities are permitted in our society and ours should be one of them - months ago. I really can't understand it.
