Thread Name: BS: Foxhunting Banned.
Subject: RE: BS: Foxhunting Banned.
Naah; keep foxhunting! It kills about four or five rich and aristocratic bastards each and every year! Just find a way to subtly raise the height of the fences and gates! Seriously; I've lived in the countryside almost all my life, and I know that hunting is supported only by the monied classes in my part of the country. It would still be wrong if, like cock fighting, hare coursing, bull-baiting, bear-baiting, badger digging and dog fighting, it was a working man's pursuit. However you look at it, it's about taking pleasure in cruelty and suffering. The only reason it still exists is because powerful and unelected people were able to prevent the same fate as the other alleged sports. I look forward to seeing if the forces of law and order take the same scale of action against the proposed civil disobedience as they took against the miners. Sigh...prejudice now suspended, rant mode off, back to nice guy...
