Thread Name: BS: Foxhunting Banned.
Subject: RE: BS: Foxhunting Banned.
I was reading the (strongly anti-hunting) Guardian recently and it pointed out that a majority of hunt supporters are not aristocrats at all. This was something I had worked out for myself, as it seems unlikely that the 400000+ people who rallied in London a few years ago were all toffs and their dependents. Farmers and workers in the countryside get out of their overalls and into their pink to go hunting and immediately look like an 18th century aristocrat. Result is a pavlovian snarl from the left!
