It might make you look better if you check the facts before using pen,

http://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2...-conservatives

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fox_hunting
Huh? you lost me, your first link has the text
"Under the Scottish ban, enshrined in the Protection of Mammals (Scotland) Act 2002, dogs can only be used if they are “flushing” foxes from cover towards waiting guns."

Your second link has the text
"An article in the Guardian on 9 September 2004 reports that of the ten Scottish hunts, nine survived the ban, using the permitted exemption allowing them to use packs of hounds to flush foxes to guns."

Did you mean to destroy StirB's argument by posting links supporting it?

I donno but if you walk the streets of London after dark you see a fox every other day... some are very tame, in that they will allow you to get to 5-10 away. And the occasional one will try and eat a baby #thesunsaidso
But you get your mate to drive you around with the headlights off, while you stand out of the sunroof, firing off your 12 bore and you get labelled a social nuisance.

There is no pleasing some people

Re: Thank fox for the SNP

It's quite funny how those backing her actually believe this is about the foxes.

Does anyone? Even the snp website mentions

"We are in a situation where the Tory government are refusing to agree to any amendments to improve the Scotland Bill - which are supported by 58 of Scotland's 59 MPs - and imposing English Votes for English Laws to make Scotland's representation at Westminster second class."

"In these circumstances, it is right and proper that we assert the Scottish interest on fox hunting by voting with Labour against the Tories' proposals to relax the ban - in the process, reminding an arrogant UK government of just how slender their majority is - just as we will vote against the Tory welfare cuts next week, and appeal to Labour to join us."

She's been quite open about it.

And that is what politics is all about. When will the SNP start taking seats over the border? Tomorrow Berwick-on-Tweed. Next week Islington North.

Re: Thank fox for the SNP

Hi,

personally I think the Fox hunting ban needs to be strengthened. Another alternative could be to replace the fox with a member of the hunt and let them be hunted by the dogs.

In 2015 I have no idea why people think chasing around on horses in red coats while trying to kill an animal is at all acceptable.

Have fun
Martin

Following your heartfelt post I have contacted the Royal Buckinghamshire Hunt.

I have good news for you, they have agreed to change their coats to blue ones.

A personal and irrelevant question, but I will indulge you. No, but I lived there.
