England: David Cameron Prime Minister Is About To Sabotage The Hunting Act.

England

UPDATE – Monday 13th July 2015

For the ‘non Brits’ who visit this site; here is another angle on foxhunting – is it as ‘essential’ to get it back as David Cameron thinks ?

– the reality says NO:

Brian May to lead fox hunting protest on Parliament ahead of vote to water down ban

The Queen legend and animal rights campaigner will lead a rally outside Parliament against the watering down of the hunting ban

Dr May and his animal trust ‘Save Me’ will be there, along with PETA, the League Against Cruel Sports and Humane Society International will head down to Westminster to urge MPs to keep the fox hunting ban intact.

But why might the ban be revoked, where are the protests taking place and how can I get involved?

Where and when is the protest?

The current legislation makes it illegal to hunt foxes with dogs

The protest will take place tomorrow at Old Palace Yard, SW1 Westminster, at 11am. That’s directly outside the Houses of Parliament, where the statue of Richard Coeur de Lion is.

Why not tell the world you’ll be attending, by joining the Facebook event?

Brian May is also suggesting you rally your MP to the cause by asking to meet them on the day to make your argument to them.

You can contact your MP by finding their email address/ office phone number here.

David Cameron has made no effort to hide his opposition to the hunting ban, writing in the Countryside Alliance magazine earlier this year: “There is definitely a rural way of life which a born and bred Londoner might struggle to understand.”

I have always been a strong supporter of country sports. It is my firm belief that people should have the freedom to hunt, so I share the frustration that many people feel about the Hunting Act and the way it was brought in by the last government.”

What happens on Wednesday?

Before the election, David Cameron promised a free vote on scrapping the Hunting Act altogether – a vote he would most likely lose.

But on Wednesday, MPs will get a free vote on whether to let a pack of dogs “flush out” foxes , rather than just the two allowed now.

Critics believe this is an underhand way of repealing Labour’s 2004 fox hunting ban without having to completely overturn legislation.

If passed, it may mean packs of baying hounds could be back chasing ­defenceless foxes by Christmas.

Because it’s a free vote, it means that Tory MPs don’t have to vote in line with their party policy- and with a slim majority anyway, this could mean a very close vote either way.

That’s why it’s important that if you don’t want to see the barbaric sport of fox hunting be introduced back into UK culture, you need to get on to your local MPs by writing and emailing them, and joining in the protests tomorrow so that Westminster has to listen.

Clifford Pellow, who hunted for 23 years, spoke to The Mirror about he supports the ban after exposing the full horror of the hunt.

The ban on fox hunting was introduced 10 years ago, in 2005. It bans hunting foxes with dogs, and also deer, hare and mink.

It was introduced by the Labour government, which is thought to be one of the reasons David Cameron and the Tories criticise it- because they feel that it shouldn’t have been a priority for the government at that time.

Scotland also banned fox hunting a couple of years before England, and has separate legislation on the matter.

The act bans the pursuit of foxes with dogs as it is seen as inhumane and a cruel blood sport- a fox is no match for a pack of dogs and hunters on horseback.

Notable supporters of the ban include Ricky Gervais and Brian May, but it also has some notable opposers, like Prince Charles (who said he “might as well leave the country and spend the rest of his life skiing” if hunting was banned.)

Andy Burnham also slammed the Tory “back door attempts” at creating law around fox hunting which was impossible to actually enforce.

Are the SNP voting on Wednesday?

The changes to the law don’t actually affect Scottish legislation- they introduced their fox hunting ban earlier and separately to us.

SNP MPs don’t normally vote on issues that don’t affect Scotland, but a spokesman for the party has said today that they will examine the precise details of the proposal before deciding what to do.

How else can I help?

One thing that you could do quickly and easily is sign a petition against the watering down of the fox hunting ban.

This Change.org one urging David Cameron not to change the ban has nearly 500,000 signatures , or this 38 degrees petition has nearly 100,000.

This one, asking the government not to make any changes to the ban has over 53,000 signatures.

Or, you could sign all three.

Vote against cruelty

We are calling on our readers to tell their MPs to vote NO to an amendment of Labour’s Hunting Act on Wednesday.

Things are going absolutely mental in England over David Cameron and his attempt to overturn the current hunting act which has been legislation for the past 10 years.  He is just doing this in a pathetic attempt to please the hunting fraternity of which he is one – sort of look after your mates and stuff the people who are anti hunt.

It is impossible to keep track of it all things are happening at such a rate.  Lots of demos planned everywhere – including Parliament in London over the next few days.

Some Conservative MP’s (Cameron’s party) are so worried about what he doing that they have formed a group called ‘Conservatives Against Fox Hunting’.  Read some of the comments on their Facebook site (link below) to see just what a real gripe the English have as a whole about ripping foxes apart using a pack of hunting hounds.

David Cameron is hated by a large contingent of the English, despite being ‘their’ Prime Minister.  Maybe this time his off the cuff brainwave will sink him well and good – lets hope so !

  1. I consider hunters as insane murderer!
    Seen from a biological perspective, this caste is one of the prehistoric apes, which have missed the development of their own kind and have remained on the trees!
    In a highly civilized society they would be delivered in a mental institution for the rehabilitation of its spiritual deformity!
    In uncivilized societies they go in the beer garden of their villages with the smile of cretins, and they have their pictures taken with the bodies of their victims in their hands, so that our successors do not forget that even nature makes its mistakes and produces biological and moral deformities.

    I come from a hunting family and I can say with certainty that if my father had not hunt, he would have killed my mother.
    I cannot say for sure what I would have preferred, the fact is that I care about my good name today, and people who kill animals are highlighted in red and struck in the list of my friends.

    Even my father!
