UK: Conservative Party Wish To See A Return To Hunting After 11 Year Ban !

Above – Blood Junkies – Huntsman Bloodbath.

We have had a hunting ban in the form of government legislation here in the UK for approximately 11 years.  Even today, around 84% of the British general public want to see a continuation of the hunting ban.

 

It took many years to bring about, and resulted in the deaths of several anti hunt campaigners.  We are proud to have done our bit regarding the ban.  But, as we pointed out in fairly recent posts regarding the old Prime Minister (PM) David Cameron, there has always been a wish by a certain sect of the Conservative Party to repeal the ban and return to hunting wild animals with dogs.

 

Just this week (May 2017) David Cameron’s replacement, Mrs May, has announced that she would like to see a return to foxhunting.

This disgusts us.  Fortunately the UK has a General Election this June and so people can now inform potential candidates how they feel about any possible repeal of the hunting act.  The ‘League Against Cruel Sports (LACS) is already well prepared for the fight and is working very hard on a campaign.  See news here:

After 11 years we do not want to see a return to British wildlife being killed and destroyed by the blood junkies of the pro hunt lobby.  We will do al we can to fight any change in legislation, but like many things the voice of the people is not really what counts – it will be left to the votes of a few hundred politicians in the Commons.

If it does ever return, Hunt Sabs will be back out protecting wildlife, as they always have done in the UK.  Without doubt, as in the past, things will get nasty and sabs will end up being killed by the blood junkies.  Is this what we want in 2017 ?

 

The Prime Minister, Theresa May, made a recent announcement:

 “Personally, I’ve always been in favour of fox hunting.”

However, the British public have made it very clear in the years of Tory rule that they do not agree with her outdated opinions. It’s time to tell May that her ‘personal’ opinions are not representative of the country she is paid to serve. 84% of the population have shown support for keeping Labour’s 2004 hunting ban in place, don’t let May repeal this important piece of legislation.

The practice of fox hunting involves setting a pack of dogs on a fox and then chasing it on horseback, usually in traditional dress. The “sport” is to many people a vicious and outdated pastime, and the idea of repealing the ban put in place by the Labour government, so that people like May can hunt and kill helpless creatures, is a horrific one.

Please sign this petition to show the Prime Minister how archaic her view is on the topic of hunting for sport, and show your support for the animals that the ban currently protects.
