England: 29/5/17 – Huge Turnout At London Demo Against Hunting Return.

Mums looking after their babies – the most natural thing in the World.

Humans, Foxes, Deer, Hares, whatever !

So why kill mum foxes and leave their babies to die back in the den ?

That’s why people gave the government gripe in London on 29/5 !

 

Excellent turnout sending a big message to the government.

For non UK visitors – we have a General Election here on 8/6/17 to elect a new government.  In the UK we have 2 main political parties – Conservative and Labour.  The Conservatives are basically the same as Republicans in the US – all about money, their interests and very little else.  Labour is a ‘normal mans’ party.  The Conservatives are currently the government under the PM Mrs. May. 

Labour was the party that introduced the hunting ban around 11 years ago.  May and Tories now want to try and bring it back – hence the demo in London on 29 and the several references to ‘May’ – this being T. May, the Prime Minister.

David Cameron (remember him ?) was the Conservative PM before Mrs May.  Cameron was a hunter; and the Tories are always really viewed as the hunting party of British politics.   Most now ask; with the hunt ban in place for 11 years; why do the Conservatives want to try and bring it back ?

Because Conservatives are looked on as the upper class; the land owners with a blood lust for hunting innocent wild animals.  Labour have pledged to fight to keep the ban, and improve legislation even more if necessary.  Labour is led by Mr. Corbyn.

So now we are into the last 2 weeks before the election.  A few months ago the Conservatives were way ahead, but now Labour are steadily catching up.  The Conservatives (Tories) have done a U turn on Ivory for example – https://serbiananimalsvoice.com/2017/05/26/uk-conservatives-to-u-turn-on-ivory-ban-please-take-action-before-the-8th-june-election/  — and are not at all animal welfare friendly.  Labour are the very positive.  Hunting of British wild animals is just one of many issues, but an issue that the British public feel very strongly about.  It will be interesting to watch how the parties progress over the next few weeks and who comes out eventual winner.  Many pundits say it will be the Conservatives, but they are very un popular because of a lot of their views on certain things.

We shall see and will report the result on this site.
