UK? England: Government Gives Up On Hunting Free Vote – British Wildlife Is Safe !

Brilliant news – no free vote in the House, and so to all purposes,  the Hunting Act will now stand no chance of being repealed to return to hunting with hounds.  Talk in the pub about it tonight – everyone happy that British wildlife is safe from those in the pinks (Redcoats).

A new poll reported by The Independent today shows that 85 per cent of the public support maintaining the current ban on hunting with hounds.

Public opposition to fox hunting remains at an all-time high, new polling figures released today reveal.

Polling carried out by Ipsos MORI1 commissioned by the League Against Cruel Sports, found opposition to the legalisation of ‘blood sports’ – the hunting of foxes, hare and deerremains high across Great Britain, with 85% of the public in support of keeping the ban on fox hunting, including 81% of people living in rural areas.

The polling figures come at the end of a turbulent year for hunting, where the Government’s announcement to offer a free vote on repealing the Hunting Act triggered a public outcry, causing the issue to become one of the most talked about during the election, and the National Trust also coming under fire for continuing to allow trail hunting on its land.
