It’s a load of overblown bollocks, that’s for sure. But one thing this whole business has done is turn me from loosely pro-hunt (I grew up in the countryside, and have seen the damage foxes can do etc. etc. etc.) into really not giving a flying fuck about their cause. Especially after they fucked up the hillside near my parents’ place.
Without their pathetic pissing about there could have been a proper debate on the subject (perfectly legitimate parallels could be drawn between the pro-hunting minority’s fight to be allowed to do what they want to do and the homosexual minority’s fight to do what they wanted to do during the 1950s – both pursuits are seen as fine by the people who do them, but as morally reprihensible by their opponents).
But never mind eh?
