Thread: Fox Hunting Ban maybe relaxed

    Fox Hunting Ban maybe relaxed

    David Cameron is backing calls to relax the ban on fox-hunting in England and Wales, it emerged today.
    The Prime Minister has 'sympathy' with calls to scrap a law banning farmers from using more than two dogs to flush out foxes, Downing Street said.

    It would mark a first step towards the coalition fulfilling its pledge to stage a free vote on repealing the controversial law altogether and follows reports of a surge in fox attacks on sheep flocks

    I believe this will be put to vote in parliament. Do you think there will be a sufficient amount of supporters for this to go through? I'm not so sure.

    All well and good, but what is needed is a public campaign that will impact on MPs in Westminster. We need all the persuading ammunition we can get such as foxes attacking children in there prams, foxes coming in to cities and towns in search of food. And here is the big one, how are we going to change the attitude of the BBC and its leftish prejudices that we are so used to on such programmes as Countryfile remembering that the RSPB is in cahoots with them all.

    A campaign to repeal the fox hunting act will be just as big and vociferous as the campaign was to ban it.

    ​I look forward to a good argument

    I'm sure someone can conjure a caustic anagram out of 'the return of the mounted field' ; I'd welcome a return to coursing and for sure the fell hunstman, but some of the mounted nuggets really take the biscuit, a welcome return to hunting foxes ... it's not universal. S

    I'll believe it when it happens. Looks to me like the Conservatives have started their 2015 election campaign already...
