I've posted this on the latest "BASC bashing" thread. But I'll post it here too:
Countryside Alliance this, Countryside Alliance that. Well listen to BBC iPlayer for "Newsnight" of 18 November for what the CA says about shooting:
BBC iPlayer - Newsnight - 18/11/2014
41 minutes in. This from Anne Mallalieu President of the Countryside Alliance: "Nobody gives a thought about the suffering of foxes....what's actually happened to the foxes...because of the growth of commercial shooting...foxes are being shot at night by lampers...people with bright lights shooting them with guns.."
So do people here still really have this nonsensical idea that the CA is something that it is not? A friend of shooting? You're having a laugh!
It is in reality nothing more than the the old British Field Sports Society - a houndsports lobby - under another guise? And that, yet again, shooting is thrown up as "the villain" of the piece?
