    Labour 'To Push Through Hunting Ban'
    The Government is to force through a ban on hunting within the next few weeks, it's claimed. Anti-hunt MPs say they have been given "very clear assurances" from ministers that a bill to outlaw foxhunting would be put to MPs in the next two weeks.

    Well lads, and lasses, here we go again!
    Just you wait and see, there's probably some govermental **** about to hit the political fan and the anti-hunting furore is going to be the smoke screen!
    What me? Cynical? Naahhh.

    Ron,
    According to the news last week, this is a position that has been forced on the government. Rumor has it that it won't be a total ban, but one with restrictions.
    One spokesperson for the Cheshire forrest hunt gave a pretty poor defence for foxhunting.
    When asked why does a fox run away from the hounds, is it thinking oh goody I haven't had a good run for ages, his reply was, that it is instinct for them to run away.
    This all entails hunting with dogs. Which includes hair courseing. The aim of this so called sport is to see how many times the dog can make the hare turn.
    My own argument for this is then why don't the dogs wear mussles? or is the hair squeeling with delight when it is caught?
    Most hunting done on horseback is purely businessmen rubbing shoulders and nothing else.
    As Oscar Wilde said, The unspeakable in pursuit of the uneatable.

    Another thing,
    When asked why not get somebody to shoot the foxes as it would be quicker, the huntsman said because it would cost too much.
    Rubbish, there are plenty of people who belong to gun clubs and are perfectly good shots, who are allways on the lookout for shooting rights. As I said he gave a very poor defence.

    OK, a hunting ban will inevitably go through.

    How is it going to be policed? The police have far too much on their hands than to spend time stopping a few people and dogs chasing a fox.

    Most people I know who live in this area who hunt foxes tell me they will carry on doing it and b...ks to the Labour Party, police (some who fox hunt are police officers) Blair and all the rest.

    Exactly Ron, this is the one reason it will never face an outright ban.

    The point is that nobody has the right to stop hunters hunting. They are not harming anyone, you dont have to watch and other than sentimentality and the cuddly, furry animal b******s, there aint any reason to stop it. The same people who are spouting on about cruelty have probably got fridges full off battery eggs and take their kids to mc d's every week!

    What else would you expect from a labour party made up of shop stewards, ex communist party members and ban the bomb relics.

    What really worries me is that they get in for another term, then the mucky stuff will really hit the fan. They will interpret it as having carte blanche to do just about anything they want from hiking taxes to banning anything that might be pleasurable, including fishing.

    Make no mistake this ban on hunting will go through for sure by fair means or foul and then the pressure will really be on us. Its the obvious logical step for the anti's and I have no doubt that the labour government will cave in to their pressure, they always do.



    Politicians, like diapers, have to be changed frequently - and for the very same reason

    Exactly Graham.

    That's why I have never supported the Labour Party.

    Fishing is not safe with them.
