I sit here and listen, and as the wind changes the muted roar of a crowd of pro-hunting protestors reaches my ears.

Oh for a small explosive device.

Re: Hold on a minute...

I see where you're coming from, but some creatures are so underdeveloped that the concepts of life and death are most likely well beyond them.

Re: Hold on a minute...

Perhaps if we just hunted protestors (in any form) instead?

Oh, please don't blow up my mother. I know she disagrees with you and is occasionally a pain in the arse, but I don't want her to die just yet.

You're safe - I'm an armchair activist with neither hand grenade nor Batman costume to hand with which to make my point.

I despair at the need of most people for “titillation” from cruelty. As evidenced by the popularity of the News, which offers everyone, a ringside seat to the cruelty of life in glorious live action Technicolor.

Banning the News (or such negatively biased reporting) would actually make a positive difference, unlike banning fox hunting.

There are two things..

1. Is fox hunting cruel?
Some people think it is, others don’t.
It would be interesting to see (I have no info on this) how long fox hunting has been considered cruel by significant numbers?

2. How much good it will do? (Banning it)
I mean this in the grand scheme of things. When compared to how much good could have been achieved by focusing the countries limited resources (including pressure groups, protesters and fanatics) on other areas.
Than again we could be living in a world where the worst that can happen is fox hunting.

I bet that they'd be appalled by the suggestion that gangs of town-folk dress-up in fancy costumes and ride through the streets and local gardens on dirt-bikes, whilst tooting fog-horns and setting packs of dobermans on local stray cats.

Aha, so you've visited the High Peak, then?

I'd prefer a return to the days where we could ride around and shoot trespassers on our land, actually.
