One of the worst laws we have. Roundly ridiculed by supporters and opponents alike, as well as the media, this act fails to achieve a single positive objective. Bad for animal welfare, bad for business, bad for jobs, bad for the landscape and bad for libertarian values.
It took 700 hours of time and there have been very few prosecutions, but a great deal of time and money wasted.
Love hunting or hate it, this Act was tailor made for Mr Clegg's proposal to rid the country of bad law.
