Fox Hunting Ban

The views of some people wanting to repeal the fox hunt ban and how this can be listed under civil liberties is Sick Sick Sick!!!  As it is the same as saying 'I should be allowed to beat my dog to death if I want to because of civil liberties', I presume they do beat their dogs if they want to under their 'civil liberties'.  On the one hand these sick people say hunting is pest control, on the other it is a sport and social occassion, so which is it?  A government which allows animal cruelty to be classed as civil liberties is an absolute shameful disgrace, sick and absurd, we are not in 1562 but 2010!  The government should think very carefully  before even entertaining this subject!!!

Why is this idea important?

The Hunting Act should be repealed.

As a law which has absolutely eroded the liberty of those who hunt, which a Government Inquiry confirmed had no purpose and which has seen many ordinary law abiding citizens having to fight criminal charges the Hunting Act should be first law on the list for repeal.

Stop wasting parliaments time trying to repeal animal cruelty laws

No one on here is saying that livestock should be treated badly, dog fighting laws should be repealed, the RSPCA should be abolished. So in principal we agree that part of being a human is to be compassionate to 'lesser creatures' as I keep seeing animals referred too. 

Yet we are suggesting that we take up constitutional time debating other ways of being cruel to animals as if it is some assault on our civil liberties.

If we agree that we should be humane – keep livestock in good conditions, not tortures our pets, not neglect our animals and not mistreat the family budgerigar then it is inconsistent to say that certain animals and practices are civil liberty issues.

They aren't.  

As a society we have already accepted  humane treatment for animals as a standard – if it isn't humane you can't do it – simple really!

End the ban on hunting with dogs

The hunted fox has a chance to escape. With the law as it is a bullet is the end. Foxes are vermin. Vermin like foxes have to be eradicated as they take animals higher up the food chain (lambs, piglets, chickens etc) which farmers are trying to produce for our consumption. If we hunted rats would people care? As recently demonstrated in Hackney with the attack on the twin girls by a fox, they are NOT like fluffy pet dogs but vicious predators who's numbers need to be controlled. Hunting with dogs is a tried, tested and succesful method of control.
