Putting aside the political stance of the standard, I would have hoped that the party, that caim to be the only party capable of negotiating Brexit,  would have enough strength in depth to allow Mrs Rudd to take a few days off.

anyone bothered about bringing back fox hunting ? 

personally i rather like foxes as they come to our garden daily 

The chairman of the Dulverton West Foxhounds Supporters Club told Somerset's County Gazette: "The Tories promised us there would be a vote before the last election and they let us down then. I think this is just a ploy to get farmers and hunting people on side.

"The Hunting Act has never worked and needs to be repealed, nothing is done to control foxes now. It is a case of town people trying to tell country people, who have lived on these lands for generations, what to do."

IMO, Fox hunting is barbaric. AFAIC, it has nothing to do with keeping down the numbers, and everything to do with having a jolly good romp.

I would. Bloody stupid idea. Hit someone until their brain smashes into their skull enough times to cause swelling and unconsciousness...

The fox population does need keeping an eye on i will agree. I don't think that dressing up in red blazers and drinking champagne before one goes out is important. If it needs doing, do it humanely, not for a jolly knees up for the toffs...

So no understanding of that either, then.

I would be delighted if you could enlighten me as to why beating someone unconscious and causing brain damage is a good idea...

I suppose you might extend this train of thought to footballers too , who of course have had brain damage from headers

"Dawn Astle, the daughter of former England and West Brom striker Jeff Astle, who died aged 59 suffering from early onset dementia, said it was "obvious that it [his dementia] was linked to his footballing career".

The inquest into his death in 2002 found that repeatedly heading heavy leather footballs had contributed to trauma to his brain."

As an ex horse rider who lives in a County with lots of hunts I'm in two minds.

I have never ridden with, or supported, the hunt because I don't believe hunting with dogs is an efficient way of controlling foxes.

The local farmers loose many lambs to foxes and they will wipe out chicken roosts given the chance. So they need to be controlled in the same way as no one would accept a rogue dog killing cats or kids.

A pest controller (whether a farmer, homeowner or official) will shoot rogue foxes more efficiently than the hunt but unfortunately only after they have killed their target and have been identified and their runs marked.

IMO poison should never be used as this is a really painful death and kills anything that eats the body.

We don't have rural foxes.

Back to the politics, I don't understand why May brought this up. In a big fox hunting county it is never discussed and an issue that has been put to bed. Why shake the tigers tail?

Smacking the shite out of each other is so noble isn't it?

Well one could argue that foxes could choose to just kill to eat, not kill indiscriminately.
