Quote:

The Prime Minister promised a repeal on The Hunting Act 2004 in his manifesto but now realises that he cannot risk a free vote on repeal as it is likely he would lose.

Instead of respecting the democratic view of the majority of the population (Over 80% in the most recent poll) who are against hunting with dogs Mr Cameron has found a way to force through unwarranted changes that will once again allow animals to be ripped apart by packs of dogs in the name of sport. Animal abuse is not sport!

Mr Cameron has decided that rather than having a fair and democratic debate he will slip through an "amendment" before the summer recess and because it is a statutory instrument it will be rushed through with only 90 minutes of debate. This is an insult to democracy. More than 80 percent of people in the United Kingdom are against hunting with dogs. To ignore them is unfair and undemocratic. Please allow a full and frank debate with time to discuss this barbaric and archaic practice.

Mr Cameron has put the idea to his partys 1922 Committee and the statutory instrument is now due to be rushed through next Wednesday 15th July 2015. If passed by MPs, it would go to the Lords for debate in the autumn which is why we are petitioning them too. If approved there, it would take effect immediately, so the new regime would begin this winter.

Please sign this petition and support us - NO AMENDMENT TO THE HUNTING ACT! #noamendment #keeptheban

It's not about fox hunting, it never was. When the scots vote against the bill it plays into his "english votes for english laws" agenda.

I can't see any point to the bill otherwise (foxhunting being a pointless exercise imo with much better ways of controlling fox populations if necessary).

This has always been about politics. There's no more totemic issue in the UK regarding class than this one. It's about f******g tory scum riding about the countryside on horseback, dressed up like characters from some 18th-century novel, proclaiming that they own the f*****g country and can do whatever the f*** they like, including watching a pack of dogs rip a fox to pieces.

And it was a shrewd move by the SNP to get involved. This is perhaps the only issue where they could "meddle" in English-only legislation and not alienate the majority of the English people.
