More from the League Against Cruel Sports (LACS)

I am not a member of the League Against Cruel Sports (LACS), but I receive 'stuff' from them from time to time. Today's 'stuff' includes a video praising the role of Ann Widdecombe in supporting the Hunting Act 2004 which banned hare coursing, fox hunting, stag hunting, etc.

Here is the link to the latest 'stuff' which includes a good video:

The LACS website also encourages on-line comments and I have commented as follows:

"Ann Widdecombe is a real heroine. She defied the monsters of her Tory party and she voted to ban hare coursing, fox hunting and stag hunting. She and most Labour members did the right thing and they passed the Hunting Act 2004. Now Tory 'Dave' and his still unchanged and still nasty Tory party - including Nick Herbert, the 'shadow' Defra Secretary, and James Paice, the 'shadow minister of agriculture' - want to repeal the Act and to bring back those so-called 'sports.' Shame on the b****y Tories."

Here is the heroine (right).

And here, below left and right, are the less than heroic men who want to bring back barbarism.

I taught Mr Herbert how to write minutes when he worked at Conservative Central Office in his youth. I wish now that I had not wasted my time. He is cruelty's Trojan horse in a political battle that is otherwise conducted by a better morality and higher standards. Mr Paice ought also to know better.
