Hunting campaigners call on Mowat to 'make his mind up'

First published in News

HUNTING campaigners turned out in force in the town centre at the weekend calling on Warrington South MP David Mowat to ‘make up his mind’ on the issue.

Hunting with packs of dogs has been illegal since 2005 but the Fight Against Cameron’s Cruelty Trust (FACCT) group believe Prime Minister David Cameron will call a vote soon on changing the regulations.

The Cheshire group distributed 1,000 leaflets asking whether the MP will ‘reflect the views of the Warrington South voters he was elected to represent’.

Chris Clayton, from the group, said “MPs who support hunting are stuck in the past and out of touch with voters.

“We would like newer Conservative MPs like David Mowat to move on and focus on issues like jobs, education and the NHS, rather than using Parliamentary time to help David Cameron’s hunting friends.

“It’s up to David Mowat to tell the voters where he stands.”

In the words of Freddie Mercury

"...Anyway the wind blows doesn't really matter to me, to me..."

If 70s pop isn't your thing perhaps a bit of Gilbert and Sullivan

"...I always voted at my party's call,
And I never thought of thinking for myself at all...."

While in a quote mode how about definition of huntng (Wilde I think)

"...the unspeakable in full pursuit of the uneatable ...."

The fox just loves being torn limb from limb dontcha know.

How the twin claims about hardly any foxes being killed by hunts, when this barbarity was lowed and it being the most efficient method stood up, I have no idea.

All nonsense mate. I just think how dull the bond films would be if our hero was shot straight away instead of being monologued and chased by gyro copters

Foxes are vermin. I'm not really for the slow death but they should die nonetheless.
