So if Mrs May gets her way fox hunting could be coming back to Lewes If a fox hunting bill gets through, I'm hoping people in Lewes will still think it unnecessary and will organise against having it back on Boxing Day. Thoughts?

I really don't think Ricky Gervais has a clue as to why this is important to the countryside. He just sees a cute little animal - rather than vermin.

Okay frak Let me spell it out to you. Your concern appears to be less the welfare of the fox and more the type of people that enjoy fox hunting (ie., toffs as you put it) which you find objectionable.
Of course, it's not toffs that enjoy fox hunting, but is enjoyed by many people including those that do not own horses. Your assumption is frankly baseless and your argument a non starter.

What kind of sick pervert are you? I'm talking about fox hunting and you're thinking about bestiality.
As for murder, please do me a favour. Is it murder killing a rat or when a cat drags in a bird whose heart it's ripped out? I appreciate the only exposure you've gotten to a fox is the soft toy section of wickle, but these things are pests. So no, it's not murder.

If foxes are killing ones chickens then it just proves that one is not looking after them well enough and shouldn't have them in the first place.

That's your opinion and you're welcome to it. But fox hunting doesn't cause you any harm. By legislating against fox hunting, we've become a nanny state that infringes upon people's rights.

I think blood sports are one of the few things where we need a "nanny-state" to prevent utterly needless and insane cruelty towards defenceless animals. There are so many "hobbies" and things to do in this country that don't involve violence or the death of another living, breathing mammal. Far more rewarding and interesting as well.
If you need an outlet for your violent tendencies, play Grand Theft Auto or Call of Duty. Or hit a punching bag. Stop taking it out on those that can't defend themselves.

@ Mike Hunt -- hunting infringes on the animal's rights, or don't you believe animals have rights? Would you like to see the return of bear-baiting? Or cock fighting? Or dog fights? You probably would.
There are many more humane ways to deal with the fox-as-vermin problem, and hunting isn't an efficient method by a long chalk.

Justifying fox hunting by saying they are vermin is ridiculous. If you have rats, do Rentokill turn up in fancy dress and on horseback, corner a rat, then rip it limb from limb whilst it is still alive? No, of course they don't, because as well as being cruel, it would also be f'ing stupid, wouldn't it Mike!

No I wouldn't like to see the return of dog fights or bear baiting. They're completely different because one is breeding an animal for its own destruction. Once again it goes back to the fact that foxes have no natural predator and have to be managed. The death as a result of poison, shot or trap still result in a long painful death for a fox. And in terms of rights, no foxes don't have rights. You clearly have no concept of how the countryside is managed.
Your obsession with sexual arousal and fox hunting is quite disturbing. This is clearly
more of a reflection on your own warped
mind than anyone else's, you need help. It also demonstrates you have no argument and have to resort to some form of juvenile insult.

MH, did I say anything about not being concerned about the animals welfare? No. I just pointed out that riding around in red coats blowing a bugle with a load of dogs is probably not the best way to deal with problem foxes - and it certainly isn't the most humane.
What is it exactly that you like about fox hunting?

Your focus was on 'toffs' as you put it. You gave no mention to welfare of the fox, the implication being that the welfare of the fox is secondary and that you're distaste is really around some non existent concept of class in fox hunting. If your concern is for the fox, you'd be able to provide evidence on here as to how you've tried to stop other methods of killing foxes that are far more painful and prolonged. Traps for example where the fox will often limp off and die days later from gangrene. But I suspect you can't.
The question isn't so much why am I in favour of fox hunting, rather that why is it that someone who appears to be in favour of democracy is happy to dictate to others what they can or can't do when there's no harm to you. If you don't like fox hunting, just ignore it.
Anyway, it's largely an irrelevant discussion as it's an almost certainty that the Tories will win a landslide and have enough votes to repeal the law. As a result, the Boxing Day Hunt will soon be back to its former glory.
