So, who was that vile woman with purple hair (and megaphone) at the hunt?
I do not wish to know her name, but I am keen to know if she actually lives in this town and if that hair colour is natural?!

She's not as vile as the murderers on the horses though.

I agree Foxy, however those on the horses openly display their activity, that other person assumedly masquerading as a Lewes resident clearly cannot claim that same honesty.

Proclamations and their validity comes to mind. Why travel to another town to witness something you didn't want to see?

The fact that these hunt supporters keep banging on about her is in itself a victory. Their guilty conciences have been rattled. Excellent.

Now there's a thing. I love democracy.

That purple haired woman with the megaphone is the personification of bigotted intolerance. Heaven help us if her and her ilk ever held the reigns of power. In comparison fox hunting almost seems benign.
Much as I loathe the taking of any love for pleasure, banning and disruption is not the way to change things. All this does is to create a pressure cooker, complete with the inevitable consequences of leaks and explosions. Education and open discussion is the best way to deal with the insensitive brutes who revel in the taking of life. It would soon become socially unacceptable to be a fox hunter or game shooter.

We had a Big Haired woman holding the reins of power once. Just rejoice and be thankful she's gone. She didn't need a megaphone, thank heaven we had TV remotes then.

I'm against fox hunting and I am glad there is a law against it. I enjoy the spectacle of the annual meet.
Makes sense that Megamouth is from Brighton as her cheap behaviour made her stick out like a shightonithumb!

Either there was a collective of the organic flapjack munchers of Lewes or rent a mob were in town.
Foxhunting is banned by Law and now the hunts follow a scent trail.
WTF is wrong with that?
IF there is concrete proof that once away from the town the Hunt actually hunt a fox instead of following a trail then by all means pursue this and report to the relevant authorities. If the hunt has permission to use land for following a scent trail then again, what is wrong with that?
The boxing day hunt has been a tradition of Lewes for many many years. The hunt has adjusted to the implications of the hunting act and thus complies with the law unless someone can prove otherwise. In basic terms a fox is no longer being hunted and hacked to bits, and a group of horseowners have adapted and kept their pastime going . I'm against fox hunting as it happened previously before the law changed - if you need to dispatch a fox then do it quickly with a gun.
They are "chasing" a trail, complying with the law, exercising their horses and keeping a tradition alive. Let them get on with it and concentrate on more important stuff rather than find a pathetic excuse to cause aggro!

I couldn't agree more, the problem is that the anti brigade don't seem to understand that they no longer actually hunt the foxes. They are too busy screaming blue murder when they'd be better off checking the facts or having a bit of a wash.

All this drag hunting talk. It's all a smokescreen. They still "accidentally" kill foxes and any other unfortunate animal that gets in the way.

Basil, you are quite right. Foxes are still killed, but it is done within the law (only two dogs present). They are still dug out when they go to ground, and then tossed to the dogs.
I never come into Lewes on Boxing Day as my blood boils thinking of those murdering twats on the horses.

The law actually says they have to be shot after being flushed out. It's a stupid piece of legislation as there is no need to use dogs at all. Just go out after dark with infra red sights. There is no excuse for hunting with dogs to control fox numbers. NONE
