The Prime Minister is in favour of Fox Hunting, and the Tories are heading for a landslide victory. Does this mean that Fox Hunting can come back during the next 5 years, especially with a Tory majority to stand unopposed on the issue?

Why yes, because that will be another way Saint Theresa of Strong and Stable will be able to bring the country together.

Well you wouldn't want the country to go back to the 1970s like under Labour, so we'll be bringing back fox hunting, leaving the single market and normalising xenophobia, like a modern, forward-looking country instead.

In a free vote, assuming a tory majority this time around I don't actually know which way it'd go. The new tory MPs will not be representing the safe hunting shooting fishing country seats, they'll mainly be urban/suburban seats picked up from Labour likely with small majorities which will give plenty of MPs pause for thought whatever their own opinions are on hunting, it's a divisive issue and the whole 'braying toffs on horses' thing won't play well in a run down mill town.

I think that would be a great idea. But give the defenceless Fox an automatic rifle and then see who still chases it.

As others write, it never stopped. The so-called upper classes in Britain have become very good at hiding their wealth and discretely getting on with running Britain plc.

Fox hunting is just the thin end of the wedge, she really wants to legalise hunting Dalmations.

I see the resemblance now you've pointed it out.

I'd be more worried about the witch hunts.

Thanks Tom. You made me laugh out loud.

A meet of the mink hounds today at the local pub, a most relaxed lunchtime pint in the sun, great fluffy hounds and terriers ambling about and eventually they all wandered off up the river - once they had a little swim! To be honest they all looked far too laid back to hunt anything (if they were allowed) but great to see some old breeds, the otterhound and sealyham type terrier in non-action.

I guess it isn't just fox hunting ban that would overturned? Though that is all anyone can think about.
