    It’s a little odd that you appear to have struggled to grasp the proper use of the English language yet you have the ability to abbreviate the word please.

    Anyhow the gag itself was mildly amusing even if the way you went about it wasn’t.

    It is fine to kill thousands in Iraq, at a cost of BILLIONS. (Think of how many grammar classes that would fund!)

    It is fine to support a super-power that only this week allowed the resumption of assault weapon sales to its high streets. While fighting terror, of course.

    It is fine to allow humans to be killed at a stage of gestation that would enable them to survive outside of the womb. A fully functioning foetus has no rights, that would impose a duty on women, and we couldn’t have that now, could we. Women get it all these days, just ask Batman!

    It is fine to kill millions of cattle in the foot-and-mouth crisis. No nose-pirced ” Living Marxism” sellers turned up in those dark days to lament the mass-burnings at the burial pires. Why would they have. Nobody wore a scarlet coat.

    It is fine to neglect the aged and the homeless while the money goes to the MOD.

    It is fine to neglect the education of our children, to sell off the playing fields so the Fat get Fatter, and the fat get fatter too. While denouncing obeisity of course!

    But god help you if you dare to enjoy a day’s hunting, you cruel, barbaric savage!!

    Moron.

    I’m thrilled fox hunting is most likely going to be banned. Where’s the fucking enjoyment in letting 25 dogs tear a fox apart? Could you please fucking tell me that?

    I think I make up a vast proportion of the country (or should that be townies) who aren’t really bothered, one way or the other. Its not really a sport, maybe they could use artifical robot foxes or something? Kinda werid to get a kick from killing something though, just for the sake of it.

    Why is it that people always presume the enjoyment comes from the moment at which the fox is killed?

    The truth is that nearly every day of the hunting season a lone huntsman (it is a professional title) goes out and, using the hounds, dispenses with a ‘nuisance’ fox.
    Sometimes he is followed by members of the public on horseback who belong to a ‘hunt’ and dress in the traditional ‘hunting’ gear, which seems to cause so much offence to so many people because they somehow associate it with being a ‘toff’. The most popular occasion for this traditionally is around Christmas and New Year.

    The ‘kill’ itself is not at all the reason why the followers follow a hunt on horseback. It is the partaking in a tradition which unites man, horse and hound in a unique experience, one in which the rider witnesses a relationship between the animals that he would never otherwise witness. The horse reacts to the presence of the other horses, which in turn react to the sense of purpose in the hounds, and what results is not an excitement of which anyone should be ashamed, but a bonding with the natural world.

    Rarely do the followers on horseback even see the result of a ‘kill’, if indeed one is made.

    It is a subject which is so misunderstood, over-politicised and, above all, over-sentimentalised, and should not be interfered with on ‘gut-reaction’ or for political gain. There are, as I tried to indicate above, plenty of topics to debate where, I would suggest, cruelty IS an issue.

    Kristian clearly disagreed but, alas, lacked the poetry to express it with dignity. Sorry for him.

    You’re an idiot. Find a way to unite horse, man, hound and whatever in a unique experience without murdering foxes by tearing them apart.

    It’s also tradition to execute people by beheading in Saudi Arabia…

    P.S. Kristian, I see you are danish and into videogames and basketball. Might I suggest you may be a little lacking in experience of the english countryside and its traditions to offer quite such a vicious attack. It may be a little more humble of you to educate yourself on the subject first before resorting to the ‘F’ word. Tak skal du have!

    I am not an advocate of capital punishment in any form, in any country, but I find it hard to equate the seriousness of capital punishment to bona fide pest control.

    If you are suggesting on philisophical grounds (which would be a welcome step) that a fox should share the same ‘absolute’ rights as a human being, then we must simply disagree.

    I do not wish to be condescending in any way, sincerely, but the subject of human dominion over the animals is dealt with exquisitely by Ernest Hemingway in his studies of bullfighting, another subject which divides modern society. Might I recommend ”Death in the Afternoon” to you, or ”Dangerous Summer”?
