Petition - Do Not Repeal The Fox Hunting Ban - Yes, the Conservatives are having another go..

Back in March 2015, David Cameron said he was committed to a vote on a repeal of the fox hunting ban. He said "“The Hunting Act has done nothing for animal welfare. A Conservative Government will give Parliament the opportunity to repeal the Hunting Act on a free vote, with a government Bill in government time.”

I cannot imagine what he thought that reintroducing hunting would do for the welfare of foxes...

Because of opposition to it, the Government dropped their plans to put the repeal before the House last year.

In February of this year Cabinet Office Minister, Matthew Hancock, renewed the Tory manifesto pledge that could see Labour’s Hunting Act repealed, saying the party was “committed” to it.

There are 106,201 signatures to the petition thus far. You can sign it if you have not already done so.
In a modern, civilised society, there is no place for this grotesque and cruel pastime. The previous government banned the practice, but the new government is planning to legalise hunting foxes using dogs. This is a barbaric and outdated activity that should stay where it belongs - in the past.
We have a choice in this life, we can be kind, or we can be cruel. I think the choice is easy...
