 Standing up for UK Field Sports

Farmer - Your View


SIR, - Despite organised demonstrations to show that massive rural interest in countryside activities in the UK, of which Farming is just one aspect, organised by the Countryside Alliance, the government choose to ignore the feelings and the fears of the rural community.

In point of fact, the publications of has a reaction from the anti-hunting groups in terms of language which defies decency.

Inceasngly, it was observed that support from many parts of the globe, such as Italy and Russia for hounds, and surprisingly from a PhD sudent for guidance in  the prepation for a thesis, along with requests from schools to take part in discussions on foxhunting, which were referred on to the Master of Foxhounds Association.

It is tragic to say that a governement such as we currently endure, is hell bent in systematically destroying the rural minority.  The arguements are:  a, the quarry is torn alive, which we all know is utterly fallacious and b, that we are a 'class' above everyone and in consequence we are outlawed. is a creation to further bind all countryside activities under one umbrella, this means the old adage 'together we stand, separately we fall' is very relevant.

Make no mistake, this is a very serious attempt to counter the appalling ignorance and stupidity of those who should know better, and that rural interests, commercial and otherwise, are not only maintained but also strengthened.

The hosting website is deliberately set up to encourage business relationships, particularly to the countryside, and therefore making these activities more resilient in this currently political climate.
