 Standing up for UK Field Sports

Article published in The Scottish Farmer 14th June 2008 in section Farmer YOUR VIEWS

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 publication of had a reaction from the anti-hunting groups in terms of language which defies decency.

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

It is tragic to say that a government such as we currently endure, is hell bent in systematically destroying the rural minority. The arguments 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 acitivities under one umbrella, this means the old adage 'together we stand, separately we fall' is vey 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 by also strengthened.

This hosting website is deliverately set up to courage business relationships, particularly to the countside, and therefore making these activites more resilient in this currently political climate.
