 Standing up for UK Field Sports

Standing up for UK field sports

SIR, - Despite organised demonstrations to show that massive rural interest in countryside activites in the UK, of which Farming is just one aspect, organised by the Countryside Alliance, the governement choose to ignore the feelings and the fears of therural 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 any parts of the globe, such as Italy and Russia for hounds, and surprisingly from a PhD student for guidance in the preparation for a thesis, along with request from schools to take part in discussions on foxhunting, which were referred on 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 arguments, are:  a, the quarry si 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 counryside activities under one umbrella, this means that old adage 'together we stand, seprately we fall' is very relevant.

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

This hosting webiste is deliveratly set up to ncourage business relationships, particularly to the countryside, and therefore making these activites more resilient in this currently polical cliente.
