Anti - Foxhunting Demonstration in Ramsgate

Regular readers will recall my post on foxhunting and on South Thanet Conservative candidate Laura Sandys refusal to state her personal views on the subject. I have been advised of a demonstration to protest at Laura Sandys failure as on so many subjects to give a clear line of her opinions on foxhunting, as she hides behind a Conservative Central Office standard letter. Mrs. Thatcher would have said she was "frit."



The demonstration is being organised by Barbara Woodrough, a long time anti-fox hunting and animal welfare campaigner. It will be at 11am on Thursday 18th March outside the Conservative offices 7-9 King Street, Ramsgate.



An overwhelming majority of the British population oppose foxhunting, in a democratic society elected representatives should reflect this, not favour the views of a small minority of people just because they are members of their friends or family.

  1. I doubt if I'll be voting Tory, mostly because of their pro-hunting stance (I probably won't be voting Labour either though!).

  2. Perhaps Roger Gale who has built a career on his dedication to animal welfare will join Barbara and her group next Thursday.

  3. I have only one view on foxes, 'come near my chickens and watch out for the 12bore'

  4. Anon 19.58 that's fine by me, it's the humane way, not watching an animal teared into pieces for sport.
