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.
