The new designs see four subjects that might be seen as twee, transformed into a much more contemporary reincarnation - the same vision as five years ago. This time I opened up the brief to both country and city life, choosing two icons from each - a bird, deer, red telephone box and black cab.

We represent the vast majority of the British public who abhor the killing of animals for 'sport'. People should realise that if they support fox hunting, then they support the violence and gut-wrenching horror described above, and that they are going against the will of the public. And we need police authorities, in some cases, to start taking all this more seriously.

When people think of shooting, for some it conjures up nostalgic images of strolling through the countryside, taking in the views, and a delicious roast at the end of the day.

The fact of the matter is that the Hunting Act is a poorly thought out and ineffective law. Most people from all sides of the debate and none now acknowledge this. Parliament needs at some point to revisit the law with a view to repealing, revising or replacing it.

Foxes in the Barn - There's Nothing Natural About This 'Wildlife Management'

The League Against Cruel Sports' discovery of 16 fox cubs held captive in a dark barn, just 200m from a fox hunt's dog kennels, will be shocking to many - but those who have campaigned against hunting for decades will hardly be surprised. Saddened and upset, yes, but not surprised.

Keep Cruelty History - Protect the Hunting Act

Contrary to pro-hunt propaganda, the Hunting Act was not brought in to stop people killing foxes (or deer, hares and other mammals traditionally hunted with packs of dogs); it was brought in to stop these animals being killed in the cruellest of ways.
