Giles Bradshaw | Posted 31.03.2014 | UK Politics
Giles Bradshaw

Surely we need an open and honest debate about the evident problems with this law and it needs to be sorted out one way or another. We need a sensible piece of legislation which clearly defines what it prohibits - the Hunting Act does not and which is based on animal welfare considerations not bigotry.

Exactly Who Are The Fascist Bullies?

Paul Vale | Posted 03.08.2013 | UK Politics
Paul Vale

Had the anti-fascists spent a minute looking at the BNP protest they would have seen 50 tired, haggard middle-aged men barely worthy of a passing car horn let alone a huge counter demonstration. Some of them could barely string a sentence together. I asked one man waving a flag why he was there. "They're killing our soldiers, aren't they..." He could offer no more by way of reasoning.

Oppose the Whippenscott Deer Cull

Giles Bradshaw | Posted 10.04.2012 | UK Politics
Giles Bradshaw

There is currently a golden opportunity to get the Hunting Act changed as David Cameron as called for a free vote on it. I very much hope that it is before the police finally take action against me. Until that point I shall continue proudly refusing to kill any wildlife on my property as I believe should be my right.
