The erosion of democracy due to the actions of the hunting lobby


“Those who rely on freedom must uphold the rule of law and have a duty and a responsibility to do so and not try to substitute their own system for it.”
The above quote is from Margaret Thatcher. The hunting lobby would do well That's enough of your gamesto heed these words.

Protests are part and parcel of the democratic process. When a government does something or passes a law that an individual or group disagrees with then it is a sign of a healthy democracy that protests take place.

What is not healthy is the flagrant disregard for the rule of law. That path leads to anarchy.

Every one of us has an obligation to our neighbours and communities to respect our democracy. There are due processes and these must be adhered to.

In this aspect the hunting community is behaving irresponsibly. They are flouting the law. We all know what they think of the Hunting Act – but they are not above the law and only damage the agreement between the people and government by their actions.

How the hunting lobby sees the issueIf a future Conservative government repeals the Hunting Act I will not be happy. However, that is how our democracy works and I will restrict my protests to democratic, and lawful, means.
