Add your reasons for Hilary for why you back the ban

Labours new campaign to support the hunting ban is now in full swing. Here is your chance to add your reasons on why you think the hunting ban must stay. This is the first of our campaigns responses to Labour’s new campaign, launched today. So do look out for more articles today and in the coming week.

Hilary Benn MP: Secretary of State for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (DEFRA) is leading the charge against David Cameron and his friends in the hunting lobby. He has outlined reasons why Labour not only introduced the hunting ban but also why they are determined to support it.

The DEFRA Minister said:

“For David Cameron, getting the act repealed is a priority.

“He used to hunt foxes; he talked about fox-hunting in his first ever speech to Parliament; and he has said that if he becomes prime minister he will get rid of the fox-hunting ban.


“But, like the vast majority of people, I think that the barbaric act of letting dogs tear foxes to pieces shouldn’t return to our countryside.”

Hilary has set out an easy method via Labours back the ban website to show your support and have your say. All you need do is add you name and e-mail and your views on why hunting must stay banned. It’s quick and easy to do but it makes a difference.

It is open to everyone, so even if you are not a Labour supporter you can still have your say. It is very important that as many people who are opposed to hunting add their views and support for the ban.

So do not just fill in this page yourself, share this page link on social networking sites. Tell you’re friends and families that you have added your views and ask them do the same.

Our wildlife and democracy deserve so much more than David Cameron and the Countryside Alliance. This is your chance to fight back and say no to the hunters.


Here is the link just click on the image and below it is our comment we added as an example


 “There is not one signal reason for hunting with dogs; it serves no purpose other than the enjoyment of a tiny few. Labour listened to the people and was right to ban hunting with dogs. The thought of the Tories bringing it back is an utter disgrace and would bring shame on the nation. Animal cruelty in the name of fun is uncivilised and shows those involved lack basic humanity”

What else can you do?

Want to know what your MP or Parliamentary Candidate thinks about hunting? Do they support the hunting ban or do they seek its repeal. You may have a Conservative MP or a candidate who has not made his views known.

Well you as the voter have a right to ask questions and this automated e-mail lets you achieve just that. All parliamentary candidates will be automatically asked the same question so from Labour, Tory and Lib Dem.

All you need to do is add your postcode and e-mail and await the response from them. It’s a great way to let those who want to represent you know what you think. Again it’s open for all to use and you do not have to be a Labour supporter to use it.


We hope you will consider supporting the Labour candidate if they are anti hunting. The future of our wildlife hangs in the balance if Cameron was to get his way. The more people in Parliament who care for animals the safer they will be.

Why not pass on any comments you receive from the candidates, we have been compiling some of the responses and will place them on Fox in Parliament soon.

Same goes for any comment you add-on why you want the ban to stay.

Of course after you have submitted your comment to the back the ban website first.

We will put them together in an article just send them to :


We are winning this fight to stop animal cruelty returning. David Cameron can be stopped and the hunting lobby are the ones on the run not the fox.

    As someone who was born in the country and who also worked in the country as, amongst other things, a Gamekeeper and in Pest Control, I know only too well that the Hunt’s excuses for persecuting Foxes just do not hold water.
    Quite apart from all the unnecessary pain and suffering they cause, their totally random selection of any old Fox on the day, has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with pest control.
    As a hunter for many years, I fully understand that animals are part of our diet and so I personally have no problem with the practice of shooting for food. What I do find abhorrent though, is the hunt’s practice of killing animals for fun.
    The idea that this is a class struggle is obviously just a smoke screen, because anyone who stands up today against Fox Hunting, was I have no doubt, like myself, also totally against all other ‘killing for fun’ practices in the past, like Dog Fighting & Badger Baiting and these were hardly what you would have called games for the toffs. These others have rightly all been outlawed now and so should Fox Hunting.

    Society advances the more it stands upto needless animal cruelty. The ban may seen an interuption to a tiny few in what they want to do. Yet it should never be a question that they have a choice.

    Animal cruelty for fun has no justification and those that back is show they are not part of decent society.
