The politics of cruelty with David Cameron

Decency took a step back today by allowing an unelected David Cameron to assume office. His party won no mandate and has no  legitimacy is saying his manifesto stands. His pledge to repeal the hunting ban was an indication of just how far removed he is from decent society. Whatever Cameron may assume he is, he will never fill the shoes of the man he replaced?

So where does this leave our wildlife, well it’s not good the balance of numbers in the commons is tight. Yet there are no guarantees that Cameron will even honour a Free Vote, despite his pledge. For if he thinks he would lose his bid for repeal on a Free Vote he will make it a government bill. There is also the option of a Private Members Bill which would amount to the same result. His defence for such underhand tricks would be to say a commitment to repeal was in the manifesto or that he is supporting one of his MPs with legitimate concerns.

It’s also more than likely he will hide the repeal among other pieces of legislation. So it will be the case that if you oppose it, you would also be saying no to some sweetener that is added. Other moves could see the timing of the bill come into play. If they time it when they know the least number of MPs opposed to repeal were present. Then again the result would be bad.

Labour is short some 49 MPs of the Tories 307. Yet now with the Lib Dems added in it gives them 364. On paper that is a majority of 106. How the Lib Dems vote will decide the outcome. 30 have indicated they would support the ban. Yet that was on the assumption it was a Free Vote. It’s the same with the Tories. 14 said they would support the ban. Yet again if not a Free Vote would they? For to have a career in the Tories today you have to be pro hunting.

Labour MPs will step up to the plate and they will lead to fight against repeal in the Commons. Of that we have no doubt. Out of all the 258 Labour MPs it is expected only two would vote for repeal. So you can be sure we will be making their names known if that is the case. There is no justification for any Labour MPs to support animal cruelty.

The League Against Cruel Sports have come up with some numbers, now we have not had time to look at them in full to see which MPs they refer to. What is clear however is this is no time for thinking Cameron could not achieve his aims?

Of the new parliament according to the League Against Cruel Sports.

  •      251 MPs support the repeal
  •      254 MPs support the ban
  •      6 would abstain
  •      35 MPs have not declared which way they would go.

This will no doubt be a massive battle and there is much lobbying needed. If the figures are correct then it really is tight. Nothing can be taken for granted. The way the public can help is to keep raising it with their MPs and in public. Let others know that this is not a what if. David Cameron placed repealing the hunting ban in his manifesto and it’s no joke.

Put pressure on Nick Clegg, what is his Party’s policy. Will he abide by the will of the people or a stick to a dodgy undemocratic deal with Cameron? It’s not good enough for Clegg not to answer or to spell out his party’s position. We as Support the Hunting Act (BAN) UK and Fox in Parliament will be challenging him to do the right thing. If not then he is as bad as David Cameron. Campaign groups will mobilise but it needs you to help spread the word and get involved. We are looking for new bloggers and people to join us.

There are many positions within the campaign that need good people to fill. We are towards the Labour Party, so if you are interested it’s expected that you would support Labour being in office. For info send an e-mail to: back.the-hunt-ban@inbox.com

We always said a man who sees nothing wrong in animals being torn apart for fun is unfit to lead the nation. That is still the case, nothing has changed. We cannot allow the hunting lobby through David Cameron to dictate policy over our wildlife.

No matter the excuses they will use, no matter the lies they will dress up as reasons and no matter the desire of those that want to hunt. Hunting with dogs is wrong and has no place in our society. We will have one chance of stopping this repeal and we do need you.

Cameron thinks nothing of your view, he cares not that 75% of the population does not want hunting ban repealed. He is a hunter and of the worst kind. He is the type that has to be upfront for the kill. He is the type who gets that look of satisfaction and excitement just before the hounds tear into the fox. He is the type that thinks society is there for only the privileged while other people serve. He is the man who will ignore your democracy to suit himself and the interest of the hunting lobby. He is the man who will not represent you.

No matter if your views are Conservative, Labour or Lib Dem, Green, SNP or whatever. Your views against hunting will not be listened to unless we make him listen.

We are at a crossroads and it is our wildlife that could so easily be the victims. They have done nothing to deserve David Cameron and his pro blood sport chums. They only seek to survive. Why does anybody think they have a right to commit acts of deliberate animal cruelty in the name of fun?

We will stand against him and Nick Clegg if he backs Cameron and we will say no. The question is will you say no as well?

    “It’s also more than likely he will hide the repeal among other pieces of legislation.”

    If this true, then the unnatural Cameron/Clegg ‘marriage’ is doomed for divorce on the grounds of cruelty and deceit. May the fox hunters, the hare coursers, the stag hunters, etc., all rot in Hell.

    I most certainly will say no, and do what I can too both physically and online, it’s an absolute travesty that a man who wasn’t properly elected has marched into no 10 and is intending to allow OUR wildlife to be killed to provide entertainment for the sick minority. Sadly those who abstained from voting (i.e couldn’t be bothered) or voted tactically (i.e. wasted their vote)have made this nightmare situation all too real, why couldn’t they have used their votes for our brethren who can’t speak up for themselves and just voted Labour?

    I’m afraid it was announced today that if there was anything the Lib Dems disagreed with, they would abstain from voting. So there you have it. It looks as though the Lib Dems have sold their souls to the Tories, lock, stock and barrel.

    hunting with hounds is an evil barbaric form of animal cruelty.
    the hunting with hounds ban was put into place to protect our wildlife from this type of evil abuse that the conservative party called sport.i dont wish to see this ban re introduced due to the fact there is no room for this type of abuse in a civilised society.so my family oppose the hunting with hounds ban.

    To even consider allowing ruthless, barbaric,cruel and sickening out dated sports?suggests a man, or two..who are unfit to represent decent ,compassionate human beings. It is not just about fox hunting,although,this concerns me greatly of course,it is also about how he/they are showing the darker and sickening side of violence, aggression, and im sorry, where is the fairness?..If he/they are happy to allow this as acceptable, what is next?
    I PRAY that blood sports are NOT something,that can be passed off,as necessary,when it clearly is not,,it is a pompus,disguisting,old upper class tradition…farmers DO NOT NEED THIS..it is just another lie,fed to excuse a sickening habit..Did YOU KNOW, THAT THERE ARE PRO HUNTERS BREEDING FOXES, JUST TO HUNT THEM?

    It would seem that Nick Clegg wasn’t bothered enough about hunting to make it a sticking point in negotiations although at least it will be a non whiped vote. It amazes me that in the new coalition document that is supposed to be a ‘radical new aproach to politics’ they have included a provision for allowing a blood sport. It also amazes me that in the same document they say they will try and ‘promote high standards of animal welfare’… What a joke!
