Given most of these activities take place in the countryside it would be a pretty safe assumption that most are tories though there are a few liberal areas in south west.

Added to that is Labour are seen as the group who introduced the Ban pretty sure with Liberal support and some urban Tories .

The Countryside Alliance is very much a tory based organisation .
One of my best photos - so I might as well take the opportunity to post it! This was the 'Fight For the Fox' when Cameron tried to have a vote on making hunting lawful again. And then, when it became clear that he was going to lose the vote - he pulled the debate on the morning it was going to happen. A clear indication of his running away from difficulty habit that so clearly later manifested itself the day after losing the Brexit vote.

Oh but it has, I would say this group aren't really interested in Wheelbarrow racing/Foodbanks as such, this was done to 'block the hunt' and they're now full of glee about it on their facebook pages.

Definately more quick thinking.
How stupid do you have to be to forget to apply for something you do every year. twats.

I think they are a corrupt bunch of cronies but don´t feel the need for such venom.
When their arrogant and cruel actions have brought hardship and misery to many decent hardworking people it’s no surprise there’s such venom.

This is what Lewes has now.

The political representation on Lewes District Council is:
Green - 17 councillors
Liberal Democrats - 15 councillors
Labour - 9 councillors

Not a single Tory....reckon this lot are about as anti Hunt as you can get.

My opinion which no doubt will not go down well with most NSC ers. Is the Hunt meeting at Christmas is a spectacle and a tradition I would like to continue.
Also I prefer the supporters of the hunt (not the Hunters) to most (and again not all) of the Saboteurs
Do you feel that you’re missing out as you can’t ’tug your forelock’ to the Lord of the manner.

Whilst we're posting pictures, as good as your shot is Bodian, I think my one just trumps it as there's anti Tory signs in the image :D

Do you feel you are missing out with your lack of understanding of the English language?

But do you understand or even feel any venom for Blair lying about weapons in Iraq?
Both were terribly wrong and Blair the "nice guy" has earned millions since then the *****.

Nice whataboutery.

I didn’t agree with the weapons in Iraq lies and also student fees for that matter. But to equate this to the wholesale, widespread and systematic lies, corruption, abuse of power, provocation and just plain meanness of the past few Tory years is nonsense.

I have seen so many posts from you about all sorts of subjects and have come to the conclusion that you must be an arrogant person who is the leading authority on everything including pretentious beer and wine tastes.
Think I have read enough of your posts so will ignore your s***e in future.

Maybe the Southdown and Eridge Hunt can have their little meet elsewhere this Boxing Day…..Southdowns in the middle of a field or even Eridge. :smile:

I provided a reasonable explanation, you provide this. Why can’t you provide a sensible response to my post? Do you have one?

PS when have I ever claimed to be an authority on wine? I have always said the opposite if anything.
PPS a leading authority on everything including alcohol to, er, more alcohol ……now that’s a very broad list isn’t it? :thumbsup:
