We’re not quite sure whether it’s a poor attempt at countering out hugely popular ‘Image of the Day’, but the Countryside Alliance have now being publishing a daily quote on their blog. They’re aged quotes from pro-’liberty’ columnists such as Polly Toynbee, on why they think banning hunting would be a bad idea.
The problem for the CA is that aside from those on the Dreary Telegraph, most of the columnists who once wrote of their opposition to a ban now support the Hunting Act. That’s why they’re using old quotes.
The Countryside Alliance should know better than most that just because someone once said something, doesn’t mean they necessarily think it any more. After all, they employ Jim Barrington who used to be a hunt sab, then worked at the League until 1995 and now works for both the Middle Way Group and the Countryside Alliance!
