A thousand days to the Olympics

The 2012 Olympic Games open in London in a thousand days’ time.

A great deal will happen in the time from now until the opening ceremony, but one thing is for sure. Hunting will remain a key issue probably right up to and beyond the Olympics. And as hunts gather around the country for their opening meets today and tomorrow, it makes you think: if hunting is such a fantastic, wholesome, enjoyable and important sport, why don’t we make it an Olympic sport?

The fox could run around the athletics track pursued by the hounds. Hares could be coursed by greyhounds. Stags could be chased across the Epping Forest in some delightful spectacle of English ‘sport’.

Why not?
