‘Cheap’ guns and cheap stunts

A couple of interesting articles in the press today.

First a piece in The Times on how the London gunmaker James Purdey & Sons has played its part in bringing shooting to the masses … by producing a ‘cheaper’ gun, at just over £31,000 less than half the price of their standard fayre.

Then The Guardian‘s excellent Media Monkey site tells us that Rebekah Brooks (née Wade), chief executive of News International and former editor of the News of the World and The Sun, is joining a pro-hunt ‘protest’ in the Cotswolds this Boxing Day with her new husband, Charlie Brooks. If ever there was a way of demonstrating how out of touch you are with the real world, then this is it.

Incidentally, we’ve already started doing pre-recorded interviews for Boxing Day, and we’ve got a big story up our sleeve. It’s interesting that all the bluster from the hunts about ‘imminent’ repeal is generating such wide interest, especially as it simply annoys the public who are widely in support of the Hunting Act and don’t want to see any more parliamentary time devoted to it.
