Policing Minister on the Hunting Act

In a House of Commons written answer earlier this week, the Home Office minister David Hanson was asked about police enforcement of the Hunting Act.

In reply he said: “The Government are clear that the Hunting Act must be complied with as we cannot pick and choose which laws we obey in a democratic society. Ministers have been in regular contact with the Association of Chief Police Officers who have stated their commitment to enforcing the hunting legislation.”

    That isn’t actually true. We moist certainly can pick and choose what laws to obey. We can refuse to obey the stupid ones such as the Hunting Act.

    There are many laws on the statute book that people don;t obey and the police do not enforce.

    I openly break the Hunting Act on a regular basis with the full knowledge of the police and the Government.

    I enjoy pursuing deer with my dogs and I won’t stop.

    The police choose not to make me obey the law and if they have the right to do that i do not see why I should not have the right to break it.
