Candidate complains “Your fox has no teeth” on Fox Tour

On what was reported to be the hottest day of the year so far, the Fox Tour headed west, into the North East Somerset constituency – formerly known as Wansdyke.

The most remarkable interview yesterday was with Jacob Rees-Mogg, the Conservative candidate. He said that he supported repeal, but when challenged that a repeal of the Hunting Act would bring back hare coursing and stag hunting too, he said he’d only talk about those issues if we brought a costume of that animal. He was also disappointed that Fergus the Fox had no visible teeth.

Today we venture deeper into the West Country. This is an area where hunting is sometimes regarded as something similar to religion, and yet we know from our vast number of supporters in the region, and from opinion polling, that support for the ban on hunting remains a huge majority.

    Good for Rees-Mogg, he had the balls to give his view, an honest view not just saying what the LACS want to hear, the Labour guy as usual exagerating those opposed to hunting.
