Shock as CA reveal that someone once said something

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!

Image of the Day – 84

The League Against Cruel Sports celebrates its 86th birthday this month. This image, we think from the 1950s or early 1960s, shows a League supporter with the carcass of a dead fox killed by the hunt. The poster next to which she is standing includes a list of activities the League wanted to see illegal. It’s very satisfying to know that they are all now illegal.

Our Keep Cruelty History campaign is vital to ensure that we don’t turn the clock back to the horrific cruelties of yesteryear.

A hind at bay in a quarry, filmed by our team in 1992. It’s about to be killed, in a practice which would become legal again if the Hunting Act is repealed. Help us to Keep Cruelty History.

From 1992, the body of a hind killed by the hunt is ‘dealt with’ by hunt followers.
