I'm 50/50 on the old fox hunting.
On one hand I've got a visceral antipathy to the red coated buffoons and the stupidity of hunting foxes that way.

On the other I find the creeping death of the continuous erosions of freedoms in the UK grim, and foxes are vermin that kill my chickens.

Chasing foxes around the countryside on horseback accompanied by a pack of hounds is a stupefyingly inefficient way of controlling 'pests',
and half the time the hunters will try to defend their 'sport' by claiming that they hardly ever actually catch a fox.
I agree that genuine pests need to be controlled, but that's never really been what fox hunting is about.

Also, destroying people's gardens if that's the way the hunt goes.

That too.
It's a myth that everyone in the countryside is a fan of their local hunt.

There used to be a gang from Walsall who would contact the Hunt Saboteurs Association to see which hunts they weren't opposing that week so as not to give them bad publicity. Then they'd go along, dressed in overalls and crash helmets, drag hunters off their horses and give them a kicking.

Totally with you on the eroding freedoms mate.
A favourite hobby of mine as a lad was drowning puppies. I took my son out the other day to drown his first litter but I got stopped by a policeman. Apparently the liberal PC queers have decided that it's cruelty to animals. You couldn't make it up.
