concertina ceol Folklore: Appleby Horse Fair: A Tradition Too Far? (244* d) RE: Folklore: Appleby Horse Fair: A Tradition Too Far? 29 Jun 07


I have no emotional or political investment in this thread. I was in at post five but have not read this post since.

I don't support animal cruelty, but I don't campaign against it. Accepted behaviour is not always rational. Hunting with hounds is banned (which I think is a good thing), Fishing is not banned and no campaign of any profile to outlaw it - well that's just weird.

However, violence against the person is against the law, and the threat of violence is unacceptable in a civilised society.

Maybe I'm a (youngish) hippy, but to Grimmy and the Snail.....
....chill out, have a beer (or cup of tea if you are teetotal) and relax....
