Subject: RE: BS: Hunting banned in England/Wales
Just becasue something is the law - doesn't mean people don't break the law. Just look at saturday 19th!

Well yes - I am sure that I would have accidently broke a speed limit at some point, driving my car on that Saturday and every other day. But according to the reports that I read - no hunts were breaking the law on that day - openly or otherwise.

But the argument for you to choose to support or not now - is whether to waste time and energy in trying to make the inflicting this particular sporting cruelty - legal again. If all the criticsm levelled, considers that it was not worth all the political effort of introducing this law - it is surely not worth the same effort to change it. Or is this yet another double-standard for the pro-sporting-cruelty lobby to support?
