Thanks for the boost, Tony.

Hunting is undergoing a revival with increasing numbers of women and children taking part as a direct result of the ban imposed by the Hunting Act.

As 314 hunts were preparing to meet organisers report that in the two years since the ban, young people have attracted to the sport, reversing the situation of more than a decade ago where hunt memberships were ageing and in decline.

Good work boys.

Now, can you please ban Christmas? We could use the boost.

One of the strange dichotomies of the English who in earlier days generally treated animals better than their children. Oh well, let's not be dismayed; the slave trade wasn't abolished in a day. I've nothing against killing or eating animals, but calling hunting a "sport"? Shaw said it best; "The ineffable in pursuit of the inedible."
