I find it difficult to see anyone in favour of a repeal as anything but heartless.

I've abstained not because I don't agree with the content, but because I don't think there is any need for Parliament to be saying it doesn't believe something should be repealed.

I agree. Why do you say no meenu? Are you pro-hunting?

I am neither. I just think it is one of issues where the Government shouldn't be telling people what they can/ cannot do.

Nay. Foxes regardless; it is a godawful piece of legislation. If you're going to legislate on this; do it properly!

No this is completely the opposite. Why should any human have the right to take an animals' life for sport?

No. The government shouldn't intervene. If people want to hunt then they need to be allowed to.

Why? If I want to hunt you, should I be allowed to purely on the basis of preference? The libertarian argument is unfounded, you should not be allowed to do anything you want to do. You should be allowed to do anything that does not harm the liberty or livelihood of others, human or animal.

Ridiculous. Hunting has been a part of life for thousands of years and in many countries today still is. Hunting is part of the group of things that anybody should be allowed to do.

Simply using a declarative doesn't provide you with an argument, the onus is on you to explain what right any human has to take a life for pleasure? It doesn't matter if it is a practice that Tories love to do when they're not shooting the poor, cultural practices do not excuse the inhumanity of it.

Oh no Tories shooting the poor, not an exaggeration at all. Many Cultural practices today are inhumane, yet you have no issue against them because of your liberal agenda. You're very hypocritical.

Hypocritical? Can you give me an example of something I'm not against that makes me that way? Of course the above is an exaggeration, I'm just struggling to see why you and those who think it is OK to hunt and kill another life see any justification bar that old reference to 'tradition'.
