    Notes

    Show
    The Hunting Act 2004 is little more than an infringement of personal liberties based on class stereotypes under the guise of animal rights that is either ineffective in its purpose or not very strictly adhered to, more likely than not the former.

    While there has been, on average, a prosecution under the hunting act every 10 days or so very few of these prosecutions require the Hunting Act, and debatably many are incorrect to make use of the Hunting Act, as the vast majority are cases of Poaching. Further the cases that are seen are often a waste of Court time and the repeal could save millions a year on needless legal cases.

    The Act is primarily seen as the protection of animal rights, however it, at best, does very little to this end and is quite possibly, ultimately, damaging to some of the species 'protected' by the Act and potentially worsens the suffering of some of these species that are now killed by other means.

    This is one of the easiest nays I've ever given. As TitanCream and others have pointed out, we should do more to improve animal rights, not hinder them.

    Surprised you didn't get thehistorybore to second this time round!

    Probably a Nay. I abstained last time but I need to check my reasoning as I think there were certain provisions last time.

    If it were up to me, I would have said nay, but judging from the above comment — abstain is best.

    Can't blame me for Saracen's Fez not fixing formatting after the copy and paste, it also doesn't hinder animal rights, as has been explained in the prior debates.

    Can't exactly get the seconding of an absentee, can I?

    Given their fairly clear support, having seconded every time before, should you not be following their implicit wishes?

    As soon as I can get in touch with THB, I shall ask myself. Until then, it'll be an abstain as I do not know their opinions on it myself. I wasn't following the house previously, and so I am not aware. Sorry for poor wording there. If they wish to say differently, I will, of course, change my abstain to an aye/nay.

    How about the fact that you don't need a few dozen hounds to kill a fox?

    You need a gun and good aim.

    Or you could have some fun and hunt something better and tastier - like deer.

    There is absolutely no need for fox hunting. It's a cruel and barbaric sport which shouldn't be encouraged. Plus we all know that serial killers often start off with killing animals, giving the impression that it's okay to go out and kill whatever you want is an awful idea.
