Who rules Britain? The Countryside alliance? The huntsmen, or the democratically elected MPs?
Simple, no nonsense choice. Who rules Britain?
Democracy? or Feudalism. The landowners? The huntsmen, or the person you elected?
If you decide that the hunting fraternity rules Britain? Then all that we fought and suffered for in the way of universal suffrage, is lost. Nothing to do with politics, it is a simple choice. Obey the law, or create chaos and anarchy, a chaos, that once started, could spread to others with an axe to grind, possibly, without bounds.
If red coated men and women on horses can ignore the law, then they set a precedence for a thousand other discontents! Think about it! For therein lies a breakdown of society as we know it.
There are many laws I loathe and detest, but I obey them. We fought against a dictatorial way of life, Are we “The British People” to allow others to circumvent the law, or the “Spirit of the law” that was enacted on a “Free” vote in ‘our’ Parliament and by our democratically elected MPs? Irrespective of their colour, or their party?
