second opinion - ban on fox hunting
WORKERS, OCT 2004 ISSUE
Protesters against the ban on fox hunting have invaded the House of Commons and forced a Minister to cancel his walk on Kinder Scout, celebrating the Right to Roam. Quite right. This government is happy to abolish thousands of jobs in the countryside, where most workers struggle to earn a meagre living.
Thanks to the EU Common Agricultural Policy, profit-greedy supermarkets and British government inaction, agriculture is in steep decline, with large areas uncultivated and ungrazed. In future only townies running B&Bs may be able to continue living in a countryside reverting to wilderness.
