Fox hunting: the law it's OK to break

Glyn Davies AM today:

Went down to the Boxing Day meet at Welshpool this morning. What magnificent defiance. 40 horses, a pack of hounds and 1000 people looking on, just to show their support. Like many of the crowd, I had no interest whatsoever in foxhunting until it was banned...

I thought respect for the law was a fundamental Conservative principle?

The government has a democratic mandate, and it has legislated.

We can't just pick and choose to abide only by the laws we like, can we?

Not breaking the law. Just operating within it - and showing how unworkable and disrespected it is. The most important point for me is that this law has added to the the total sum of animal cruely - not reduced it. People who understand the countryside knew that is what would happen.

Sounds awfully close to breaking it, though I doubt anyone would have been stupid enough to hunt illegally on Boxing Day with all the media attention.

Still, it's a law, and there can be "thugs, wreckers and bullies" on both sides of this argument.
