Tally-ho!

Always good to see the Tories reverting to type.

One of the first acts of the new Conservative government (may the saints preserve us from such an event) will be to devote government time to repealing the ban on hunting with dogs.

Nick Herbert, their shadow environment minister, criticises the Labour government for sticking to a manifesto promise to ban hunting because it took up 700 hours of parliamentary time and required the use of the Parliament Act to force it through a House of Lords that decided to block the will of the elected house and of the British people, even though convention dictated that it should not block a manifesto promise from the government.

The unspeakable are in full cry again.
