I want to put on record my admiration for Brian May’s campaign to keep hunting with dogs illegal. I’m happy to add my voice to the tens of thousands of others who have already backed his campaign. I also want to put on record my total commitment, that under a Labour government this ban on cruelty will be maintained. Fox hunting should stay in the history books where it belongs.
Gordon Brown is the first party political leader to support the Back the Ban campaign, which, of course, he should given that he is the Prime Minister and leader of the Labour Party who fought for the bloodsports ban. Nonetheless, will David Cameron and Nick Clegg follow suit?
