JIMThe Countryside Alliance’s Animal Welfare Consultant, Jim Barrington, has written a blog which will be of interest. In “Boxing Day 2013” Jim observes: “The fact is, the RSPCA, the LACS and certain MPs know that all they have to do is portray hunting in a kind of ‘we antis love animals, those hunters hate them’ manner, knowing that many members of the public, who generally don’t think too deeply about hunting and certainly don’t see it as a political priority, will swallow anything they say. What these groups definitely don’t like is an alternative view being put and worse, an alternative law being proposed that would make their precious Hunting Act redundant. This is why there was a flurry of outraged comments from antis when the Countryside Alliance announced that I do talks to schools and colleges.” Read Jim’s blog in full here.
