You now have the opportunity to make the voice of the ‘Rural Voter’ heard. If you care about proper wildlife management, our countryside, our cultural heritage, our rural community fabric, our civil liberties, our rural traditions, then you are the Hunting Kind. We need your support now.
‘First they came for the hunts and I did not speak out because I did not hunt. Then they came for shooting and I did not speak out because I did not shoot. Then they came for angling, ferreting, falconry, gun dogs, lurchers, terriers, working dogs, greyhound racing, horse racing, eventing, farming, livestock, horse riding, family pets, country pubs, village greens, cider and our entire way of life.....and then they came for me. And there was no one left to speak for me.’
CENTRAL OVERARCHING THEME
Gain the "social license" to preserve and protect our rural way of life, based on articulating and understanding its cultural significance.
Where We Currently Stand
Currently in Parliament is the nonsense that are the Animal Welfare Bills (‘Sentience’, ‘Kept Animals’ and ‘Animals Abroad’), the Scottish Parliament reducing to 2 hounds to flush foxes to guns and an imminent election in Northern Ireland. We don’t need to wait for a Labour Government to further strengthen the Hunting Act, with the "Conservatives Against Fox Hunting" (Blue Foxes) and the likes of Sir Roger Gale MP, Henry Smith MP, Ben and Zac Goldsmith, with the legacy of Carrie Johnson assisted by Chris Packham.
“Don’t accept bad law and expect the rural fabric of the UK to survive by attempting to operate within its loopholes and smokescreens….it won’t.”
WHY RURAL VOTES MATTER
We need our politicians to understand that 200 parliamentary seats are rural. 30% in voting terms is a Government changing figure. This figure is estimated at around 2.5 million rural Brits. How do we get there?
If there’s only one thing you do in ’22,

We need to know politicians’ rural position/manifesto in the run up to the May 24 election, to get these critical matters addressed properly. Politicians are losing credibility with rural voters as a result of these current animal welfare bills and confidence in the entire process is fading fast. In the meantime get to know your MP.
REVIEW THE LAWS – REPLACE THE ACT
A proposition needs to be made by MPs to the Law Commission, to revisit their review of wildlife (welfare and conservation) law in the light of Brexit.
Lobby Government to introduce an all-encompassing new Wildlife Management Bill.
Reform the EU Birds and Habitat Directive.
Substantially amend and replace the Hunting Act with a workable legislative framework.
But we need to show them the numbers – please show your support below
Comments So Far..
Hallelujah... at last. Wholeheartedly agree and lets get this moving, the more the merrier.
Good on the rural 'Voter'. I pray that our cultural heritage will survive for the next generation.
Let's replace this bad law. We say 'enough is enough for rural predudice'.
