200 parliamentary seats are rural. 30% in voting terms is a Government changing figure.

We need to know politicians’ rural position/manifesto in the run up to the next election, to get these critical matters addressed properly.


Northern Ireland December 2021

"We campaigned hard to help represent the views of Northern Ireland’s farming and hunting community. Today’s politicians rejected prejudice and voted on the basis of sound wildlife management practice, cultural heritage and the preservation of the rural way of life."

The 2004 Hunting Act is bad law. The Prime Minister who implemented it is on record to say he wishes that he hadn’t. MPs who voted for it have admitted it was ‘revenge for the miners’. The Parliamentary Counsel who drafted it sees it as unfinished business and the data shows it has been disastrous for animal welfare. It’s bad law, let’s replace it.” Rob Williams MFH

Daniel Greenberg - Parliamentary Counsel who drafted the Hunting Act 2004

Instead of an effective measure, therefore, the Act and Bills for it were largely an exercise in what it has now become fashionable to describe as “virtue signalling”...... "A moral judgement is being imposed on a minority - and I thought we didn't do that?"


The opinion of the Veterinary Association for Wildlife Management, supported by some 560 members of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons says “Hunting by hounds is the natural and most humane method of controlling the population of all four quarry species, fox, deer, hare and mink, in the countryside."

Hunting Needs You!

A clarion call from Sir Johnny Scott Bt, MFH

What the 'Hunting Kind' want to hear.

Ed Swales - Taking back the Countryside

Mister Kindness

Episode 96. Joining us from the north of England is campaigner and lobbyist for the rights of folks living in the countryside, Ed Swales. Ok, it's rant time. In light of the massive Europe-wide protests by farmers (which I'm fully behind), I wanted to get Ed to come on and give a better insight on it. I can't get my head round why governments have gone to war against farmers. Do they expect us to eat bugs or something? In the process we discuss hunting, corrupt politicians and the menace of house cats. Dynamite chat with good guy Ed. Enjoy...
