The unspeakable in full pursuit of the uneatable

A rumour has reached my ears that there may be a ‘big’ hunting story this week. I’ll be very glad to see this at the top of the political agenda. The Tories’ intention to ‘hold a free vote’ (i.e. repeal the ban faster than you can say Bullingdon Club) is symbolic of the way things will go if we let them back into government.

I’m from a farming family on my Mum’s side, and lots of my relatives hunted (a few still do, alas). I’m happy to report that my siblings and I have always been vocally opposed to this particularly nasty blood sport. These days we just don’t talk about it at family gatherings, but I’ll get back up on the barricade if bicycling Dave makes me!

How cold is my valley?

Who I am

This blog started during the months before the 2010 General Election, in which I was the Green candidate for Calder Valley. It's morphed into an account of green activism...and other meanderings.
