Sensible U-Turn at the National Trust.
I see that the members of the National Trust have voted almost 2 to 1 to support the return of hunting of deer on its property. It was also great to see the splendid Labour MP for Vauxhall, Kate Hoey in Carmarthen last week. She is the Chair of the Countryside Alliance and a politician of deep principles and she was calling for the Hunting Ban to be reversed. I was really sorry that I couldn't go to meet her and the CA's dynamic Chief Executive, Simon Hart who lives in the area. I hope that David Cameron stands by his promise to overturn the Hunting with Dogs Act when he becomes Prime Minister. It is an act conceived in prejudice and unworkable in practice. I have just become an even more avid supporter of the National Trust
