I seem to recall a few years ago the Tory front organisation called the Countryside Alliance claiming that if a ban on fox hunting was introduced we would see;
a) All the hunts in the country closing.
b) All the hounds being put down.
c) Thousands of country "folk" losing their jobs
d) The countryside overrun with foxes.
As none of these things have actually happened and hunts seem to be thriving without having to chase foxes, are we to presume the Countryside Alliance are a bunch of liars ?
