As we haven't had a defence of fox-hunting, I thought I'd put my point of view, parts of which have appeared on the BHA forum. First of all, let's deal with a few red herrings which distract from the debate. Class hatred: don't be ridiculous. Townies v country bumpkins: Though ignorance can and does...

Knowing who Molly Mac is, as I do , you should be flattered, Goldie! She'll doubtless let you know herself.

You've completely lost me Nick, Try verbalising it, Alan. It's similar to this old gag: "Are you a pole-vaulter?" "Nein, I'm German, but how did you know my name waz Walter?" Back to the thread: Evolution What's a better way than revolution? No, it's just the way my trousers hang.
