The party of cruelty

Fox hunting is the perfect example of pointless aristocratic cruelty. Its banning in the UK was a huge advance for animal welfare. Now Theresa May wants to bring it back:

Theresa May has announced she hopes to bring back fox hunting.

The Conservatives will renew a pledge to hold a free vote on overturning 2004 ban on the blood sport, Ms May said.

During a visit to a factory in Leeds, the Prime Minister said: “This is a situation on which individuals will have one view or the other, either pro or against.

“As it happens, personally I have always been in favour of fox hunting, and we maintain our commitment, we have had a commitment previously as a Conservative Party, to allow a free vote.

Another example of how the UK Conservatives are the party of cruelty. They'd probably bring back serfdom if they thought they could get away with it.
