Gavin Grant signalled that the charity would be channelling efforts into an aggressive new push to prosecute those who flout the ban on hunting with dogs introduced by the last Labour Government.
He called for a dramatic toughening of sentences for huntsmen who allow hounds to kill foxes, which would put the offence on a par with killing a person by dangerous driving.
It just doesn’t work, does it?
If you did have a sense of proportion then you would obviously not argue for something so stupid. It’s legal to shoot foxes but as illegal to kill them with dogs as it is to kill a human being?
Carry on with that sort of absurdity and you end up in a world so crazed as to be unimaginable. Where, think about how stupid this would be, so entirely unbelievable, you had a Labour MP castigating companies as immoral for obeying the tax law of the country while she herself sheltered £18 million of assets, entirely legally, from the taxman. It’s immoral if a company does it, moral if a Labour MP does it.
Clearly such a world is ridiculous and will never happen. But that’s the sort of thing that would happen if everyone loses their sense of proportion.
