Inner city conservatism and killing off the fox hunting vote

Graham Godwin-Pearson is delighted that the so-called Blue Fox group of Conservative MPs has declared the potential free vote on restoring fox hunting 'dead and buried'.

The informal group of mainly urban MPs have made their opposition to a return to hunting so vocal that the Government is likely to now scrap the vote.

Graham says, "We live in a progressive, compassionate society, where there's no room for barbaric sport or any form of unneccessary cruelty to animals.

"It's clear that the overwhelming majority of Britons do not want fox hunting to return, so the Government shouldn't even entertain the idea either."
