Blair's dirty trick over hunt ban; yourLETTERS.

to 150 forget to address Despite the fact that the hunters get nearly all the media coverage in this country, due to the preponderance of hunters in powerful positions, nothing can alter the fact that the general public are infuriated and disgusted by the vicious cruelty which is at the heart of hunting. Tony Blair cannot care a jot for his reputation, having admitted to this most despicable and devious of dirty tricks, which deprived thousands of defenceless animals of the protection they desperately need.
Whoever becomes leader of the Labour party had better take careful note that here is a gross wrong which needs to be righted. They will receive no support from animal lovers in this country until they commit to strengthening the ban on hunting and showing these arrogant hunters that they are not above the law, even though they make it obvious that they believe they are.
