The unacceptable in pursuit of the uneatable
As I was waking up this morning I caught half a report on the television that Prince Charles has said that he will carry on hunting in defiance of a ban. If this report is correct and if the Prince of Wales makes good on his threat then he should be the first to be prosecuted. The Government cannot allow an anachronism to undermine the democratically elected House of Commons in this way. Perhaps then the Hooray Henrys, who stormed the chamber in Westminster, will realise that the process of Government is not some public school game.
