More violence

To be frank I am getting bored of the campaign of violent protest against Government Ministers in support of fox hunting. The latest took place on Thursday in Cardiff. During this demonstration, three police officers were injured, eggs were thrown, a member of the public was allegedly assaulted, homophobic remarks were aimed at Rhondda Labour MP, Chris Bryant, and there are reports of racist abuse being directed at an Asian Police Officer.

It seems that the Countryside Alliance have condemned these acts of violence but have warned that more demonstrations could follow. Because, by their own admission they cannot control the actions of their supporters, more demonstrations will lead to more violence of the sort that they say they condemn. These people are walking a tightrope of acceptability and my advice to any mainstream politician who continues to support this organisation is to reconsider that support quickly.
