Andrea Leadsom, Tory MP for South Northamptonshire, is one of two females tipped to become our next Prime Minister.
Ms Leadsom is a committed Christian who claims she carries out her duties as an MP with God always in mind.
She says she became a Christian when her son was born, and she feels God is guiding her hand in all she does.
Perhaps she missed Ecclesiastes 3:19 “For what happens to the children of man and what happens to the beasts is the same; as one dies, so dies the other. They all have the same breath, and man has no advantage over the beasts, for all his vanity.
Isaiah 1:11 “What to Me is the multitude of your sacrifices? says the Lord; I have had enough of burnt offerings of rams and the fat of well-fed beasts; I do not delight in the blood of bulls, or of lambs, or of goats.
A freedom of information request to DEFRA shows there are no official statistics for the wild claims that foxes kill livestock in huge numbers.
Foxes are not vermin, as Ms Leadsom claims. The term vermin technically applies to insect vectors that spread disease to human beings.
We are not at any risk of catching diseases from foxes. Even their fleas are from our own domestic cats. In the unlikely event that a dog contracts mange from a wild fox, it is an easily treated infestation which can be cleared up in a very short time.
Opposition to fox hunting is at an all-time high, and recent undercover investigations by the HIT team showing Pytchley hunt employees throwing live fox cubs into a kennel full of hounds, has enraged people even further. 83 per cent of the public today say fox hunting should not be made legal again, that is up from 72 per cent when the question was asked in 2008.
Ms Leadsom’s favourite hunt footing. Shocking racist verbals from one of the pros. Hereford hunt rearing fox cubs to train hounds by throwing them alive into a kennel full of hounds.
A sneaky backdoor attempt to make minor changes to the hunting Act (which would have legalised red coat hunting through the backdoor) failed last July because of unprecedented opposition from anti hunt MPs across the board.
Andrea’s own Tory Party has a growing number of MPs who are opposed to this cruel form of entertainment. If she is elected to lead the Party and she does hold a vote on repeal, she may find she has huge opposition from town and country alike.
The UK may be a country in turmoil because of poor Tory leadership, Brexit and the Labour Party coup, but we are still a nation of animal lovers.
