Plans by Britain’s Government to lift the ban on fox hunting has caused international outrage. In Afghanistan, British troops, especially bomber pilots, are highly respected for their sense of sportsmanship and fair play. All this good will is likely to be lost if fox hunting in the UK is legalised.
According to Moore: “hunting is a sickness, a perversion and a danger and should be recognised as such. People who get their amusement from killing defenceless animals can only be suffering from a mental disorder … its detestable that anyone should get their thrills from killing others who ask for nothing other than to remain alive”.
So, it could be bad luck for our heroic supersonic RAF bomber pilots. Next time they go out to flatten an Afghan village full of women and children because somebody said they saw a Taliban rifleman there, they could find themselves being called “sick, mentally disordered, perverts” because the Nation they belong to has legalised fox hunting.
