Why are we still having a debate on hunting? It is a cruel and barbaric activity that inflicts dreadful suffering and should rightly be confined to the history books.

Those who want it back clearly have no respect for our precious wildlife, countryside or animal welfare. For it to be one of Mr Cameron's top priorities just shows how little the Conservative Party has changed. It's the same old Tories wanting to drag us back.
