YOUR article (August 29) describing the intended prosecution by the RSPCA of a member of the Heythrop Hunt, was surprisingly brief in content, given that David Cameron has ridden with the Heythrop and that the accused is a friend of his.

I recognise that the case is sub- judice but it will undoubtedly become a focus for those of us who believe that the hunting ban is routinely being ignored by many in the countryside who seem to think that they are above the law.

Cameron is intent on resurrecting the hunting debate despite overwhelming public support for the ban and despite a significant majority of conservative voters who hold the same view.

He is also engaged in a similarly unpopular project to massacre our badger population at the behest of dairy farmers.

It seems that there is no limit to this man’s contempt for our wildlife.
