The General Election & Some Ethics

So now it's official, the General Election is to be held on Thursday May the 6th.

On that note now would be an opportune moment to restate our editorial policy re: politics.

"It is Not the purpose of this site to campaign on political issues, however as a Buddhist site we will continue to promote peace and the welfare of all beings by any appropriate non-violent means".

So, on the point of promoting the peace and welfare of all beings, I will just point out that the Tory party are committed to repealing the ban on fox hunting. As such, as a Buddhist, I will not be voting to reinstate this cruel and barbaric "entertainment". This is particularly pertinent here on the Island. Foxes are not indigenous to the Isle of Wight (that's because of the Solent) and were purposefully introduced to the Island in 1845 by Messrs Ben Cotton and Henry Nunn for the sole purpose of "sport"....... so can't be that much of a pest!
