Foxes Safe,(for now?)

Further to our recent post about the general election campaign, it's good to see that one of the positive results of having a coalition is that the Conservatives have had to drop their intention of reintroducing the torturing of foxes for fun.

The two party leaders, Cameron and Clegg, have agreed a compromise on hunting, by allowing the issue to go to a free vote of the Commons. If MPs support a motion to repeal the ban, the government will introduce legislation to effect this. But if, as seems likely based on party loyalties, MPs vote to retain the status quo, the government will not take any further action.
