Hunting Ban Remains

Theresa May is one of those nasty little people who get their kicks from destroying animals and as such prior to her disastrous election last year made a pledge to give MPs a vote on overturning the ban on fox hunting, something which she was at pains to explain she is in favour of.
Her train of thought was that the Conservative Party would win enough seats to vote for a return to ripping the British wildlife to pieces for sport but as her majority was slashed, she can't do it now so has bravely span it as doing what the country wants rather than what she wants.
So no repeal of the 2004 Hunting Act but not because it's inhumane and cruel but because Theresa May hasn't got enough support for it from the House of Commons and she knows that her grip on the Prime Ministerial role is tenuous enough that she can't afford another defeat. 
It appears then that the government still doesn't accept that cruel sports should no longer be a part of 21st Century but more importantly we are finding out that right-wing policies have no place in it either.

The younger generation seems to be looking at right wing policies, sees the carnage it causes and are rejecting it so I agree, my side will win because the alternative is horrendous.
