Hunting

"There is no hunting like the hunting of man, and those who have hunted armed men long enough and liked it, never care for anything else thereafter."

Actually, this page is about the sort of hunting perpetrated by people with names like Camilla and Fiona, who are often married to chinless freaks with names like Tarquin and Sebastian. At least, that's the common misperception.

Hunting is actually an integral part of country life. It keeps vermin at bay, creates badly needed revenues in rural areas, and maintains vital local traditions. It's also bloody good fun and you get to see loads of totty prancing about in jodphurs and the like.

Lots of supposedly erudite and worldly types have waxed lyrical about hunting but the simple fact is that hunting is easy to deride due to its links with the 'upper classes'. Clearly, this is pish. A far more balanced view about this sort of thing can be found here.
