The abolition of BLOOD SPORTS not making a difference to the level of compassion in society has got to be the main reason for Cameron repealing the FOX HUNTING ACT. And no doubt he could spin a PR campaign to make blood sports sound plausible, but we know it would be just another example of a member of the ruling class treating us like mindless pond life.
But what government and the ruling classes SAY and DO does have an influence on society's behaviour.
There was a time when ADULTERY was taboo in a community,but not any more since the Tory Party's BACK TO BASICS policy when their leader was later found out to have been conducting an adulterous affair, and if that wasn't enough, the Prince of Wales gave adultery the Royal Seal of approval; no admonishment for them,the Prince kept his crown and John Major was knighted.
And there's many more examples; expenses, money for questions, lobbyist making deals behind closed doors,and these are just some of the most recent.
Even something regular and ordinary as NOT GIVING A STRAIGHT ANSWER TO A STRAIGHT QUESTION has an adverse influence on society. And the three main party leaders are guilty.
So as long as David Cameron supports blood sports, all his fine words about mending a broken society will sound very hollow,and made worse coming from a wealthy aristocrat who has no concept of what it's like for a poor family struggling to bring up a family against all the odds in a society corrupted by ambitious people who think what they say and do has no adverse influence on our impressionable children. We may not know much about David Cameron, but we do know he's an ambitious man
