Prepare To Be Hounded
If the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill had been on the Statute Book in 2002, then the Countryside March would have been illegal under its ban on protests.
And once it has become the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Act, then foxhunting will be illegal, and really illegal this time, under its criminalisation of trespass, which no one disputes should be a civil tort.
Anyone who thinks that "they only hunt on their own land" must live in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.
Let the House of Lords think on.
