Sir: I do not agree with Terence Blacker's assessment of Prince William's demeanour at the Beaufort Hunt on Saturday (Comment, 2 November). I attend two or three hunts each week throughout the cub-hunting and fox- hunting season in order to film their activities, and I can now spot a hunter at twenty paces in any environment. I am afraid that both William and Harry entirely looked the part of the callous hunters to me.
Foxhunting is a revolting and cruel practice dressed up to look like a pageant, rather like Spanish bullfighting. If Tony Blair is looking for some heartfelt popularity, may he stop the unforgivable delay and ban hunting forthwith.
