Letter: Foxy business

Click to follow
Sir: Paul Roberts questions my assertion that foxhunting is a sport (letter, 13 March). I base this simply on its classification in this country as a field sport along with shooting and fishing. These activities are classified differently in the USA, hence his response.

But if we really want to start splitting hairs, most of what are referred to as "sports" should really be called "games", so maybe my original point about Tony Banks is incorrect, and rather than resign as Minister for Sport his position should be renamed Minister for Games.
