The Independent Culture
Sir: If a mob of teenagers on a rough council estate were to chase a stray dog, corner it and kick it to death they would, quite rightly, be prosecuted with the full weight of the law. No section of the media would defend their actions.

Take identical behaviour dressed up with red coats and given the label of "country sport" and suddenly a leader column in The Independent is defending this as a matter of personal freedom.

Your hypocrisy stinks.
