Letter: After the hunt Bill

THE LOGIC of your leading article "Drop the humbug about hunting" (14 March) was exemplary - until your discussion of the banning of activities for moral reasons.

You cited adultery and abortion as practices regarded as wrong by many people where you clearly considered legislation to be inappropriate. Would you say the same about paedophilia, rape, or murder?

Obviously it is a question of where to draw the line. The vast majority in this country want a line to be drawn against torturing a wild animal for fun: you do not. Your attitude is as contemptible as the duplicitous response of the Government on this issue.
