In his new book, "50 People Who Buggered Up Britain", the Daily Mail’s peerless sketchwriter Quentin Letts offers his own roll call of the 50 prime suspects he blames for wrecking our country. One of Letts’ culprits is Alun Michael – a figure with whom followers of hunting’s history will be all too familiar. This extract was published in the Daily Mail on 8th October 2008:

"Fox-hunting, as traditionally practised, became an illegal activity during Tony Blair’s second term. Hundreds of hours of parliamentary effort were devoted to its extermination. MPs bent over backwards to criminalise an outdoor sport pursued by some of the most upstanding members of the community. The ban was ridiculous and impractical and it tarnished Parliament’s own standing.

"The Government minister who pushed through the hunting ban? A dismal little doormat called Alun Michael.

"To look at, he is not a striking proposition, a careworn creature with the hunched shoulders and lank hair of a natural loser. Alun Michael is an authentic middler, a worker bee, putty in the hands of more confident colleagues.

"On hunting, he got his way. Ill-informed, emotive arguments defeated common sense. But he still looked flea-bitten as he led the canter towards the ban. He still looked miserable, mangy, weak."

No ‘fresh’ eggs for us and the children for two weeks! The fox has put the hens off laying and if the fox hadn’t been caught, just in time, all the hens would of been killed for nothing! The last time I tried to shoot a fox I missed – I might of wounded it – it probably had an agonizing death – this one the terriers got (at a local farm) and was instantly dispatched. It was after the hens and more… Keep on ‘Hunting’ – the fox is! See, photos. RSPCA’s Advice to Cat Owners. Keep cats in at night, because they may be killed by the fox: the cat will fight and kill wildlife, also there is a chance that the cat might be run over (depending where you live). This is like depriving you of light or forcing you to live some ‘half-life’. RSPCA – so much going for them (rather like the Church), but so much crass stupidity! Cruelty abounds with banning things – everyone agrees with sensible rules And,

Social anthropologist, evolutionist, and humorist, Quentin Letts in his book ’50 People Who Buggered Up Britain’, sort of, says, "The ‘Human Being’ is little different from the vole or the dormouse. Hundreds of homes a day in Britain are visited by the spectre of (sudden) death – women, men, and children: stunned and weeping: returning to a long forgotten God and applying their hopes to an imagined Heaven for their dead, and in amongst, and analogous to: an adults view point of the frightened five year old’s, frightened of the dark at bedtime, who see a glimmer of Gods light under the bedroom door! The social network of rural parishes (full of old rich urban anti-hunting intruders – mostly, atheists – due to Darwin and Dawkins) whose fun and weakened happiness has been totally spoilt by not going to church and the good clergy’s lives have been complicated by secular thinking of most right-minded people". Scientific (social) Anthropologist and the Evolutionary Biologist Professor Richard Dawkins FRS in his book ‘The Ancestor’s Tale’ ‘A Pilgrimage to the Dawn of Life’, sort of, says, about Quentin Letts’s voles and dormouse’s (the villagers, uneducated – rurals, and the religious mourners) "Here we are, 140 million years ago at the base of the Cretaceous with the Concester 14 (Rendezvous 14) Marsupials, our 80-million-greats-grandparent, who lived in Gondwana". "Sudden Death Syndrome" And –

My First family, second marriage, bringing up my 18-year-old twins, boy, and girl. I am a third generation Humanist, who has some old handwritten information and notes; collected over many years. Someone may find the articles interesting, or helpful. They could bring back a little ‘reality’, after being ‘shocked’ and ‘brainwashed’, by some malicious group, or institution (REBT Therapy). People should know better, than to do this, to our very young, and the ‘obviously’ vulnerable! Go to easily accessible, non-superstitious knowledge that is not charlatanism! The blog has given me an incentive to order my thoughts, learn, and read up again, after a few non-thinking years of (very silly) imagination and passion. Why not, get your own key to a ‘door’, customise it to suit you, and it can be, all of your very own! Don’t believe, or be led by someone else’s; inherited, stupid, and a very likely (past, and not of today’s) ‘totally preposterous reality’s’. Only some interest in the ‘really big questions’, keeps life above the level of a farce, and very little else! KEEP THINKING! Some of the posts may need some correcting.

Favorite quote: “The world belongs to those who, at least to some degree, have figured it out.” Carl Sagan, ‘The Demon Haunted World’, ‘Contact’, and other famous books DVD ‘Cosmos’. The warning of another and horrendous, “Age of Superstition”. “Isn’t there something deeply absurd in the presumption that children ought to inherit beliefs from their parents. It can be deeply damaging, even lethally divisive. A ‘them’, with an ‘against us’, mentality” – Professor Richard Dawkins. “The will to believe is stronger than mere reason in the vast majority of people” – Dr J.Brown, Army Psychologist of the 1960′s. Humans will believe in almost anything, in fact, they seek it! Why? “98% of us, trained to be just good consumers, let’s train our children to be the 2% who have their very own creativity and discernment”; quote by a famous surreal artist. “The lack of reason brings forth monsters”. “Global interconnectedness is lethal against mass religion, nationalism, racism, and other destructive memeplexes. Let us connect everybody they hate it in restrictive regimes”; from the ‘meme learning group’, Richard Brodie’s book, ‘Virus Of The Mind’ (Richard Brodie a designer for ‘Microsoft Word’). Following on, J.Bronowski, and ‘The Ascent Of Man’ TV series, and a book with the last DVD in this series, ‘The Long Childhood’ being especially revealing. ‘Prehistory’ and the ‘Making of the Human Mind’ by Colin Renfrew, with P.Wilson’s, ‘The Domestication of the Human Species’, and Nigel Spivey’s, TV series and book, ‘How Art Made The World’, offers some further explanations.
