Work For The Lobby – Fox in Parliament

on May 28, 2015

We need researchers and various staff to build teams against hunting ban repeal, read this link http://goo.gl/3FNoqZ
Yesterday David Cameron tried to get you to look away from his true intentions of repealing the hunting ban. By not having repeal mentioned in the Queens speech.
It was a deliberate ploy to reduce the focus on the issue in order to reduce public momentum against the move. Yet it has failed and all it has shown is how underhand Cameron is. He clearly cares little to nothing for democracy as not only not having a legitimate mandate to repeal the ban with the British people he is now looking for further deception.
We strongly suspect he is willing to use an issue that could lead to the breakup of the UK in order to gain repeal. That is the move to make Scottish MPs 2nd class and deny them the ability to vote on English issues. Cameron has a Commons majority as it is but he wants to be far larger and by stopping Scottish MPs voting he would get just that.
This aspect of course is not about animal welfare legislation directly, but it is likely to be the issue that determines the outcome if wildlife will be safe or not. There are however still many what ifs and as it stands. The SNP have still not given a solid response that they will vote to block repeal. They argue they need to see the legislation? Well we all know what will be in the legislation, it will say scrap the ban in full. We see that response as a poor from the SNP and not given the clarity society is looking for. It’s quite simple, if Cameron goes for a repeal vote then all the SNP need to decide is are they for or against it!
So more pressure is needed on the SNP to ensure they put the views forward of Scottish people who are part of the 80% who want the ban to stay. Yet this battle has many sides and sadly Cameron has various options to seek animal cruelty.
So to be ready and to be able to campaign against Cameron in gaining animal cruelty we need to expand on our teams. There is a lot that needs doing and we are small in number. So we need more help to ensure we can shout it loud that wildlife matters more than Camerons view.
Please go to this link and see the roles on offer, we sadly cannot pay wages however. We are a non profit organisation and all those involved in our lobby are volunteers. However we think as you are reading this you know the importance of wildlife and why you would want to help. Do note however we a pro Labour animal lobby, We do expect those who help the lobby to either be members of the party or those who would support Labour winning at the next election.
All campaigns have different angles and strengths. Our strength is with our connections with Labour MPs and parliament. Those links enable us to do far more for wildlife. So do take a look and see what roles are of interest and send us an e mail with your CV. All volunteers determine how much time and energy they can put into the role themselves. Some of the roles do require the ability to get to London for an occasional meeting but we can be flexible.
We do of course need more members, lots more. Membership is £10 a year and can be paid via Pay Pal or cheque. Every penny raised goes back into the lobby for events and in delivering the message. Not as many people join organisations as you may think. That means it can limit what they can do. So do give it a thought. Info via the website.
The battle to save the ban is going to be hard, and we have no clear path to how long before Cameron will make his move. Giving the legislation process if he takes the Scotland route it could be a lot longer than people think. Yet Cameron has time on his side, five long years. So we have to be ready for whatever and whenever his desire for animal cruelty takes hold.
We are however winning the first battle, he would not have been so quiet on the Queens Speech if he had not felt the pressure against repeal already!

    Firstly I should tell you that both of the links do not work when I tried them earlier.

    It is sickening that the most powerful man in the UK enjoys such a cruel and barbaric pastime, this clearly shows the type of person he is. It seems that here in the UK we are taking steps backwards and all the progress of the previous decades is being systematically demolished. Hunting of any kind should be consigned to history where it belongs, reinstating fox hunting is a huge step backwards and it must not happen.
