Huntin'


I saw Chris T-T play the other week quite excellent and he clearly regards hunting in the same way that I do (apologises for the language!):

The Huntsman Comes A-Marchin'

The countryside is dying
They're closing village stores
While shepherds watched their flocks by night
The government burned them all
And here's another post office
With boards across the door

The people from the city came
To breathe the cleaner air
They listen to The Archers
Buy new coats and grow their hair
Then they buy up all the houses
So country people born-and-bred
Can't afford to live there

Now the Countryside Alliance
We'll call them 'the cunts' for short
They promised in defiance
That a battle would be fought
Then ignored the real problems
To shout about their bloody sport

Call it a betrayal - it looks like that to me
Call it bad behaviour and a waste of time and money
I've never been in favour of police brutality
But when the huntsman comes a-marchin'
Well give him one for me, officer, give him one for me.

Now the cunts have come to London
To give us all what for:
There were only 20 thousand of them
Marching down through Whitehall
But they were such a bunch of thugs
The police arrested more
Than when 2 million normal people
Marched against the war

Call it a betrayal - looks like that to me
Call it bad behaviour and a waste of time and money
I've never been in favour of police brutality
But when the huntsman comes a-marchin'
Well give him one for me, officer, give him one for me.

Where were you when the miners fought to save their livelihoods?
Dressed up in red velvet somewhere deep in the woods
You loved the fucking poll tax, you propped up Margaret Thatcher
And you didn't give a fuck about Tony Blair
'Til he threw your hobby back at ya.

The countryside is dying
Some say it's already dead
And the huntsman has a boner as the dogs pull it to shreds
Then he wipes the blood on his daughter's face
And drags her back to bed.

Call it a betrayal - looks like that to me
Call it bad behaviour and a waste of time and money
And I've never been in favour of police brutality
But when the huntsman comes a-marchin'
Well give him one for me, officer, give him one for me.

Just to illustrate how wasteful hunting is I saw this in this morning's Times:

GAME birds shot from the sky for sport are being discarded in dumps. Video footage and photographs compiled by the League Against Cruel Sports appear to show that birds are frequently dumped after shoots, despite the insistence of shooting organisations that birds are killed for food. Activists infiltrated several shooting venues to expose the existence of the dumps, which are highlighted in a report on the sport by the league.

Dead birds were filmed and photographed in pits with champagne bottles, used cartridges and the bodies of other animals that had been snared or shot to protect the birds.

Douglas Batchelor, chief executive of the league, said: “This evidence explodes the myth so often spun by the Countryside Alliance and other bloodsports apologists that every game bird shot at commercial shoots is destined for the dinner table. These birds were not shot for food, they were shot for sport. The cruelty involved has absolutely no justification.” He called it an animal welfare scandal “of epic proportions”. But a spokesman for the Countryside Alliance challenged the evidence. “What you are seeing is a couple of dozen birds that are rejected for human consumption. Every bird shot has to be inspected under EU hygiene rules and if the carcasses are damaged they cannot go to processors for use in the food chain.”

Ahhh another serious post from me, but Chris T-T's lyrics are very witty!

Sorry for any pro-hunting people out there, but to me killing for fun is simply wrong. I can be macho, but I don't need a gun.
