Why hunting?

Whatever you think of the issue of fox hunting, it still seems bizarre to me that we’re spending so much parliamentary time on it when the country’s social services and transport infrastructure are collapsing. If it’s really about animal cruelty, why aren’t we banning battery hens? They are infinitely more cruel, with millions of chickens suffering daily rather than the few hundred foxes killed every year. No, this is an example of the affluent urban Labour Party cheerily trampling over a rural population they don’t understand, and don’t wish to understand.
