Judges reject hunting challenge


Hunt supporters have lost their latest legal appeal against the law banning hunting with dogs in England and Wales.

The Countryside Alliance had claimed the 1949 Parliament Act, which MPs used to introduce the Hunting Act after House of Lords opposition, is invalid.

The Appeal Court ruled against them - meaning the ban will start on Friday.

The RSPCA said the judges' decision shows the group's arguments are "wafer thin", but the alliance vowed to fight on and said hunting would continue.

Pro-hunt groups say the ban is unenforceable, but both the League Against Cruel Sports and the RSPCA say they will help police to monitor the hunts.

On Saturday hunting will look, sound and smell exactly the same as it always did

What is the Parliament Act?
Hunt ban support 'declining'

The Countryside Alliance was appealing against a High Court ruling on 28 January stating that the 1949 Act was clearly valid.

On Wednesday three Appeal Court judges described the challenge as "unusual, and in modern times probably unprecedented".

But they upheld the January ruling and threw out the appeal.

They also refused leave to appeal to the House of Lords, saying it would cast too much uncertainty over the status of the Hunting Act.

The alliance said it will make an urgent application directly to the House of Lords to hear their appeal.

Speaking after the judgement, Simon Hart, of the alliance, accepted the ban would go ahead on Friday.

If we find criminal conspiracies to break the law then we will tell the police

League Against Cruel Sports

But he said hunting would "look, sound and smell exactly the same" on Saturday because the police would not be able to enforce the law.

The alliance has said about 50,000 people are prepared to break the ban and continue hunting "in the full knowledge they will be arrested".

But the League Against Cruel Sports says it is setting up a "crimewatch service" to monitor the ban.

The league's chief executive, Douglas Batchelor, said: "If we find criminal conspiracies to break the law then we will tell the police."

And RSCPA spokeswoman Becky Hawkes said they would also assist the police in bringing prosecutions.

Chisholm '72---Unbought & Unbossed

I loved this program. Watching someone to put themselves out there and stand their firm ground when everything is against them... that is inspiration to me. She pushed her way into the presidential election because it was her right to be heard as a candidate.

Some look at emotion as a weakness.. but I ask myself.. doesn't motivation or passion for something come initially from emotion? what is it that triggers your brain at that moment to look at something completely different from what you thought it was? Maybe its logic that makes you see it differently but if you didn't feel anything then wouldn't you just bypass it or ignore it?

My ex-boyfriend's dad had this huge bumper sticker on his car... "question authority"... I didn't really get that in high school. It wasn't til college that the phrase made complete sense to me.

viva la revolution!

not as hungover as i thought i would be.. little brain dead though..

my favorite pbs program starts its season tonight!
P.O.V. - They show some of the best documentaries I have ever seen.

Tonight at 10 - P.O.V.: Chisholm '72---Unbought & Unbossed

In 1968, Shirley Chisholm becomes the first black woman elected to Congress. In 1972, she becomes the first black woman to run for president. Shunned by the political establishment, she's supported by a motley crew of blacks, feminists, and young voters. Their campaign-trail adventures are frenzied, fierce, and fundamentally right on!

Last week I attended a web conference in San Francisco for work. (Public Broadcasting Internet Summit). I learned tons of geeky web stuff for 3 days. And I loved every minute of it! Plus I got to meet and hang with some really cool people. The conference had a reception at the MOMA with the JibJab Brothers ..oh.. and free food and wine .. this marked the beginning of my weekend..

I could not have asked for a better weekend! I met up with Corbett, Allison, Shad, Kristin and their two friends for dinner at this Vegetarian Asian restaurant (The food was sooo GOOD). The we walked over with very satisfied stomachs to witness Corbett in action. His improv show was hilarious. Everyone needs to go see it. Afterwards we hit this really cool restaurant/bar/dance space.They played almost every genre of music while we were there. Spent Sat. with Miss allison.. shopping, walking, talking each others ear's off and seeing the ocean!! It wouldn't be complete without a night of dancing to some old funky beats... corbett organized a nice pre-party shingdig (is that even a word?). I am having corbett and allison withdrawals.
