David Ian Jones, MP for Clwyd West & contributor/co-author to the nasty troll blog Thoughts of Oscar…..

It has come to light that as well as contributing to the troll blog Thoughts of Oscar, Jones is also a supporter of Fox Hunting.

That barbaric and incredibly cruel activity the posh twats of society, call sport.

Perhaps someone can explain to me what is sporting about watching a terrified animal being sort by a pack of blood thirsty hounds and a bunch of ignorant toffs on horseback, who revel in the sight of the fox being torn to shreds.

That’s not sport it is bloody barbaric.

More to follow on Jones and animal rights, all of which is in the public domain.

For those of you, like me, in Clwyd West, I’ve just been reading Hansard (I’m a party animal), and have found out that Gareth Thomas, the Labour GE candidate and former MP, voted against a ban on hunting with hounds (see link) in the initial debate, then abstained (presumably to not raise the Labour whips’ ire) in the votes on the final bill.
Whereas, the incumbent Tory MP, David Jones, is an active member of the Denbighshure Hunt, who always votes against animal rights.
Plaid Cymru and the Lib Dems (& the Tories in theory) offer their elected members a free vote on fox hunting with both having some members who have expressed support for a repeal (e.g.: http://www.theguardian.com/…/fox-hunting-law-flouted-impuni… ).

Animal Welfare Bill — New Clause “8” — Docking of dogs’ tails — 14 Mar 2006 at 19:15

David Jones MP, Clwyd West voted in the minority (No).
Those voting Aye inserted a new clause into the Animal Welfare Bill, which said:

A person commits an offence if… he removes [or causes the removal of] the whole or any part of a dog’s tail, otherwise than for the purpose of its medical treatment… [unless] the dog is a certified working dog that is not more than 5 days old.

A person commits an offence if he shows a dog at an event to which members of the public are admitted on payment of a fee,… [and] the dog’s tail has been wholly or partly removed… on or after the commencement day, [unless it is a working dog]

This amendment inserted into the Bill a ban on the tail docking of dogs’ tails for cosmetic purposes. A further vote, to ban tail docking of working dogs, was rejected in Division 188.
