Here is a copy of a message posted on Twitter by MP John Glen on Boxing Day 2012:
The Hunting Lobby has unlimited funds and ample support from very small but very powerful groups. Hunting foxes with dogs is also a very divisive issue, with many regarding the activity as thoroughly repugnant and unacceptable in the 21st Century. It seems strange therefore that Mr Glen should choose this as the topic of his Boxing Day / Christmas message. Surely a message more in keeping with the spirit of Christmas would have been appropriate?
