The Scottish National Party have been circulating an official public
response to our reports of SNP MP Angus MacNeil participating in this years
hunting of Gannet chicks.
The Party of Government in Scotland have
went for damage limitation by claiming that "Please firstly note that Angus
MacNeil MP did not take part in the actual hunting of gannet."
is spin and not very clever spin at that.
MacNeil took part in the
hunt full stop. You can read him boasting about his exploits and praising
the clubbing to death of chicks here:
The MP gushed "(I) feel very fortunate to be a small part of this year's
expedition�. Appears he did not batter any chicks to death personally but
chose instead to join and egg on the ones who did. We really don't know
which is worse.
To suggest he didn't take part is as ludicrous as
claiming those who ride out with the fox hunts or beat the grouse for the
shooters aren't taking part in the hunting and killing of these animals.
The Scottish National Party also justify their support of the stoning to
death of baby Gannets by stating "Recent studies have shown an increase in
the population of gannet over the past 30 years."
We hope the Party
don't twig that the stray dog population's been rising too.
contact the SNP at this address asking why they've got such a low opinion of
the intelligence of the public:
