Seeing as it's your house, I'd vote for Option 3.

If hunting foxes were actually required to be carried out by a gang of over privileged twazzocks red coats, bugling as they go, then it would be done year round and not just conveniently on Boxing Day when the toffs have jack all else to do.

 

 

Hunting is continuous between October and March. I used to have dealings with someone who is a member of the Bramham Hunt and it seemed as though, if you live in Yorkshire, there's a hunt somewhere in reasonable travelling distance just about every week.

 

Sorry to disillusion you, but he was brought up on the Middleton Estate in Leeds.

Jason Robinson was brought up in the same area, he sounds pretty posh these days

True, but many people (most?) live in a better house than the one they were brought up in.

Generally, yes.  There are minor differences but they're the same class of immigrant, fleeing their home country in fear for their lives.  Edit:  the former has been accepted as a refugee, the latter is still waiting on that acceptance.

Near were I use to live the local town took a fair number of refuges from the conflict in the old Yugoslavia mainly old women , young children , females of all ages when the troubles ended 95% returned home . Now the asylum seekers seem to be all around the same age and male , what's the difference if any between the two groups.

Asylum seekers are legally banned from holding a job in the UK.

I live on a farm

Sheep and store cattle mainly

There is a Fox population of several earths

There is no hunting, no poisoning and no shooting

Somehow everybody seems to manage

They're also not allowed mainstream benefits, a single asylum seeker can claim a MAXIMUM benefit package of £40.22 a week, a couple can claim £62.07.  Not exactly luxury is it?

Over 80% of Somali-speaking pupils qualify for free school meals. In Waltham Forest, a borough in east London, home to nearly 4,000 Somalis, 73% live in households on benefits. More than 50% of British Somalis rent from local councils, the highest proportion of any foreign-born population. In nearby Tower Hamlets 2010 data showed that Somalis were twice as likely as white Britons to be behind with the rent. The cost of their economic marginalisation hurts them, and is a toll on the public sector, too.

Education looks an unlikely escape route. Overcrowded houses mean children have nowhere to do their homework. In 2010-11 around 33% of Somali children got five good GCSEs, the exams taken at 16, compared with 59% of Bangladeshi pupils and 78% of Nigerian ones. Parents unable to speak English struggle. They see their children move up a year at school and assume they are doing well (in Somalia poor performers are held back). Their offspring, roped in as translators, are in no hurry to disabuse them.

20130817_BRC232.png

This helps to explain the pitiful employment rates among Britain’s Somalis (see second chart). Just one in ten is in full-time work. Many Somali households are headed by women who came to Britain without their husbands. Fitting work around child care is a struggle. Without work, Somali men while away their days chewing khat, a mild stimulative leaf. Awale Olad, a Somali councillor in London, supports the government’s recent decision to ban the drug. But others fear it will needlessly criminalise a generation of men.

I'm surprised that a sheep farmer doesn't shoot foxes. They certainly do in Wales.

Don't the farm's sheep have lambs every year then?

 

Or does it just fatten male lambs for the market?
