Quote of the Day: Blair on fox hunting

Asked if banning fox hunting was a mistake, Blair tells the Guardian,
"I think yes on balance it was in the end. Its not that I particularly like hunting or have ever engaged in it or would. I didn't quite understand, and I reproach myself for this, that for a group of people in our society in the countryside this was a fundamental part of their way of life.... [it's] not one of my finest policy moments".
Bet that will piss off a lot of Labour people who have foolishly convinced themselves that fox hunting is something that only posh upper-class toffs do/did.
