Simon Hart wants a repeal of the hunting ban

The South Pembrokeshire Hunt

The South Pembrokeshire Hunt

A LOCAL MP has told press that the newly elected government should repeal the hunting ban sooner rather than later.

Simon Hart MP, a former chief executive of the Countryside Alliance, was quoted in a front page article in The Independent on Saturday (May 16) as saying: “We need to get on with this and I am sure the Government will want to resolve the matter quickly and efficiently. The commitment to a vote on repeal has been in the manifesto since 2005 and we now have the opportunity to deliver that and get rid of a law that has been a running sore in the countryside for over 10 years.”

Mr Hart added: “The vast majority of my colleagues understand that this whole debate was never really about hunting or animal welfare, but about Labour MPs having a go at what they thought was an easy Conservative target.”

“The election result has shown once and for all that Labour’s obsession with fighting a class war has rendered it unelectable, so it is only right that we remove laws based on this prejudice from the statute book.”

Supporting Mr Harts view, Sir Barney White-Spunner, executive chairman of the Countryside Alliance said that the Hunting Act had been a farce from the start: “Even Tony Blair has admitted that it was a mistake. The new Parliament has an opportunity to right a wrong that was done 10 years ago and we are confident that MPs will take it.

David Cameron is an enthusiastic supporter of hunting, and before becoming Tory leader in 2005 he rode with the hounds as part of the Heythrop Hunt.

Speaking against plans for a repeal, Chris Pitt, deputy director of campaigns for the League Against Cruel Sports said: “A repeal of the Hunting Act would be a massive backwards step for animal welfare and we cannot accept the cruelty that it would legalise.”

The Independent reported that any repeal could be given a free vote within the next 12 months, with 56 SNP MP’s expected to abstain as Scotland has its own hunting law.

    Who voted for this cruel waste of space? I do not know anyone who voted Tory, nor would I want to. The sixty odd percent of the country that did not vote Tory, will not allow them to stay in power. The people will remove this heartless government anyway they can, one thing for certain is that they will not wait 5 years or waste their time with the ballot box.

    well of all the problems that need solving in the world, let alone right here..what a waste of time and space..regressive moves..yeah! lets be backward, why bother improving anything..lets go chase and kill foxes for fun..tally ho..this man is paid?

    Really cannot understand what the fuss is about, you need to control foxes – the who ha is just because they look cuddly wuddly likkle anumals, no one cares about ugly amimals or slugs do they?
    If these ppl complaining about this mp didn’t eat farmed animals in which animals suffer then killedin their millions but were vegans I’d more readily accept their opinions but its just silliness and class war.
    ps I’m working class and I v oted for him, indeed a majority of ppl did here in Pembrokeshire

    Tomos, how did you get that a majority voted for him? He had the most votes, yes, but it wasn’t a majority. Including those that did not cast a vote, over 40,000 people didn’t vote for Simon Hart. Of those that did vote, over 22,700 didn’t vote for him, so his 17,626 votes being less than those that didn’t vote for him, it’s not a majority. His true vote was just over 30% of the ward electorate, so just under 70% didn’t want him as their MP. The actual vote being 43.7% means that 56.3% don’t support him, me being one of them. I hope Peter is right and the people rise up against these self serving conservative t$*@s.

    ‘Based on prejudice’ he says ‘Obsession with a Class war’ he says

    Oh my! you are precious aren’t you Mr Hart ? Rubbing your hands at the chance to Rip foxes to bits while on horse back donning your uniforms symbolic, of the Class war the upper echelons imposed on the poor

    don’t flatter yourself Mr hart, For us, the banning of this archaic and barbaric act is about not wanting animals to experience unnecessary pain when there are less barbaric methods to deal with this issue

    For you and your cronies however its quite apparent that you all see the banning of this truly disgusting act has been evidence of the crumbling tyranny of the upper classes and rural elite So much did that disturb you Mr Hart, you took a huge pay drop to become an MP under the guise of someone who cared about people in Carmarthenshire.

    Yet you still voted yes for the bedroom Tax while there are only 30 unsupported one bedroom council properties. Many people in trapped in poverty here as a result of those supporting this including you Mr hart.

    oh an there was that Yes vote for fracking/coal gasification! How will it pay for the NHS Mr hart ? will that be because many lives will be cut short in the future as a result ?

    You don’t care about your people Mr hart all you care about is voting yes to wars and yes to blood sports Yes to badger culls that did not bring back one dead badger with TB

    I put it to you MR hart that you are a one policy man this is the policy to restore a sport symbolic of your hegemony. How dare you accuse the ordinary working man of starting a class war ? How dare you scream prejudice towards us when the rich and the upper echelons have built your fortunes by pressing your boot of discrimination upon the necks of generation after generation. ?

    You and your cronies were contrived by such acts to keep the best part of the working class Broken

    I put it to you that you Mr hart who took a massive pay drop to become an MP in order overturn the ban are the one obsessed with a class war. We just want opportunity to raise our children in a healthy world run my leaders with compassion and respect for the land and all living on it

    WE JUST WANT TO SEE ANIMALS AND HUMANS ALIKE TREATED WITH THE DECENCY ALL LIFE DESERVES.
    Time will hold your actions your utterances as shameful

    Well what a surprise……I don’t think.

    I hate the way supporters of this cruel sport imply that it is only town/city people want this ban well let me tell you it is not. I want this ban and all of my friends want this ban and we live in the country. ( Tomas I love all animals including the ugly ones, oh and I don’t eat meat). Before someone jumps on the bandwagon and mentions the rich this is not the case, you can fox hunt with out being rich.

    Simon Hart only got in because some people were too apathetic to vote and others were scared into believing the Conservative party hype about the SNP. Perhaps if they had read his voting record on They Work For You website they would have changed their minds.
    How about standing up for the poor in this county for a change.

    If having you re-elected was not such a serious issue for the many in your constituency you have failed to speak for I would find your comments amusing. We are in the year 2014. Labours official opposition is no longer brimming with the working class/ ‘class war’ types you talk of, nor was it when the Hunting Act came into effect so this stance you are taking in this article makes your accusation appear as hideous as you look when you gentrify yourself by dressing up in your scarlet uniform and cravat to go out with a pack of hounds to kill foxes in such a cruel way, a tradition in your circles which has been historically practised in order for gentrify ones identity

    I am glad someone raised that this is not a class issue because its really not. what makes it a class issue is this sport would have been banned years ago if it was not for the hunt being such a domineering group in society fighting for what sets them apart from the rest.

    Talking of prejudice as well as having obvious prejudices towards those who are anti hunt, you also have prejudices against the foxes you kill.

    A while back research was conducted on farmer’s opinions towards foxes in Wiltshire. Rabbits and badgers were seen as more of a threat to farms than foxes. Two thirds of farmers did not see foxes as pests and actually argued that foxes can be seen as ‘beneficial by consuming rabbits and other pests of agricultural crops. ’

    “The election result has shown once and for all that Labour’s obsession with fighting a class war has rendered it unelectable, so it is only right that we remove laws based on this prejudice from the statute book.”

    I think you have a cheek saying this Mr Hart, as far as I am concerned it not not a class issue although the Conservative Party like to imply it is.

    I do not believe in animal cruelty in any form, I am just as concerned about the hounds and the horses welfare as I am the foxes.
    Saying it is a class issue is making you sound quite snobbish which is not a nice trait. As far as I am concerned we are all equal but someone us like tearing foxes to pieces some of us don’t.

    Your logic escapes me, if 56.3% didn’t vote that means they didn’t support anyone else either. If they can’t be bothered to turn up then it doesn’t matter to them who wins.

    Baring in mind Bob was responding to Tomos who said “Most people in Pembrokeshire voted for him” The logic in his response is very easy to grasp Flashbang.

    Sorry to read about your struggle with syllogism

  13. Delyth

    May 19, 2015 at 6:17 am

    Most people who disagree with this disgusting sport know there is nothing ‘Classy’ about it Mr Hart. All that is demonstrated from those advocating and taking part in this sport, is that there are section of people in society who get a kick out of watching animals suffer, some going as far as to dress it all up with a bit of pomp and ceremony to furnish themselves with the delusion of a position further up social stratus than other individuals in society

    It’s awfully puke worthy to hear such a person then claim, that those who do not fit into their self congratulating imaginary position, are picking on them for due their imaginary position. it appears that your head is so far up your backside it is reappearing out of your mouth.

    Paint it how you will Mr Hart your narcissism is unbecoming

    May 19, 2015 at 6:37 am

    I’m hoping that being a devolved issue there will never be a reverse in Wales Mr Hart, but don’t threat, it seems your party have an alternative cruelties you can enjoy in your own community! such as the highest inequality in Europe crippling the most vulnerable… Oh and also you will get to watch young people working 30 hours a week for less than minimum wage, who will not doubt be talking up jobs that were previously at least that. Oh Joy!

    tough!

    you had 13 years to chage it, but when bliar got a majority despite getting fewer votes than for decades you must have thought it’ was ok then?

    just proves you have no principles

    there are some good points made in this discussion aboutfood banks inequality, but lets not forget inequality gre even faster under blair than that “dreadful” thatcher woman

    Tomas I resent being classed as ‘another’.

    Being kind to animals and being a vegetarian are two different things. I love animals that is why I don’t eat meat, some people are not really interested in animals as such but think it is unhealthy to eat meat.

    I can never understand this class thing you are going on about.

    There are members of the Labour Party that are exceedingly wealthy, with families that are multi millionaires, to me it seems to be the Conservative Party that bring up the class thing all the time.

    How do you know that I don’t come from a wealthy background? You don’t have to be poor to stand up for the least well-off in life.

    May 19, 2015 at 7:33 pm

    Tomas
    Firstly, I was never a Blairite

    Secondly, ‘you had 13 years to chage it,’ Change what ?

    Thirdly I am not a labour supporter so many assumptions!

    Forthly My very first point was those like him who dress this barbaric sport up as a class issue just like he has here are the ones waging class war where do I perpetuate it ? I was not the one that raised the stupid assumption that is was a class war but instead responding to the idiotic delusion that a class war is being waged on the rich with regards to the issue of tearing foxs up for fun. when historically the ‘class war’ this proper fool speaks of, was waged from the top down

    My last point to say that a Class war is being waged by a Blarite government is the most hideous accusation and how am I perpetuating a war through opinion ? It was not me who chucked my rattles out the pram putting myself forward as an MP over a single issue gearing myself up for ‘class war’ over a classless barbaric sport. to hell with the other issues that need addressing in this this area.

    Delyth, people in glass houses……. “Baring”
    As for syllogism, it looks like you found the word of the day somewhere and tried to hang it on to something where it doesn’t belong. 56.3% not voting does not mean they are supporting anyone, it just means that most of them couldn’t be bothered to get off their arses and vote.

    Flashbang

    Whilst part of this statement is correct some of it isn’t.

    Yes many people didn’t vote, some were unable due to illness, some because they couldn’t walk to the polling station, some were still waiting for their postal vote to come through and others didn’t bother.

    Of the ones that didn’t bother there were some that said “Well they’re all the same” but then there are the ones that when asked if they voted and they answered “No” if you then went on then to ask them if they were Conservative then, they would spit and splutter and say “No Way” or something such- like.

    If these people had bothered to think about this before hand we may have had a different MP for the county.

    Good for you Paris for putting words and opinions into the mouths of those who didn’t vote. It’s all pure speculation on your part. This is not about who won or lost it’s about people coming to the conclusion that because people didn’t vote they automatically were against the winner.

  21. Paris

    May 20, 2015 at 9:52 am

    That’s where you are wrong Flashbang.

    After the election I asked many people in the town where I live about the results, everything I have written in the above comment was said to me by these people.

    I have not made anything up so it is not speculation on my part. One person I spoke to didn’t even know who David Cameron was.

    Now you are misquoting me Flashbang. I did not say 56.3% didn’t vote, it was 56.3% that voted for someone other than Simon Hart. It was 30.1% that didn’t vote. Which ever way you look at it, Tomos was wrong to say a majority voted for him. He simply got more votes than any of the other candidates.

    Simple maths. Get yourself a calculator if you need one. you can forget the ‘over’ Just use the numbers.

    17,626 voted for Simon Hart over 40,000 people didn’t vote for Simon Hart.

    Between them the nutter greens who think meat eating is more deadly to the planet than terrorism and UKIP (what can you say about them:) ) got roughly half of the tory vote but got two MPs.

    Quite a typical move, when you are loosing an argument to be picking words out in an attempt to deflect from the obvious It is hardly anyone else’s fault that you can not see the logic in bobs response to a comment claiming a majority of people in Pembrokeshire voted for Simon Hart, when in fact a majority never voted for Simon Hart

    Shame that Simon Hart’s comments for the support of fox hunting did not appear during the run-up to the recent election. I am sure he gained confidence when scuttling around south Pembs. seeing all those blue posters attached to field fence posts. Well, enough to state those comments now with the backing of the PM and another guaranteed 5 years in the job with a 17% pay increase on the horizon. Problem is there are too many small holders in South Pembs. that consider themselves to be the landed gentry. By the way, where is my superfast broadband?

THE Pembrokeshire Coast Charitable Trust is inviting people to host a Puffin Party this July, to celebrate the Trust’s 6th birthday and raise vital funds.

The Trust has raised more than £380,000 from a range of sources since 2018, including projects such as People, Paths & PollinatorsMake More Meadows and Wild About Woodlands.

It has also provided Force for Nature Grants to help community groups and local organisations boost biodiversity, act on climate change or educate others on these important topics.

Puffin Parties were added to the list of fundraising activities last summer, and proved so popular that they are being brought back for another year.

Director of the Pembrokeshire Coast Charitable Trust, Katie Macro, said: “We are delighted to see the return of the Puffin Parties. These events not only help us raise essential funds but also bring the community together in celebration of our beautiful natural environment.

“Once again, there’s plenty of inspiration on hand to get you started, including some party food recipe cards (with healthier options available), invitation templates and some ideas for party activities.

“We encourage everyone to get involved and help us celebrate by arranging a tea party, coffee morning or cake sale with friends, family, colleagues, or the local community during the month of July. As well as having fun, you’ll be making a difference in protecting our stunning coastline and safeguarding it for future generations.”

RWE launches pre-application consultation for RWE Pembroke Battery

Published

on

TO support their decarbonisation ambitions as part of Pembroke Net Zero Centre, RWE is progressing proposals to develop a battery energy storage system on its land adjacent to Pembroke Power Station. 

Battery energy storage plays a crucial role in the integration of renewable energy sources, such as solar and wind, into the power grid, excess renewable energy can be stored and fed into the grid when needed. Electricity is consumed in real time and this technology will, where possible, enable homes and businesses to be powered by renewable energy.  

The consultation on RWE’s plans launches Monday 17 June 2024 and will end on Monday 15 July 2024. RWE is asking the community for their views on these plans and has launched a consultation where local people can provide feedback on the planning application. 

The proposed development would be located on a 5.1 hectare area to the south of the current power station and would comprise 212 Battery Containers, 106 Power Conversion Systems (PCS) enabling connectivity to the grid, and associated infrastructure. 

The battery would have a maximum charge / discharge power of 350 megawatts and would connect via underground cables to the grid at the adjacent National Grid 400 kV substation. Once fully operational, Pembroke Battery would be capable of storing enough electricity to meet the average daily domestic energy needs of more than 72,0001 typical UK homes. 

In line with RWE’s commitment to protect and enhance local environments, the company has pledged to deliver various biodiversity measures as part of the proposals. Field margins will be enhanced by species-rich meadow planting, native woodland and scrub planting, while a new large pond will be provided and managed to support local wildlife. The periphery of the development site will also be further enhanced with bat and bird boxes, insect hotels and reptile hibernation shelters around the field edges. A Habitat Management Plan will ensure the habitats created are managed sensitively in support of local wildlife for the lifetime of the project.

Commenting on the proposals, Richard Little, Pembroke Net Zero Centre Director, said: “RWE Pembroke Battery represents the next step in our plans to invest in new innovative energy technologies, as part of our vision for Pembroke Net Zero Centre. We would like to thank those who engaged with us in our Green Hydrogen consultation and encourage the community to get involved with the consultation process, learn more about our battery energy storage proposals, and have their say on the proposals.” 

Members of the community can contact the project team and leave feedback via the project website rwe.pembrokenetzerocentre.co.uk/battery, telephone 01646 370090, email [email protected] or by writing to ’Freepost PNZC Consultation’.  

Local people can also join RWE at an in-person event at South Pembrokeshire Golf Club on 24th June 2024 between 2pm and 7pm to speak with project team members, ask questions and provide feedback. 

Pembroke Net Zero Centre has a critical role to play in Wales’ and the UK’s pathway to Net Zero. By decarbonising its current operations at Pembroke Power Station, while investing in new innovative technologies, such as battery energy storage and hydrogen generation, RWE can establish Pembroke at the forefront of South Wales’ low carbon future.

Megan’s Starr foundation launches Bottle Top Collection Appeal

Published

on

THE Megan’s Starr Foundation, a charity dedicated to supporting young people’s mental health and combating bullying, has recently launched an innovative recycling initiative and is calling on the community for help. The Milford Haven-based foundation is asking for donations of old bottle tops, both metal and plastic, to be dropped off at the Megan’s Starr Community Coffee House in Milford Haven.

This appeal is part of the foundation’s ongoing efforts to support mental health and community engagement through creative and sustainable projects. Bottle tops collected will be used in various community art projects and workshops, aimed at fostering a sense of togetherness and promoting mental wellbeing.

The Megan’s Starr Foundation was established in memory of Megan Evans, a vibrant 14-year-old who tragically took her own life after enduring severe bullying. Her mother, Nicola Harteveld, founded the charity to prevent other families from experiencing similar heartbreak and to provide much-needed mental health support to young people in Pembrokeshire.

In addition to their recycling efforts, the foundation offers a wide range of services including counselling, educational workshops, and support groups. They also run the Speakeasy Coffee Van, a mobile unit that brings support directly to young people in rural areas, offering barista training and mental health resources.

To contribute to the bottle top collection, community members can drop off their donations at the coffee house or arrange for a volunteer to collect them. The foundation expressed their gratitude for the community’s continued support, emphasising that even small acts of kindness can have a significant impact.

For more information on how to get involved or to learn about the foundation’s other initiatives, visit their website at Megan’s Starr Foundation.
