Surely not indeed, would friends or associates of Prince Charles do any of this. Surely they would not get pleasure from seeing animals being attacked and torn apart by other animals.

Just as Prince Charles and his family members would not just shoot and kill wild animals for pleasure and trophies.

Surely not.

Pride's Purge

Fox hunters are not the well-dressed, refined people some think they are.

The real fox hunters are basically little more than thugs; trespassing on and destroying people’s property, torturing their own hounds and and clubbing puppies to death, riding roughshod over ancient protected areas and punching pensioners in the face:

Not to mention enjoying watching beautiful animals being torn apart while still alive for ‘pleasure’.

In a latest example of their thuggish barbarity, a man out walking his dogs was attacked by hunters and hounds from the Mendip Farmers Hunt, resulting in horrific injuries to both of his dogs:

But according to the local police, the thuggish attack will not even be investigated.

Could the reluctance from local police to react to this crime be connected in any way to the fact that a leading member of the hunt is Alastair Martin, the Secretary of the Duchy…

Star wheelchair tennis player Jordanne Whiley MBE said she couldn’t believe how she was treated by the driver A Paralympic medalist and tennis champion was snubbed by an Uber driver – after he saw she was in a wheelchair. Nine times wheelchair tennis grand slam champion Jordanne Whiley MBE, who lives in Ickenham , could not believe her eyes when the driver turned up, noticed her wheelchair and drove off. The 24-year-old sports star became Britain’s youngest ever national women’s singles champion in wheelchair, aged just 14. The inspirational tennis champion was awarded an MBE in 2015 for her contribution to sport . But Jordanne took to Twitter on Monday (June 5) after she was allegedly discriminated against when she ordered an Uber. She wrote: “Can’t believe my Uber driver pulled up, saw my wheelchairs and just drove off! Isn’t that against the law now?!” A further tweet then revealed the name of the driver who left her stranded in Ickenham. An Uber spokesman said: “We do not tolerate

Virgin Media and disability charity Scope are teaming up to highlight disability discrimination in football grounds. New research published today shows that disabled football fans feel excluded from live games. Eight in ten who attend football stadiums across the UK say they have experienced some form of discrimination or other issues resulting from their disability. As a result, the majority (62%) of these disabled fans said these experiences had stopped them from going to a live match again. To highlight the issue and to put disabled fans at the heart of the game, the Saints will wear a special Scope-branded shirt for their home match against Manchester United FC on Wednesday 17 May. Virgin Media, the official shirt sponsor of Southampton FC, is removing its logo from the club’s strip to support its charity partner, Scope, in order to get behind disabled football fans. It forms part of the company’s partnership with the charity to help transform the lives of disabled people. Virgin Media

Premier League clubs have made limited progress on improving access for disabled fans, campaigners have said. Thirteen out of the 20 sides are failing to provide the required number of wheelchair spaces, says the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC). It says only seven clubs have larger, fully equipped toilets, while seven clubs are breaking Premier League rules on providing information to fans. The Premier League said clubs were working hard to improve facilities. Clubs may miss disability deadline Warning over disabled access A BBC report in 2014 found that 17 of 20 clubs did not provide enough wheelchair spaces. Clubs later set a self-imposed deadline to meet standards by August 2017 and the Premier League has pledged to publish a report then to highlight the work carried out. EHRC chair David Isaac said it would launch an investigation into clubs who had failed to meet the minimum requirements and did not publish a clear action plan or timetable for improvement. “The end

Football romantics hoping to witness one of the biggest upsets in FA Cup history on Monday evening were left disappointed by the sight of the mighty Arsenal brushing aside plucky Sutton at Gander Green Lane ground with a routine 2-0 win.

At least, in the 83rd minute, they could take comfort in the reassuring spectacle of the non-league side’s 23-stone reserve goalkeeper guzzling a meat pie in the dugout. Such moments tend to be ripe with symbolism, epitomising an apparently egalitarian competition that allows pub teams the opportunity to dream of toppling Premier League megabrands, destined to be replayed for years to come in humorous clip shows and more serious magic-of-the-Cupdocumentaries.

To TV viewers, the goalkeeper in question, Wayne Shaw, actually looked like he had just stepped out of the pub. He was even reported to have joined Sutton fans in the bar at half-time.

Until Monday, at least, Shaw was deemed to be one of the game’s “good guys”. Before Piegate, he was the club’s unsung hero – Mr Sutton. As well as making occasional forays on to the pitch, he was goalkeeping coach, caretaker of their plastic turf and community liaison officer. He often even slept overnight at the ground to help prepare for match days.

To many, he was the antidote to modern football: a larger-than-life character who put the fun and commitment back into a bland, corporatised game skewed in favour of a powerful, moneyed elite. But it turns out that Shaw was not the messiah, exactly. He had been, in fact, a bit of a naughty boy.

Before the game, Sun Bets offered odds of 8-1 that he would eat a pie on camera during the match. He knew about the bet and scoffed down the food, he said, for “a bit of banter”. For this one misjudgment he has been hung out to dry.

Sochi loses right to host bobsleigh & skeleton World Championships BBC News reported on Tuesday

The Russian city of Sochi will not host next year’s bobsleigh and skeleton World Championships.

The International Bobsleigh and Skeleton Federation said it would not be “prudent” to hold the championships in Russia, a country which has been accused of state-sponsored doping.

A report on 9 December claimed more than 1,000 Russians benefited from a doping cover-up between 2011 and 2015.

A new host city will be named in the forthcoming days.

This weekend, two World, three European and five British records were broken in the first national para-swimming competition since the Rio Games. With 16 swimming Rio Paralympics medallists taking part, it was a full house for the National Para-Swimming Championships in Manchester. Over 250 Para-Swimmers competed at the Manchester Aquatics Centre on 10 and 11 December. Amongst the talented line-up was double Paralympic silver and bronze medallist (200m freestyle, 200 individual medley and 100m backstroke), Jessica-Jane Applegate. The UEA Norwich swimmer, 20, broke two World and two European in the S14 100m butterfly and S14 400m freestyle. She clocked 1:06.86 in the butterfly, breaking her own World mark set in last year’s event- also a British record. Soon after, she smashed the 400m freestyle World record in 4:31:05, knocking over seven seconds off the old time. Her S14 rival, Bethany Firth, was in great form too after the Rio Paralympics where she took three golds and a silver.
