Oh Deer, Oh Deer, Oh Deer

Faux outrage all round this morning following Tory MP Glyn Davies’ tongue-in-cheek tweet about shooting a stag in his garden:

Leading the lefty indignation is, somewhat predictably, the 12 bores over at the League Against Cruel Sports, chaired by one John Cooper QC. And just who is John Cooper QC? The very man who nobly defended the tweeter’s right to tell jokes in the infamous twitter joke trial. Staggering hypocrisy…

    For a start one does dot use a shot gun to shoot a stag. One uses a rifle.

    PhilP says:

    Is Cooper suggesting that Davies should be prosecuted then? That would indeed be hypocritical. Otherwise …

    Crikey – shooting a stag how wrong …

    We all know Venison is grown on shelves in Morrisons

    At last says:

    We finally know Millitwats position on the EUSSR. He will not take us out under any circumstances. All the Tories have to do know is get rid of call me Dave, and it’s job done, isn’t it?

    Left Wing Thought Police – ready at the drip of hat to engage and vilify what most people refer to as banter. Not really surprised.

    FFS Glyn Davies is taking the piss.

    BTW he has a bigger trophy than the stag that got away – Lembit Opik who he defeated at the last election.

    Glyn is a top man.

        He didn’t defeat Lembit, Lembit defeated Lembit. The Tories could have put up a donkey and would still have won. Montgomeryshire voters were really fed up with the self-publicizing pillock. Most of Glyn’s votes were protest votes – he won’t hold the seat at the next election – unless the LDs are stupid enough to let Lembit stand again.

    Fact checker says:

    Perhaps he wasn’t referring to shooting the stag, rather the wet family members. Look at the evidence before you, QC, before making assumptions. What is what is wrong with the judiciary these days?

    Roscoe Rules says:

    You know whenever I walk past a group of baseball capped motherfuckers I often say to my missus ‘I wish I had a 12 bore handy’.
    But suggesting shooting a beautiful Stag Glyn Davies,you have gone too far.

    You don’t shoot deer with a 12 bore, you need a rifle. It must have been an attempt at a gag but feel would a 12 bore

    Cuthbert Gaddabout says:

    Guido – What makes you think only the left hate killing animals for fun?

    Making assumptions there mate –

    I don’ think anyone would ever accuse me of being a lefty – but I loathe the hunting, shotting fishing Tories with a passion.

    Partly because they get off on cruelty………. what sort of tosser gets off killing a sentient creature for fun? Mostly ones with a small dick.

    And partly because they come from that smug Cameron type Tory who thinks they were born to rule and that any ‘pleb’ that tries to succeed doesnt know their place.

    You wanna join the 21st century mate and catch up with the fact you cant put people into little boxes of left and right – Thats what Guardian reading types do.

      Fact checker says:

      Do you also hate the hunting, shooting, fishing Labourites as well?

        Yep. I know plenty of working class fishermen, wildfowlers, game shooters, ferret men, deer stalkers, fox shooters and bunny slotters and not one a Tory

        I enjoy hunting because I enjoy eating. Venison is a particularly lovely meat as is pheasant, wild boar, duck and so on.

      Perse O'Nally says:

      You are an absolute dickhead. No one shoots animals for fun…unless you’re some kind of chav. They’re shot to be eaten. Moron!

        Glyn Davies MP says:

        I was feeling hungry. After all, the b*stard had eaten all the shrubs and there was nothing else in the larder. And the family was starving …

    Ed Balls says:

    That’s nothing I love kicking dogs.

    Angry bird says:

    Cameron’s big idea for today. Cut red tape.

    Hasn’t he already done that one two years ago?

    Robert Edwards says:

    Anyone who would even contemplate shooting a Deer with a 12-bore should not even be permitted to own one. You need, at minimum, a .275″



  21. 37
    Fact checker says:

    I think he should be lauded by the tree huggers. Like the majority I expect he is an omnivore so all he would be doing is obtainig his meat with 0% carbon footprint. Round of applause for the man is in order.

    One sound effect you never want to have as a ringtone, if you work anywhere around Westminster– they might take it personal:

    (*click click*) BAM! That’s the sound solution to a lot of problems, I reckon!

    Col Nut says:

    Enjoying killing animals is what separates us from animals.


  24. 48
    BBC Watch says:

    Media outrage is always selective. Note the BBC story on Helen Grant MP and Minister.

    Usual expenses stuff, but any clue which party she belongs to?

      647 too many says:

      The “Just keep stuffing the public cash into my pockets and stop asking questions about private matters” party.

      It is almost impossible to tell which party affiliation politicians claim solely from the depth to which they trough.

      Is this a trick question?

    What an arselicker Guido is. When he’s not sucking up to Israelis, he’s sucking up to toffs.

    Disco Biscuit says:

    Glyn Davies, as a lawmaker, should know it is illegal to shoot a deer with a shotgun save in very narrow circumstances (for instance if you’ve just been in a collision with it and need to put it out of its misery).
    A rifle with a minumum calibre of .240 and minimum muzzle energy of 1,700 foot pounds is the legal requirement.

    I prefer a Panzershrek as it leaves the beast in manageable pieces for the barbeque. Fuck off John Cooper QC you leftie piece of shite. Much love. Adolf
