Tory Toffs' £5,000 Blood Sports Junket

Yesterday it was Chris Huhne who was staring down the barrel, but for six Tory toffs there has been a very different target in the crosshairs. Step forward Sir Gerald Howarth, Graham Brady, Geoffrey Clifton-Brown, Sir Edward Garnier, Simon Reevell and Bill Wiggin. The six have all declared they were treated to a weekend of blasting birds out of the sky at 2,500 acre Catton Hall estate just before Christmas that cost over £5,000 courtesy of the blood sports lobby.

Catton Hall, a country estate that has been in the same hands since the fifteenth century, offers guests a 350 bird bag and use of its luxury dining room.

Quote of the Day

Lucy Allan explains her positive comments about the Brexit Party…

“If EU elections are held, Leave supporting voters will want to vote for Leave supporting candidates… Usual party loyalties will be eclipsed by the Leave v Remain divide. It’s good to see strong candidates in the Leave camp. However, I sincerely hope we leave the EU before these elections are held so that we can move on and not waste time and money on unnecessary EU elections.”
