Red fox cub – (Graphic descriptions included!) As an election nears in the UK we are faced with a similarly stark choice that the US faced in the final months of their election cycle. On one side we have the UK’s version of Bernie Sanders, Labour leader @jeremy_corbynmp.
Compassionate, informed, progressive and with a goal of creating a fairer society, a society where decisions are made to benefit the many, not the few. On the other we have the UK’s very own Donald Trump, Conservative leader @theresamay.
Tax cuts for the rich, continued decimation of our National Health Service, out of control spending on Defence and the return of the barbaric sickness of fox hunting all await the possible election of a party that serves only the privileged yet prejudiced elite. No concern is given in our parliamentary democracy that 84% of the UK population oppose this despicable cruelty just like no regard is given to the environmental value of these apex predators. Beautiful young cubs, just like this one, urinating and defecating in unbridled terror, will be routinely thrown alive to packs of slavering hounds, their tiny bodies torn limb from limb. The blood from their corpses is then smeared on the faces on young children, a most perverted initiation to this Victorian obscenity. This is the sort of despicable cruelty that only a psychopath could inflict, yet is supported by @theresamay.
This is the blood stained face of our current Prime Minister, representing a government that seeks to inflict immeasurable suffering on innocents and I will fight with every breath to ensure that this cancer, this perversion is left where it belongs, as part of our rich and often shameful history. Our world is faced with some stark choices at the moment but I will always choose compassion over abuse, honour and decency over privilege and entitlement, reason and logic over Victorian ignorance and prejudice. I will vote that this disgusting sickness is left where it rightly belongs and that’s why I will vote for @jeremy_corbynmp @andyparkinsonphoto @thephotosociety @uklabour @jeremy_corbynmp #foxcub #uklabour #fightforwhatisright #honour
