Anti-fox hunting protestors Victoria Eisermann and Pola Pospieszalska outside the Houses of Parliament. They were there to protest a bid to repeal the Hunting Act, but the motion was postponed. Be warned: Not all the images in this article are like this. [Image: PA].

How can anyone support a prime minister who admits she wants to re-legalise cruelty to animals?

Remember how the Mirror published a leaked email to hunt masters, calling for them to back hunt-supporting Tory election candidates in order to end the ban on hunting and killing foxes?

Well, Theresa May admitted yesterday that she would bring back fox hunting – igniting a storm of protest from the public.

That’s right – she deliberately upset the people she wants to vote for her and her party.

Be warned – some of the responses that follow are graphic, or describe in graphic detail events at a hunt.

Whose side do you take?

If you oppose Mrs May’s choice, make your opinion clear and sign the petition. When I signed, 44,982 people had done so already.
