That would be millionaire tory banker, posing next to the beautiful lion he has just shot for sport on his holiday

Do you know, I really dislike the word c**t, but on this occasion I cannot think of a suitable substitute?

Cover him with fox scent and let him loose among the hounds.

Or even better. Cover him with wildebeest scent and lock him in the lion enclosure at Longleat.

It would have been much more pleasant to read if the lion had had him, minus the gun, for just one minute.

catgirl1976 Sun 11-Sep-11 16:31:44

I just cannot get my head around how someone could do that. I like the Longleat plan.....

Where did you find the 'tory' connection?

sad why do some insist on killing for fun?

Would also like to see the Longleat plan put into action.

But this is the reality in Africa - there is a big 'Hunter' phenomenon ..

Did anyone remember the programme done by Louis Theroux on the exact same thing??

In the Times article, it was stated that he was a Tory donor. Sorry can't link to the article.

catgirl1976 Sun 11-Sep-11 16:35:07

He is a major donor to the tory party

DogsBestFriend Sun 11-Sep-11 16:35:12

Cunt just about sums this... well, this cunt.... up.

I don't care if he's Tory, Socialist or Monster Raving Loony Party-sympathising, whether he's a millionaire banker or a council-flat residing lone parent on benefits, he's still a cunt.

I read somewhere that wealthy Arabs pay to shoot animals in Africa with machine guns. A lot skill involved there then.

EggyAllenPoe Sun 11-Sep-11 16:42:33

what a cunt. but not for being either a conservative donor or a banker, or indeed a millionaire.

as DBBF said.

Is that a recent photo?

Just shock

troisgarcons Sun 11-Sep-11 16:45:05

Oh ok.

So it's just Tory bashing rather than bashing animal killers?


catgirl1976 Sun 11-Sep-11 16:45:14

Am not bothered about his politics either - was just trying to introduce him............ like

"This is Dave - Dave is an ex BOE director and has a keen interest in politics. In his spare time, Dave is a cunt of the highest order who takes pleasure in shooting some of the earths most beautiful animals. Not for food or anything - just because it makes him feel like a man. Did I mention Dave is an absolute cunt?"

That sort of thing

itsatiggerday Sun 11-Sep-11 16:53:22

Oh just... here

For the record, I don't hunt, have never hunted and am entirely sentimental about beautiful animals and birds of whom I have seen many in the bush. However if you want a more informed opinion then do read the article. Maybe it'll highlight that a sanctimonious slating of individuals who do hunt isn't an entirely helpful response.

Andrewofgg Sun 11-Sep-11 16:55:07

Wasn't there a Monty Python sketch about mosquito-hunting with ever more deadly weapons?

Itsjustafleshwound Sun 11-Sep-11 16:55:35

He gave Ken Clarke £5000 six years ago ....

DogsBestFriend Sun 11-Sep-11 16:59:42

Thanks Tigger, but sanctimonious and unhelpful or not I'll stick to my view that anyone who hunts is a cunt.

Andrewofgg Sun 11-Sep-11 17:01:29

Oh DBF what's happening to us, we agree again!

Prepared to make exceptions for those brought up to it who gave it up or who did it a long time ago. This chap was born 1935 and his hunting days may be over now.

DogsBestFriend Sun 11-Sep-11 17:02:47

smile Andrew.

TidyDancer Sun 11-Sep-11 17:09:54

Oh, I've seen this. Sick sick sick.

And no, troisgarcons, it's not. Plainly.

catgirl1976 Sun 11-Sep-11 17:12:37

No tigger I am still going to slate him. I wasn't commenting on whether or not I could understand African economies allowing this sort of thing, which is a different discussion altogether. I also don't give a toss about his political leanings.

He shot a lion for sport. He's a cunt.
