Animal welfare and the Tories - now there's an oxymoron

Hilary Benn's excellent piece for the Guardian's CiF on the Tory proposals to repeal the hunting ban is well worth a read. My favourite line is:

'The Conservatives' ironically named "animal welfare spokesperson" said recently that bringing back hunting with dogs will be something that a Tory government would do soon after the election – with a government bill, in government time.'

Animal welfare and the Tories, surely this is an oxymoron of the modern age.
