Date added: 25/02/2012 School children denied chance to visit hunt meet

School children denied chance to visit hunt meet Charlotte White, H&H deputy news editor 24 February, 2012 Subscribe to Horse & Hound and save up to 35% today Children at a Huntingdon primary school were denied a visit to the Cambridgeshire with Enfield Chace hunt after complaints from a parent. Pupils from Ashbeach School in Ramsey St Mary were due to attend a meet at Ellington on 7 February. But the trip was cancelled after a parent threatened to turn up with a group of antis. Joint-master Mike Burman said: “The school has brought children to this meet for 20 years. “However the meet was called off anyway because of frost.” William Burton, Eastern regional director for the Countryside Alliance said: “It is a real shame that just because of one parent’s prejudices, the children have been prevented from watching one of the British countryside’s oldest and finest traditions. “The children would not have been going out with the hunt but instead would have experienced the atmosphere at a meet, and got up close with the beautiful horses and hounds.” Ashbeach School hit the headlines last year after a parent complained that pupils had been taken to watch wildfowling.

""最氣人的是 初步斷定兇手時便一口咬定是中國人所為 歧視極重 " I think you may have misunderstood a bit here, smetmioes when the western people say "chinese", they just mean yellow skin people, they dun necessarily mean people from China or Chinese people. plus they didnt 一口咬定, you got that from the HK media rite? Some of the HK journalists might have said that coz it would make the incident more related to us and attract more readers. I live in England, and the media never said "The killer was Chinese" stuff like that, so pls dun generalise and accused the media of being racist. :)Mr 喬, I was the one who asked you to write the "Deep Blue" lyric for me at the book fair last year, I highly doubt if you remember me, dun worry if you dun."
