I was interested to see the letter in the Adver of 29 January from James Barrington. Mr Barrington attacks the RSPCA and describes himself as an Animal Welfare Consultant.

Can I point out that Mr Barrington is a paid spokesman for the Countryside Alliance whose only interest in animals is to promote the killing of animals for fun?

The Countryside Alliance will stop at nothing in order to try to overturn the ban on hunting and giving themselves spurious titles is but one of them.
