Shooting Politics, episode 11, 6 January 2010

In 1995, Jim Barrington was director of the League Against Cruel Sports. Today he works for the Countryside Alliance. Where did it all go right?

In this week’s half-hour Shooting Politics (episode 11) on Fieldsports Channel, Jim explains how he changed and also how the arguments changed. Now heavily involved in the political process that is likely to see the hunting ban repealed later this year, he gives his forecast on whether David Cameron will deliver on his promise. Jim also tells how his former colleagues have treated him since he left the League.
