    I am very worried about the return of fox hunting, which your support on Wednesday could bring about. Please, please, do the the right thing and vote against this cruelty.

    I would like you to vote against the proposed change to the hunting act. I feel strongly against making fox hunting legal again.


    Thank you

    Dear Mr Mowat

    I urge you to oppose the Assisted Dying Bill on Friday 11th September 2015. I believe it is vitally important that you should be in the House of Commons to vote against the bill.

    There are many strong reasons for opposing the bill, such as


    It allows the lawful killing of innocent people in certain circumstances.

    It is an attack on the “inalienable and inviolable” right to life of human beings as set out in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

    It promotes a human right to suicide, where no such right exists.

    It fails to protect the right to life of all citizens no matter how weak, vulnerable or disabled their lives may be.

    It undermines the common good, those aspects of society which benefit everyone.


    Finally, please let me know whether you will be attending the debate or not and how you intend to vote on the bill. I strongly hope you will oppose it.


    Yours sincerely

    David – thank you for your email – congratulations on your election result. However I do feel rather cast down at the prospect to changes in the law on hunting. I cannot reconcile the way in which management of the fox population is so closely associated with the obvious pleasure and enjoyment of the hunters. I hope that your conscience will be brought into play when you vote.

    Dear David,


    I am writing to implore you to vote against the amendment of the hunting ban. Hunting defenceless animals with other defenceless animals is detestable and it is simply laughable that some dare to call it sport.


    It is quite clear that the majority of the public are against hunting, to bring it back would serve only to remind the public that the Tory party is out of touch and out of date. Hunting with dogs was banned because the majority of the British public were, and still are, appalled at the cruelty to chasing wild animals to the point of exhaustion and allowing them to be ripped apart by packs of dogs.


    The pro-hunting lobby has continually challenged this legislation in the Courts since it passed and each time the Courts ruled that the Hunting Act’s aims were legitimate, and the ban was proportionate. The Courts also reiterated the validity of both the Act and democratic opinion that underpins it: "The Hunting Act 2004 must “be taken to reflect the conscience of a majority of the nation,” according to the then senior law lord, Lord Bingham.


    This latest attempt at challenging the Act is a direct challenge to the opinion of the Courts, and that of the public as well as the House of Commons. I am disappointed that the Government should choose such an approach when they knew they simply did not have the numbers on their side for a straightforward repeal.

    MPS will vote to bring back Foxhunting on Wednesday. I am a constituent in Warrington South, and I am vehemently against Foxhunting as it is a barbaric and torterous pastime reserved for the rich and quite frankly, bored. Please vote against this. This is not the dark ages. We are supposed to be civilised human beings.

    Good morning Mr Mowat


    Please can you confirm which way you will be voting in the Statutory Instrument amendment to the Hunting Act?


    It would seem that the vast majority of your constituents are vehemently against this barbaric return to this violent and bloodthirsty ‘sport’ and would be horrified to see it passed against the wishes of the population at large. I would urge you to vote in line with the wishes of me and your other constituents and vote ‘no’ to this amendment.


    This is not an insignificant issue that the ‘ordinary’ people should not be concerned about, in these times of big decisions about the economy. It matters hugely, as can be seen by the blanket social media coverage and number of petitions in circulation against it. An MP who so blatantly ignores the wishes of their voters will only serve to reinforce the sense of detachment that the public feel towards their elected representatives.

    Please listen to 80% of the British public who believe that fox hunting is a barbaric blood sport & has no place in modern society. Please vote against the amendment to the Hunting Bill on Wednesday.

    copy of email sent to council today !!

    Dear Warrington

    I have made you aware of a Jason Palin bragging about never paying council tax and bragging about avoiding tax too and even has a website setup regarding his business and chef services , and this guy is in Lymm mooring up every other day, you asked me for more information and i passed it to you and I have not had a simple thankyou or reply from you since 5th June ?? JOKE!! regarding it.


    I will forward this email to my local MP who i also have no confidence in and so i will actually send these emails to 10 downing street !! just to make someone aware that in warrington we dont care about none payers !!


    we wonder why we have so many cut backs,?? it is because fools in council not chasing up none payers ( I assume this as none has come back to me or chased up information since 5th June )and when decent paying tax payers come forward like myself we are ignored and not even thanked ! we wonder why the country is in a state, it is because there are far to many lazy people working within public sector who don’t care about none payers ! i have again inserted a new evidence showing the boat and showing that this was seen only this week in centre of lymm,, this Jason Palin lives on the boat and has never paid council tax and brags about this fact ! he also states it is easy for him to avoid tax too,, !! what a life he lives just no worries about paying full tax,, wish i was like that !! ITS BEYOND A JOKE!!


    his boat is called ‘Gusto’ I am told


    If i hear form you again i do if nmot dont really care as i am sending all information to 10 downing street and then jst forget about this matter in the hope that someone there will care a little about none payers,


    more none payers we catch it will better for us all including my children in years to come !!


    There are far to many living on these boats and it is far to easy for them to avoid paying council tax,,!! more checks need to be done ! even when i called warrington council tax department , the caller handler was not even sure if someone living on a boat has to pay council tax ..LOL.. it took several people to figure out if people are required to pay in that situation,,

    what chance have we got when the council dont even know who and who should not be paying council tax..!!

    Hope you vote for a ban on fox hunting it is so wrong in this day and age
  • commented 2015-07-12 09:21:00 +0100
    I think you may have had many of the same requests, but can you confirm you will vote against fox hunting. No one with any conscience could allow this to happen again. I understand country life as was brought up on a Lancashire farm and we had issues with foxes and our chickens but this does not make it right for foxes to be tortured.
  • commented 2015-07-12 07:55:32 +0100
    It would be good to know you will not be voting to soften or repeal the hunting ban Mr Mowat. Can you confirm your position in this please?

    Dear Mr Mowat

    I have seen an outdoor gym in a park in Chester and I thought it was a great idea that would get people fit of all ages and was wondering whether the council would do this in Warrington, preferably the park on Sankey Valley. Please consider this.

    The great outdoor gym company.

    Dear Mr Mowat…


    This is a message beseeching you to vote against the legalization of fox hunting next week.

    It is a barbaric and pathetic sport, which causes completely uneccessary suffering to the poor animals. Not to mention the hideous black karma that is accrued by those who take part, both human and animal alike.


    Sincerely and faithfully,


    Jodie Palmer

    Dear Mr. Mowat, I am writing to urge you to vote against the barbaric act of fox hunting. As one of your constituents I feel very strongly about this and other animal welfare issues. Animals do not have a voice and as human beings we need to be their voice. People on horses surely can have fun on a hack without chasing and hunting a defenceless animals to its torture and death.

    Please vote against the proposed change to the Hunting Act.

    As I am sure you will agree, we must keep animal cruelty where it belongs -in the past.

    Dear Mr Mowat, I implore you to vote against the return of fox hunting. The majority of animal loving people in the UK are against it return. If you love all our British Wildlife like I do you will do the right thing and vote against the reintroduction. The voters who voted for you did not vote for blood sports as it is a barbaric so called sport. We owe it to our wildlife to protect them from harm. Best regards Bob Wilton

    ..and if I’d know you were going to try and do something like this it’s very doubtful I’d have voted for you in the general election.

    Please do not back a repeal of the Hunting Bill. Hunting foxes with dogs is an abhorrence and has no place in the 21st century. We are no longer hunter-gatherers, hunting for ‘sport’ is despicable and deserves to be consigned to history.


    I understand the rationale behind the decision to give members a free vote. It is simply to appease a small minority of Conservative voters, whom also happen to be members of the Countryside Alliance. However, think of your constituents. Think about where you are. Warrington is not noted for its hunting and since you are paid to represent the values and interests of the Warrington electorate, I hope that you bear this detail in mind. You have been trusted by the people of South Warrington to “Do the right thing” (a phrase that all government members seem to trundle out post election), please ensure that this is the case when the vote takes place.

    Hi David,

    I believe you are undecided on repealing the Hunting Ban?

    Even though I really do not understand how you can be undecided on such a cruel and barbaric issue I would ask you to vote on the side of compassion as I know most people in this country are dead against any change to the hunting ban.

    Thank you,

    Dear David As a Lymm resident who voted conservative I am hoping you are not in favour of lifting the ban on fox hunting. This barbaric sport has no place in this world where so many people work hard to prevent cruelty to aninals.

    Dear Mr. Mowat,


    Please do not back a repeal/ammendemtns of the Hunting Bull. Hunting is barbaric and has no place in modern society. We are no longer hunter-gatheres, hunting for ‘sport’ is cruel and needs to be consigned to history.


    The vote is simply to appease to a small minority of Conservative voters to allow them to undertake their cruel ‘hobbies’ and does not represent the views of UK citizens, particularly those of Warrington. I strongly recommend you support the people of Warrington and vote against the ammendments/repeal of the ban.


    I hope you do the right thing.


    Yours sincerely,
