Kevin, your last post equates fox Hunting with bear baiting, cock fighting, etc. The point is that these have already been banned. Hunting and fishing are still practiced. The government promised to have a vote on the banning of fox hunting. Kevin, your last post equates fox Hunting with bear baiting, cock fighting, etc. After due process the bill failed.
None of those "sports" would have been banned if the people who enjoyed them had had their way.
The elected members of Parliament have by overwhelming majorities voted for fox-hunting and stag hunting with hounds to have the same legal status as bear-baiting, cock-fighting etc. Unelected members of the House of Lords have interrupted the process of implementing the ban, true enough. However when Nigel Parsons says, in respect of this, that "After due process the bill failed" - well, it might possibly mislead some people. If they aren't too familiar with tey British system of government, they could well assume that "due process" implied the actions of a democratically elected parliament.
