SIR – In his letter of November 14, Jon Burgess suggested that the hunting issue is just spin and soundbite for the Green Party.

Animal welfare is an important part of the Green Party manifesto for social and environmental justice. Too often we are accused of being a single issue environmental pressure group. We are so much more than that. Our policies on health, education, the economy, policing, civil liberties and animal welfare mean that the voters are increasingly turning to the Green Party as a radical alternative to Labour and the Conservatives.
