Hunting the hunters

The Telegraph predicts that Blair will focus heavily on the hunting issue + may try to push it through with an Act.
As Melanie Phillips comments, you would think that there was no terrorism threat, that public services did not need urgent reform...
The whole hunting debacle threatens to undermine the moral validity of democracy in this country - if so many resources can be diverted to such a minority issue, what good are the rules + traditions of parliament? If the system can be used as a personal tool to implement prejudicial policies, what is it good for?
