SCORES of hunt supporters are expected to gather in Kendal today (Friday) to vent their anger towards Alun Michael, the Minister of State for Rural Affairs, who is due to deliver a keynote speech at a Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs conference on rural issues being staged at the Castle Green Hotel. The minister was responsible for guiding the hunting bill through Parliament and the Countryside Alliance has described him "as one of the most bungling ministers the country has ever seen."
