Queen guitarist Brian May (left) and Scottish National Party MP Angus Robertson at an anti-fox hunting rally in London yesterday. The British government has been forced into a dramatic climbdown after its plans to relax a ban on fox hunting were supposedly halted by the decision of the Scottish National Party and its 56 MPs to block the change. The vote by lawmakers to amend the rules, set for today, is to be postponed.
