You can always count on Dr Brian May to be the voice of reason. This time, he's speaking out against David Cameron's Conservative government for their plans to sneak fox hunting in again through the back door.

The Queen guitarist and acclaimed songwriter has long been a passionate supporter of animal rights and is using his platform to condemn the "sick" tactics of the government.

Brian told The Mirror: "This smashes the Hunting Act. They will be able to bring back the whole pack of dogs.

"This is to benefit people who want to pursue a sadistic bloodsport for fun."

Brian held up a graphic picture of a fox killed by hunters during an appearance on Newsnight before branding the government "lying bastards".
