(Nick H - Gone Fishin' - puts forward an interesting question as to how far The Meat Licence Proposal should go...)

...how much will be required to obtain a licence, aside from just killing. Will we actually have to go sit lakeside fishing? Or will we just take a fish out of a designated government aquarium, and bash it over the head with a rock?

Likewise game, do we get to go shooting? Or just have to wring a pheasants neck? And the cow - do we have to raise it, or just turn up one day to stick a bolt gun to it's head?

Will we also be asked to pluck/skin/gut/cut the creature up ready for the butchers window?
