If a crime were committed, you would expect the authorities to act accordingly and investigate.

If that crime was caught on video you’d think it would be difficult for the perpetrator to avoid justice.

If that crime was an act of premeditated violence then you would expect the authorities to be most vigorous in their pursuit of a conviction.

If the person who committed that crime was clearly identified and a pattern of behaviour established you’d think it would be an open and shut case.

If all of the above were true in respect of a single case then one could safely assume there would be little work for the police and CPS to do and justice would be served without delay.


Jane (Miller) Goring

You’d be wrong.

You’d be wrong because the violent assault was against a sab, someone just trying to protect wildlife in their spare time, uphold the law for genuinely altruistic reasons. You’d be wrong because the person who committed the crime was a fox hunter. You’d be wrong because that person was very wealthy. You’d be wrong because that person was part of the Goring hotel dynasty, a favourite with the Queen and regularly attended by Lords and other aristocratic hunt supporters. You be wrong because there does indeed seem to be different set of laws, one for ordinary people like you, me and the vast majority of the population, and another set for those wealthy enough to have friends in the right places.

We all know the Hunting Act is a poorly written piece of legislation and difficult to get convictions due to this and we know not all police forces are even interested in policing it, however this isn’t the Hunting Act. This is a simple case of assault, with a weapon against a person engaging in non-violent direct action. The police have said they won’t be prosecuting Jane Goring due to lack of evidence. Now I’m no legal expert but I’m fairly certain that Jane has committed an offence firstly by using her horse as a weapon and then striking someone violently with her riding whip SEVENTEEN times. A person who had stepped in to save another from being ridden down. All of this was captured by various cameras and the video is clear.

How much evidence do the police need?

If this isn’t a case of extreme bias by Sussex Police then I’m 7 foot tall.

Please help fund a private prosecution. All the details can be found here.

    The woman is a disgrace & as for British Police Force, just shocking

  2. Sarah says:

    Good article. The police have always been biased towards hunt supporters, sadly cash speaks volumes.

    This os no more than we already know & it shows why the police in many rural communities has lost all credibility & respect from the majority ofvthe general public. As said before all affiliations with any societies should be forbidden to police officers of any rank.

    It is frightening to see how much out of control this woman is. This is a vicious, uncontrolled attack – no question about it – and if the Police are not able to see this then we need to know why their vision is so limited. She has clearly lost all sense of reason and if we can see that – why can’t the Police? Let me guess xxx
