Minister, don't make an ass of yourself over hunting ban

Few things are quite as enjoyable as when Piety meets Power. For Piety in Opposition can propose a wind-driven economy, and airliners powered by watermills, and a ban on carbon dioxide by motor cars.

Piety can promise to eliminate atomic radiation from the world, and to espouse natural, organic farming. (Though, we actually had the wind- driven economy before. It was called the Middle Ages. And we also had organic farming, which also goes by the name of the Famine -- and still does, whenever you try to feed millions by that means).
