Vegetarian Sir Paul McCartney Urged To Save Cows
It appears that even the arch enemy of all vegetarians (except pseudo veggie Posh Spice Victoria Beckham) F Word TV chef, puffin and horse eating Gordon Ramsay has higher animal welfare standards than the founders of modern vegetarianism!
In a recent interview Gordon Ramsay revealed that he insists on buying meat for his restaurants that has been ethically bred and collected. "That's absolutely paramount," he said. "We have traceability across the board, where we have a certification of whether it's organic beef, or whether it's a hand-picked scallop or a line-caught sea bass."
A Campaigner from www.poor-cow.co.uk said today "We are hoping that Sir Paul McCartney will step in on the Battery Cow issue as he did on the GM issue that led to the Vegetarian Society banning GM ingredients in approved products. Paul McCartney has been a loyal patron of the Vegetarian Society and helped on many ocassions and we believe he will have serious concerns about both animal welfare and the dangers of genetically modified foods fed to cows"
