Boris Vs UN & Paul McCartney

Boris Vs UN & Paul McCartney

Mayor of London Boris Johnson Vs Ghent, The UN, Sir Paul McCartney, Health, The Environment, The Vegetarian Society, and The Bristol Vegan Fayre

Cook and author of a new cookbook Tony Bishop-Weston , 48, says EU elections for MEPs are a good opportunity to send a wake-up call to Boris Johnson and his Tory pals. He says “Boris should be following UN advice and leading the way. Instead he’s promised to make matters worse. In the EU elections we can vote with our hearts for the good of the planet rather than the voting mentality that led to the election of Boris in the first place. ”

With the wealth of evidence accumulating to verify that eating less meat is better for our health, better for our wealth, better to fight world poverty and better for the environment even staunch meat eaters agree that it would be better to eat less even if they are too selfish to consider this a full time personal option. Boris Johnson the Mayor of London has promised to eat even more meat rather than less in response to the suggestion by the United Nations scientists, Sir Paul McCartney, The Vegetarian Society, health professionals, environmental and Green campaigners, the city of Ghent and organisers of The Bristol Vegan Fayre that we eat less meat and more fruit and vegetables in order to save the planet.

Bishop-Weston will be demonstrating recipes from his new book, The Complete Book of Vegan Cooking at The Bristol Vegan Fayre on the 30th and 31st May on Bristol’s waterfront and says “The aim of The Bristol Vegan Festival is to prove how easy, enjoyable, healthy and fun it is to be kinder to people and the planet. I wonder if Boris could even tell the difference between a meat sausage and some of the better brands of vegetarian sausage, it is prejudice for the sake of ignorance”

Boris Johnson wrote in the Telegraph “if they seriously believe that I am going to give up eating meat - in the hope of reducing the temperature of the planet - then they must be totally barmy. I am not going to have one meat-free day per week. No, I am not going to become a gradual vegetarian.”

In fact he has found the whole suggestion of meat reduction to save the planet so irritating that he has actually suggested we eat MORE meat this summer in response. He suggests vast barbeques every weekend that include carnivorous festivals of chops and sausages and burgers and chitterlings and chine and offal, - “the fat will run down our chins, and the dripping will blaze on the charcoal, and the smoky vapours will rise to the heavens” predicted Boris

“I can think of no logical explanation for this kind of thinking in a politician” said Bishop-Weston. It dismisses the facts, the UN report Livestock’s Long Shadow, the rate at which Brazil’s rain forest is being destroyed after being forced to grow GM soya to feed the world’s cattle, the Oxford EPIC research proving that those who eat less meat, vegetarians and vegans are far healthier than the national average and the world’s poor, starving, predominantly because the modern world values beef more than human life.”

The Complete Book of Vegan Cooking (and living) is published by Lorenz in June £16.99 IBSN 10-0-7548-1843-8

The Bristol Vegan Fayre is 11am – 10.30pm/8.30pm Sat /Sun 30th/31st May

HOPE not hate - Truth about the BNP

nazi BNP supporter Mick Holmes
HOPE not hate

I've been to museums that show the history and facts about the Holocaust, I've met people who survived the camps and met many more people whose relatives and friends did not survive.

People who deny the holocaust should be made to see the evidence for themselves, people who deny the holcaust and promote racsim should never be voted for.

Vegetarian - 1 day at a Time

Tristram Stuart reports on a small town in Belgium that has gone meat-free one day a week | Environment | The Guardian

At last someone taking the UN, Paul McCartney and George Monbiot seriously and doing something about it. The Sausage loving politicians of Ghent have fearlessly suceeded where Camden council tried but failed. They made the whole town go vegetarian once a week.

A good start.Only another 313 days to go!!!

Sick Vegans Kill People and Destroy the Planet

Vegan Guardian article by George Monbiot who says vegans thwart veganism George Monbiot: Credit crunch? The real crisis is global hunger. And if you care, eat less meat - The Guardian

Meat eater, George Monbiot eloquently highlights why the most dynamic gesture we can make to help stop people starving to death, stop the irresponsible destruction of our planet and save the teetering world economy is to eat more vegan food.

He also draws attention to the fact that many vegans are their own worst enemy. By failing to take care of their health and bodies vegans, allowing their skin to turn to a "fascinating pearl grey" are providing excuses to even our potentially staunchest allies.

The trouble is there are some vegans out there who revel in veganism's fringe niche-ness spending their lives discouraging people rather than encouraging people to adopt our more environmentally friendly, ethical and potentially healthier lifestyle.

It's now more important than ever that for the future of mankind that all the healthy vegans who easily avoid deficiencies of essential fats and Vitamin B12 and the associated emotional problems join together to double their efforts to prove how enjoyable and easily attainable vegan diet really is with just a few basic shopping tricks.

Now Vegetarian Kids can eat crap food too!

vegetarian vegan haribo jelly sweets gelatine free
The Vegetarian Society - Haribo Press Release 2009

Yipee, at last, finally vegetarian sweets! - well actually vegetarians/vegans have had sweets for years and companies such as Just Wholefoods have madeVegeBears and even won awards for their efforts.

The trouble is they are usually only sold in health food stores as Haribo have a strangle-hold on everywhere else.

So! great news that Haribo have veganised their sweets and we can now buy vegetarian confectionery EVERYWHERE.

But do we really want vegetarian kids to eat more sweets? It was a great get out clause for parents - "oh no, sorry darling you can't eat that crap because it's got little piggies testicles, toes and ears in it and probably a little bit of it's anus too"

Now they've taken out the nasty stuff what do we do? We can't LIE, it's not PC to say "No darling, my little vegan pumpkin, you can't eat that crap because you'll end up fat and ugly like the poor kids on the bus", we could I guess threaten them with the dentist but we've spent years nuturing a good relationship with the dentist and avoiding passing on hereditry irrational fear. What the **** do we do? Not sure "have a satsuma instead" is going to cut it. Do we be economical with the truth and keep the news from them? It's only going to take one naive well meaning mum to say "don't worry little odd child, they've changed the recipe you don't have to be an alien any more you can be like all the other spotty, grossly overweight and snotty children"

Then we'd be caught out and our children would never believe a word we said, ever again - oooh - like normal kids then.

It's taken Neville Finlay 3 years to get these Halal sweets to mass market I guess we should be greatful . Personally I wish he'd stuck to vegan Caviar!
