    Default UN urges global veganism

    In the Guardian today:

    I wish the government would take this seriously and stop propping up the meat & dairy industry with our money.

    Small step in the right direction, hopefully with time people will sit up and pay attention.

    That's really interesting! Unfortunately, it seems the world is plagued by apathetic westerners who only care for right now, right here. I can't wait for the day when dogs rule the world

    Was this from a recent lead story in that well known north east London newspaper, the Barking and Dagenham Recorder?

    "Barking" "dogs" "lead" [as in 'leash']

    It was a joke which may have been only understood by me!

    I'm afraid the MacDonald guzzling thickos I've seen and spoken to today don't give me much hope for worldwide veganism
    Silent but deadly :p

    Most people want their meat and they want it now most people dont really seem to care about whats its doing to the enviroment, if i mention this article to my familiy all I would hear about would be how bad all the rice producers are for the enviroment blah blah blah which really doesnt make sense to me because meat production produces more........ but according to them fish dont feel pain and organic animals are super super happy. People wont hear what they dont want too
