Horror as ONE THIRD of Britons are now VEGAN

One in eight Britons are now vegetarian or vegan, according to shock new research out today. A further 21% claim to be flexitarian, where a largely vegetable-based diet is supplemented occasionally with meat, which means a third of UK consumers have deliberately reduced the amount of meat they eat or removed it from their diet entirely.

“It’s extremely encouraging to learn how many Britons are choosing to reduce their consumption of animal products” said a weedy and emaciated Nick Palmer, the vegan head of Compassion in World Farming UK.

It's nothing that lobbing insults at someone pitching you a magazine article couldn't solve, though.

Boy George is well known raw vegan since 2014 but he still eats sausage

FeudalClink - 01 Nov 2018 13:20:19 (#7 of 343)

As the joke goes, how do you know if someone is vegan

Just wait - they'll tell you pretty quickly

I would be vegetarian, but apparently its 87% more likely for this to be used in connection with Hitler.

Catspyjamas17 - 01 Nov 2018 13:23:17 (#10 of 343)

I'm sure it's all balanced out by the people who must have meat in every single meal.

Is "little porn" the same as dwarf porn is something much more 70's BBC DJ.?

So it IS Sawbridge - he was the only person who ever said that to me

And straight on ignore

I thought the only person who "consumed" it was, famously, Philip Larkin.

Pilot collapses on airplane.

Announcement to passangers: is their a doctor on board, our pilot has collapsed?

Passenger at the back: I'm a vegan.

Get that on the joke thread TF!

I could give up dairy I think apart from Yorkshire Pudding.

FleurDuMal - 01 Nov 2018 14:47:58 (#18 of 343)

I could live without meat, would be more reluctant to give up fish, but absolutely couldn’t manage without cheese.

Tenesmus - 01 Nov 2018 14:48:19 (#19 of 343)

The vegan on Newsnight yesterday with Giles Coren was doing fine right up until he used the word "murder" when talking about killing animals to eat.

TheVoiceOfReason - 01 Nov 2018 14:49:00 (#20 of 343)

Meat is murder, though, Tenesmus. Morrissey told us that back in the 80s.
