"Treat meat eaters like smokers"

"Meat should be treated like tobacco with a public campaign to stop people eating it, Jeremy Corbyn's new vegan shadow farming minister has suggested."
Kerry McCarthy, MP for Bristol East, has irked the British farming industry with her veganism and vice presidency of the anti-hunting League Against Cruel Sports.
In an interview with Viva!life, a magazine for vegans, she admitted she was a "militant" when it came to clamping down on meat consumption.
She said: "I really believe that meat should be treated in exactly the same way as tobacco, with public campaigns to stop people eating it.
She said: "Too much milk is being produced and if you live by the market you have to risk dying by the market."
Tim Bonner, of the Countryside Alliance, said: "Kerry McCarthy’s views on meat eating and livestock farming are completely out of step with the vast majority of people.
"Her ideas are verging on the cranky. This appointment is only going to make it more difficult for Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party to reconnect with rural Britain."

I thought England was the land of the joint of beef with the tankard of ale -- wha' happened?

I give it 20 years when you'll be forced to eat your cheeseburgers outside in the cold.

Cut out the baby steps, and let's do this thing.

1) Create a set of personal characteristics and choices that everyone should have and agree on.

2) Round up and execute everyone who does not fit the model.

3) Enjoy utopia

Addendum: Set aside an island where everything is legal. Call it La Isla Las Vegas. Tax tourists to the island heavily during their visits. That should fund all the central world government's expenses.

See, this civilization stuff is easy.

Frankly, a vegans arguments are downright stupid and just another glaring example of the radical Marxist left trying to impugn itself into the lives of everyone else. Hey SJW's step the fuck off, go live your lives the way you want and stop shoving your down our throats.

I think that in 20 years England will experience what is called... backlash.

Also, really, anyone think that Muslims are going to put up with that crap?
