Oxfordshire council sparks anger over decision to serve only vegan food at events

A debate surrounding veganism has erupted in the Oxfordshire county council after a rule was passed banning meat and dairy products from being served at official events.

On Tuesday 14 December, counsellor Ian Middleton proposed the motion prompting a 90-minute debate among the ruling Liberal Democrat, Labour and Green Party alliance.

The motion, which was agreed, read as follows: “This council recognises that global meat and dairy production is a significant contributor to greenhouse gas emissions and deforestation and that reducing consumption of these foods is a key part of tackling climate change.

“The government’s independent Climate Change Committee, advises that meat consumption should be reduced by a fifth, and that public bodies should promote plant-based foods. That and the avoidance of food waste are powerful ways to cut carbon emissions.

I wonder if all those councilors have gone vegan themselves, cut out all meat in their own lives?

However, not all councillors are in agreement with the motion.

David Bartholomew, an opposition Conservative councillor, told The Times: “The Conservative opposition believes that veganism is a choice that should be respected.

“But it is not something that should be rammed down the throats of vegetarians and meat eaters. A carrot not a stick approach should be employed.”

I wonder if the climate cultists bothered to ask their constituents, or simply said “the peons will do as we say”? Because the Warmists do so like the stick approach. It’s just about all they know. Middleton goes on

“Meals are provided to council six times a year. I felt that we should be embracing the opportunity to set an example and send the message out. I’d have thought that anyone with a genuine concern about the future of the ecosphere would see that as a pretty modest sacrifice for the sake of future generations.

“I’m not suggesting that all councillors should become vegan but that on those occasions food provided by the council should be plant-based. Councillors who don’t want to eat it don’t have to eat in the council chamber.”

The Warmist way or no way.

    I don’t think the people are going to get to eat anything
    I think it is only for the council

    Seems like more silly virtue signaling. Events that normally don’t serve food will now also not serve meat. Expecting full compliance.

    But if controlling greenhouse gasses is the goal, then the counsel members themselves should be leading the way by not eating meat or animal byproducts in their homes too. And they can trade recipes for all the plant-based stuff they can make with locally grown seasonings (no pepper: It is a remnant of slave trade as well as having a huge carbon footprint as is everything brought from Asia).

    Sorry but you must not have gotten the most recent message from SOROS High Command
    Trade with Asia will continue in support of Globalism and the New Wirld Order
    So continue shopping at Walmart
