I linked to this in the ‘nibbles’ column, but this pic from The Sun is so good, I thought I’d paste it here. Basically, the story is; a bunch of attention seeking treehuggers are out to make fish ‘n’ chips a thing of the past. Yeah right… over my dead guts. Or as one chippie owner
near Swansea says, "Have they not got anything
batter to do?"
"Vegetarian group People for the Ethical
Treatment of Animals (PETA) has traditionally campaigned against people
wearing fur coats or the killing of farmyard animals.
Now it wants fish suppers taken off the menu because it says the
tasty underwater creatures are "intelligent" and feel pain when caught.
PETA’s Dawn Carr said: "We are not pulling any punches on this one. We don’t think people should eat fish at all – and if that means they do not eat fish and chips then so be it." from The Sun
According to The Daily Telegraph, "The call is part of (PETA’s) "fish empathy" project, which claims that fish are no more deserving of being eaten than a dog or cat."
Precisely. That’s Asia off the hook then. As for The Sun’s verdict, "DON’T eat fish and chips because it’s cruel to the fish. That’s the crackpot idea of a bunch of vegetarians. We know what Sun readers will do with their advice. Take it with a pinch of salt… And lashings of vinegar."
