Is British MP Jeremy Corbyn Going Vegan?


'Recently, while speaking to workers at cruelty-free brand Lush cosmetics, British Prime Minister Jeremy Corbyn was asked if he was going to make “the next logical step to veganism” because one of their employees remarked, “Britain’s first vegan Prime Minister would be something worth fighting for.” To which the labour leader replied: 

I eat more and more vegan food, and have more and more vegan friends. There are quite a lot of vegan MPs actually… 

“I think what has improved so much is vegetarian and vegan food has got so much better in recent years. I got fed up of going on a plane in the 80s and everyone would get their regulation rubber chicken and whatever with it. I would say 'where is my lunch?' and they would say 'yours is a special meal', like there is something badly wrong with you and they would bring this thing along. It was usually pretty grim when it got there.”

 “So I'm going through the process, all right? I won't go any further than that.”

At a speech in 2015, Mr Corbyn explained why he stopped eating meat almost 50 years ago. I became one [vegetarian] at 20 when I was working in a pig farm. I got attached to the pigs.”

We, of course, encourage anyone interested in veganism to start slowly, and hope that Mr. Corbyn soon announces that he’s gone fully vegan.
