Not for us to argue
I HAD a little titter after reading Valerie Fry's letter (Tuesday) inviting us all to become vegans.
Sadly will not be taking up Mss Fry's offer for a number of reasons. Every day I look in the mirror and gleaming back at me (well they used to gleam ) are a nice pair of Mark 1 omnivorous nashers. Yes my teeth are telling me I'm designed to eat both plant and meat, as does the rest of my body. We are made for it.
Valerie claims the 'organic' tags etc are made to assuage our guilt. I don't care what the intent is, as long as the animals benefit with a better quality of life. You see I love animals, both domestic and wild, and have had involvement in marine conservation among other things. I abhor cruelty to animals and would demand that all animals, domesticated and wild, receive the highest respect and care. However that does not mean I will refrain from eating them. I think it is true we should be eating less meat, but to cut it out completely would be against the will of nature itself, in my opinion.
There are many predators in the animal kingdom, we are but one.

Eating meat is entirely moral; how it is kept is another matter and while we have seen some improvements I feel much, much more needs to be done. If that means buying a chicken for £10, so be it. Then we need to have it on special occasions and the same can be said of all other livestock and fish.
I find Ms Fry's stance extreme, but good luck to her. However I intend to tuck into a nice juicy steak this weekend, and I can safely say will feel nothing but pleasure at the fantastic flavours I will be enjoying.
We are omnivores, we were built to eat plant and meat – this is what nature intended for us and it is not for me to argue with Mother Nature.
