Editors Note: Stuart Agnew is a UKIP MEP for the East Of England and it’s Agriculture Spokesman.
A vegan will never knowingly eat food where natural animal life was treated badly in its production. Really?
Consider the humble bread roll. It all starts with the plough and the hundreds of following seagulls savagely tearing innocent worms from the soil. The seed is planted and the farmer finds himself obliged to poison the nice slugs that devour the young seedlings. Shortly afterwards he notices heavy grazing by sweet bunnies and sends his tractor driver to gas the burrows.
Meanwhile his organic farming neighbour is running a seven meter tractor rake through a crop of 9” wheat killing and injuring little fledging birds and adorable baby hares. Back on the conventional farm our man is indulging in mass genocide of aphids on an industrial scale and accidentally killing other bystander insects in the process. This is all done so that there is a crop to harvest.
Bad luck to the sleeping moths lovely ladybirds and charming earwigs that get traumatically swallowed by the combine harvester to meet the 1100 rpm spinning bars of the threshing drum, crushing them against the steel concave. If they survive that they are buried alive in the grain tank. A little later, near the farmers grain store, cuddly rats and mice die by the score after consuming rodenticides.
