Corbyn considering veganism as ‘first vegan PM something worth fighting for’

During a recent visit to Lush, a shop which produces creams, soaps, shampoos, face masks and other cosmetics using only vegetarian or vegan recipes, he was asked by staff whether he would be making the switch because ‘Britain’s first vegan prime minister would be something worth fighting for’.

 

According to The Telegraph, Mr Corbyn replied: “It is a fair question. I eat more and more vegan food, and have more and more vegan friends, indeed there a quite a lot of vegan MPs actually – not a lot but there are some.

 

“I think what has improved so much is vegetarian and vegan food has got so much better in recent years.

 

 

“The food has got a lot better and vegan food – one of my close relatives has just become a vegan and I went to her house for dinner and it was absolutely brilliant.

 

“So I am going through the process alright? I will not go any further than that.”

 

A Labour spokesman later said he had actually meant he was ‘in the process of eating more vegan food’.

 

Mr Corbyn has previously opened up about his vegetarian journey, saying his job on a pig farm when he was 20 was the reason he stopped eating meat because he ‘got attached’ to the pigs.

 

He sparked a row in 2015 when he appointed Kerry McCarthy, a vegan and vocal animal welfare campaigner, as his first Shadow Defra Secretary after being elected leader.

 

Ms McCarthy later claimed her veganism ‘would not affect’ Labour’s farming policy.
