I don't believe he should have resigned over this, but the joke suggests he may not have been the best person for the job anyway. Given his former position it's an inappropriate comment and it appears he really does hold a fairly contemptuous view of vegans 🥦 There has been a rise in veganism/ vegetarianism and many others are choosing to eat less meat for health, ethical or environmental reasons. Someone who appreciates this would be better suited to the job. Although, as a result I imagine there will now be a vegan issue of the Waitrose Food magazine in the not too distant future 🥕

I agree, although knowing Waitrose and their policy to pander to customers, he had no choice but to resign. Perhaps had his job been with Lidl or Aldi, he’d merely get a slap on the wrist

I am a live and let live type of person, but...........I do get sick with minorities telling the rest of us how we should live. I happily eat meat but I do wish more was done to stop any suffering to the animals. If vegans want my respect and acknowledgement of their right to not eat meat, then please stop offending me by calling me a murderer and extend to me the same freedom to choose as I extend to you.

We have eaten meat for millions of years, early man was not a farmer but a hunter gatherer.

I agree. For a group of so-called animal lovers, you’d think they’d extend that same level of consideration to people...
