Strip store of royal warrants, urges Brighton MP

A foie gras terrine

A foie gras terrine

First published in News

An MP has urged the Queen to strip a store of its royal warrants, for selling foie gras.

Caroline Lucas, who represents Brighton Pavilion, accused London-based Fortnum & Mason of touting the prestigious awards while “improperly” promoting the luxury paté to its customers.

In a letter to the Lord Chamberlain, who oversees the warrants, Dr Lucas points to an investigation by the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals earlier this year that allegedly uncovered cruelty to geese at one of the store’s French suppliers.

The letter said: “I am appalled that the mistreatment of geese and the sale of foie gras should be associated with the essence of Englishness.”

The pate is made of the liver of a duck or goose that has been specially fattened.

Foie gras force-feeding is outlawed in the UK, but it is still available from fine food specialists and in restaurants.

Dr Lucas added: “I know that my constituents feel strongly about such disregard for animal welfare and on their behalf I request that Fortnum & Mason’s warrants not be renewed until the company ends the sale of foie gras.”

And no turkey either I guess, because they will have outlawed butchers in the town by then too.

@BornInBrighton1968

What are you wittering on about?

We've been stunning animals for a couple of decades only - and that started to protect factory works not to ease the animal's suffering.

Islamic slaughter rituals are far nicer than our early factory farming attempts. Whether or not stunning is allowed is still debated by Muslims.

That the death should be clean and fast and that the knife should be sharp was codified in Muslim culture over 1000 years ago.

I agree that the situation needs to be improved, but suggesting that we should be driving divisions between huge segments of the population over an issue that will resolve itself over the next decade (in the first world, anyway) is tantamount to insanity.

So much for 'Brussels' Lucas claim that the Green party is (quote) "passionate about animal rights" (unquote) BornInBrighton1968

It is vile what is done to these poor birds!! How they suffer, is so terrible. Wish more people cared, instead of just thinking of themselfs. I pray this will be banned very soon. And keep on signing petitions, for this to stop!! So many animals abused, and murdered, the best thing I did, was become a vegan!! At least Caroline cares!!
