On hearing the revelation I reacted in the usual ways. I searched for the inevitable petition, signed it and shared it. I tweeted to the self-validating echo chamber that is my twitter following. Naturally, I attacked the trolls who were insensitively (if slightly amusingly) telling distraught vegetarians "they shouldn't be eating £5 notes anyway".

The preacher in the town square exists in all areas of life. You can find them in religion, in atheism, in politics, sport or anywhere else where passions run high. Often you'll find them in animal rights circles. Many a meat-eater has told me of a time they were verbally attacked or belittled by a vegetarian or vegan.

The notion that we may one day become a power source for robots who keep us running by hooking us up to a system that delivers all the sensory requirements a person needs may seem far-fetched, but it's dystopia in its finest form. Not only does it touch on computer control, elements of freedom and individuality, it questions the cost of living in the way we do.

Recent political developments have exacerbated this air of futility as we find ourselves at a tipping point in regards to the environment and climate action. However these set-backs mean that unity is more important than ever, and doing our individual part to contribute to the whole is vital.

Don't be put off by the very first ingredient, as therein lies all the magic. The humble chickpea is the star ingredient taking this fudge to the next level and you don't even know it's in there. I promise. It becomes blended with coconut oil and chocolate to form a melt in your mouth healthier fudge.

These are best kept outside of the fridge once they've set as the cacao butter begins to rise to the surface of the chocolate resulting in a white appearance. If you plan on storing them for longer I'd place them in a sealed container, although they never last that long!

There Needs To Be A Label Between Meat-eater And Vegetarian

As a society we don't yet seem to recognise the middle ground between being a 'meat-eater' and vegetarian. If you try explaining that you simply eat a 'low meat diet' you end up sounding like a hypocritical vegetarian.

Demand For Dairy Is Driving The Badger Cull

Elena Orde | Posted 07.10.2016 | UK

The badger cull has clearly been a political tool to keep traditionally conservative-voting farmers and farming communities onside. The government have been keen to show that they are doing something to help, that they are taking a strong stance. In reality this is manifesting in violence and cruelty rather than addressing the root cause - modern farming methods.
