Tag Archives: Turkeys at Christmas

“If slaughterhouses had glass walls, everyone would be a vegetarian.”


I caught a supermarket ad (Lidl ? ) for nut roast on the box last night showing the usual shiny idealised family raising  a turkey throughout the year for the ‘festive’ season then becoming so attached to the bird it was head of the table rather than centre.  A clever bit of  ‘feel good’ brand marketing but like most ads so very sadly  miles away from reality and more about fantasy.  If they had shown the industrial processed slaughter  they would sell far more nut roasts but less of everything else.

The quote is from Paul McCartney, the photo was taken at the South of England Agricultural show this summer.
