From NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT
By Paul Homewood
Oh dear, how sad, never mind!
Extinction Rebellion co-founder Roger Hallam has taken to Twitter to share his frustration in an 11-point thread after he was served carrots and a handful of potatoes for dinner as the ‘vegan option’ in hospital.
Mr Hallam posted a photo of an almost empty plate from his bed which had just a portion of carrots on it, writing 391 words on the environmental benefits of going vegan – but did admit he had already eaten the ‘six’ potatoes that were served on the side.
The controversial environmentalist, 56, who also helped form eco mobs Insulate Britain and Just Stop Oil, has been in hospital after ‘crushing’ his leg during an accident while riding his bike.
He was last Friday pictured with an external fixator on his right leg which is used to hold broken bones in place with metal pins or screws.
It comes after a week of ‘slow-marching’ protests by Just Stop Oil across central London, with expected action on Saturday at 12pm in Westminster.
I’m not really sure what else a vegan can expect to eat in winter in our glorious fossil fuel free future. There will ne food imports, because they will need fossil fuels to ship them. So there will be little else than potatoes and carrots for months at a time, unless you want something out of a tin.
By the way Roger, I wonder how much fossil fuels were used to manufacture that fixator around your leg, ferry you to the hospital in an ambulance or supply all of the other things needed in the hospital to keep you alive?
