Excellent work. Your are an inspiration. Lets make the UK a vegan mecca
I love this woman.
She is right, you are healthier without animal products check the Viva Mayr Diet
Dear Kerry McCarthy, I don't know if you will ever read this, but I just wanted to say that you are mine and so very many others Hero. Everyone keeps talking about this amazing MP called Kerry McCarthy. Before you and and Jeremy Corbyn, I like so many other young people didn't care about voting. But because of you this has all changed. You have given us hope again. What you stand for is truly noble and many others out there believe so too. Finally humans and animals alike can have hope for our future because we have such enlightened leadership. You are bringing back to politics what has been missing for so long... compassion, empathy and reasoning based on modern science. I believe that you will play a pivotal role in the evolution of our country to a brighter, lighter and kinder UK. This will ultimately send out a powerful message to the world as you set a high and noble ideal for all to follow. You rock Kerry and the world needs more people like you. Be bold and stand strong in the face of others mis-understanding and ignorance and know that you have millions of people all over the UK standing behind you. Thank you

I'm Spanish and I'm vegan. I think we have to join in the objective of spread vegan diet, because it's not a national issue but a world issue. So try to open your mind and your hearts to the world because we are not nationalists. In Spain vegan diet movement is growing. So come on open your consciousness, gracias.

Even though I aint Vegan myself I applaud her stance on it

Now we are out of eu, the subsidies for flesh will go and when people have to pay the full price for flesh, meat consumption will plummet. Some good has come from brexit!

We need more vegans in parliament. Thumbs up. Save animals, the planet, the starving and our own health!

Well Kerry could have done with some of you phoning in on the LBC debate on the night of the 24th September! Only one very young vegetarian called in to support her idea that meat eaters should be targeted as smokers have been! I am Paleo and I care very much about animal welfare, only eating organically produced meat, in fact everything I eat is organically produced, some by me myself. I do not think that the Government should be telling us to be vegetarian or vegan, especially with the track record all parties in power have had so far with dietary guidance! I would urge some of you to find a video or two of Dr Terry Wahls, who after a lot of research to try to help her devastating condition, went from being a vegetarian to eating meat on a paleo based diet, including offal at least twice a week. She has gone from a reclining wheelchair, facing being bedridden with her MS to now cycling to work and thousands follow her diet with more and more being able to walk again. She supports vegetarians on her protocol but does advise eating meat and for very good reasons.
Choose Vegan
well I would advise you to watch Forks Over Knives as was mentioned already in this video in parliament by Kerry. Then I would HIGHLY urge you to watch w more videos, these are a must. Gary Yourofsky - The Most Important Speech You Will Ever Hear, and Earthlings. I've been vegan 3 months and have never felt better before!

clinton is now paleo isn't he?
