Sir Roger Moore’s attempts to ban foie gras are wrong
I personally don’t have a great liking for foie gras. The texture and richness of it is often overwhelming and for me, there are many other “ultimate luxuries” I’d choose first. The campaigns of Sir Roger Moore and others, however, to ban this delicacy are not something I support and are frankly just ridiculous.
In a recent interview with The Telegraph, Moore stated:
“This shameful product of goose torture… should most definitely not be sold in any respectable British institution – let alone a shop such as Fortnum & Mason which so blatantly trades on English heritage”.
Freedom of choice is a bastion of any civilised society and it is time that busybodies such as Moore fell silent. I won’t be eating foie gras in 2014, but I fully support those who choose to do so.
