Maybe a TW.
That picture is very distressing. Poor thing. I would judge the hell out of anyone who chose to eat it.

I thought I read somewhere that the Government were banning it, something to do with new rules after Brexit??

@BronwenFrideswide - I thought that too

It was in the news last week that the government were planning on banning it.

I don’t eat it personally, but I always wonder why just foie gras, if you want to ban products made at the expense of cruelty towards animals?
It’s always seemed to me to be a bit of easy “virtue signalling” with a foreign food not many people eat, without tackling other foods.
The life of a battery chicken, or of a veal separated from it’s mother because of the dairy industry is not nice either....

Are you vegan?

Because if not, do you know the dairy and meat you consume are also coming from cruel practices?

Babies ripped away from their mothers, artificially inseminated (forcefully) cows, when slaughter happens the animal often doesn't die straight away. Terrible distressing conditions.

There is nothing ethical about any industry that exploits animals and there's no point working yourself up about foie gras but not everything else...

Filthy industry and although I follow a vegan diet I'm not sure that's necessary in order to see how wrong this method of feeding is.
