Yay! I go to uni in gloucestershire. I wasn't keen on the article though... these bits inparticular..
"We did not agree with it but felt bullied into it."
And why are the words force feeding in these things "" (i can't remember the name lol, brain dead today), it is force feeding no matter how you look at it.
"Due to the "force feeding" procedure, and the possible health consequences of an enlarged liver, animal rights and welfare organisations and activists regard foie gras production methods as cruel to animals. "
It's not a fact of regarding it as cruel.. it IS cruel.
