On a different matter (and forgive me for this diversion) but if humans are killing off the elephants for their ivory, skin etc (something i find horrific - yes i eat meat so you might think me a hypocrite) and their numbers are worryingly low would it not make more sense to stop killing them for a few years so the numbers increase before there are none left and they have nothing to trade?

Personally i'd rather hunt the humans killing the elephants.

Never say never, cause it's never 'never'

Paul has now got involved in the debate:

He has made the (good) decision to support a no vote.

The comments under the article are hilarious. A much better read than the article itself.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

From the Meat Free Mondays Facebook page:

Today we launch the ?#?MFMclimatepledge? with Paul McCartney, Mary McCartney,Stella McCartney and Rt Hon Greg Barker MP.The pledge calls upon the UN to tackle climate change in a meaningful way.

Find out more and pledge your support HERE

Watch Paul McCartney talking about the campaign HERE

The launch took place this morning at tibits UK on Heddon Street, London

 

And at the website:

On Tuesday 23rd September global leaders – from government, finance, business, and civil society – will meet at the UN headquarters in New York to discuss climate change. It will be the first time the UN has tackled the subject since Copenhagen in 2009. We want the leaders to commit NOW to agreeing an ambitious climate treaty at the COP 21 Conference in Paris next year.

Let’s show them our commitment to reducing global emissions by making one small and easy change – skipping meat for one day a week. Show your support below by pledging to go meat free on Mondays and together let’s urge world leaders to act!

He's letting himself go grey :O - it seems so weird after all this time of him having light brown (sometimes badly dyed) hair.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8What is a politician going to do with all the pledges? Tell everyone that they cant have a hamburger on a Monday? Tax Chicken Pasties by an extra 10% so they're more expensive? Enforce stores to not sell meat on that day? Send someone round each house to ensure no salami slice is chomped on?

Maybe he's long overdue for a touch-up.
