Kudos to Paul for writing to the British Government asking them to ban the sickening sport of fox hunting. I wish he would just restrict himself to issues like this. I feel circumspect about Paul’s animal rights and environmental “activism”. His outspoken views on vegetarianism often go unchallenged and he is selective in who he targets in areas where he can remain virtuous. He keeps pretty quiet over the issue of halal slaughter and the fact that thousands of live animals are exported to the Middle East every year under horrendous conditions for weeks on end. Half of them die before reaching their destination – of heatstroke, stress, overcrowding, seasickness and broken limbs. All in the name of religion I guess, and too controversial to broker.

He is hypocritical too, in his views on tackling climate change. Paul, and all rock stars of his era, leave a massive carbon footprint behind them every time they tour. The logistics of transporting their sound equipment, their musical instruments, their catering requirements, and not lastly, themselves, is mind boggling. Do what I say, not do what I do. It’s up to all of us to reduce our impact on the environment and Paul could lead the way.

I’m pleased that Ringo has been recognised for his humanitarian work, which he goes about quietly and without fuss. I don’t doubt for one moment Paul’s love of animals but I can’t help feel that all his various causes are a way of keeping him in the public eye. If he really feels so strongly about the state of the world he could take a leaf out of the late, great Audrey Hepburn’s book and give up his career and devote himself entirely to humanitarian issues. I think he would get greater respect.

Are you proposing that no major bands should ever tour?

Something seems so wrong about what just happened…

The ad I got on YouTube before Paul’s album Pipes Of Peace started playing was for a Hello Fresh hamburger (not a meatless one). paul-mccartney

Paul asked the head of Starbucks to stop charging extra for plant-based milk.

I’m listening to this podcast https://iamtheeggpod.com/2022/…..ebe-lorde/

and they suggested that Paul should play Pipes Of Peace at Glastonbury. That would be amazing.

My hot take is that after the Beatles split they went down the paths of spiritualism, solipsism, alcoholism, and Paul McCartney
