BBC bias in question (which way do they lean?)

Awol

Do you think because they make more profit on the vegan?
It did occur to me that it would be pointless encouraging people to buy something new if it meant they would no longer be buying something else, so I think it's safe to assume they are making considerably more money from Veganism. The nationwide advertising campaigns must be costing millions in themselves.

I haven't noticed any Veganism in Lidl.
But then a German vegetarian is someone who actually eats vegetables with their meat.
 
It's the latest religion to be thrust at idiots by those with a vested interest. In the past week I've had two unsolicited notifications from supermarkets exhorting me to try vegan food. I think it's going to dominate the media in the same way as climate change currently is, with celebrities out-woking each other in their puerile attempts to stay relevant to the masses.
It's been clear since my childhood that theist religions are dying in 1st and 2nd world nations as knowledge and opportunity replace faith and hope. The psychology of humans has been shown to require a structured belief system to which they can cling. Things like socialism, veganism and climate change, with their apparently immutable truths, offer this crutch to the weak-minded. They may be correct, but the more intelligent will make up their own minds, with three possible outcomes:

1. After consideration they will dismiss them as unfounded nonsense.
2. After consideration they will come to the conclusion that there is something to them.
3. They will understand the potential for leverage of the weak and become members of the new clergy.

I have been number 2 since 1967 as far as the human population explsian is concerned.
No I am not going to rewrite that.

You say that, but it is growing here too. A few weeks ago in a restaurant downtown, I heard a patron ask the waitress, "Ist das vegan oder kann Man das essen?" (Is that vegan or can one eat it?).

On the other hand I know a guy who has steak every single day for his dinner, whether at home or elsewhere. The accompaniments change, but steak it is.

Climate change is something the BBC want to believe is true and backed by sufficient evidence, to deflect criticism it can push this stuff unchallenged....
You can use your skilz to shred the BBC meteorologists then, shouldn't be a problem for a man of your abilities.
