Educated?

Written by  The Hound

Your canine crusader is intrigued to learn that the upper-class twats who attend Oxford University in the UK have voted to ban beef and lamb from students’ menus.

Apparently, the university’s in-bred student’s union voted to stop campus food outlets selling beef and lamb due to the ‘effects on climate change’.

According to the motion – which passed 31 votes to 9 – “substituting beef and lamb produce is probably the single most impactful change the authorities can encourage in behaviour at the university to reduce our collective impact on climate change”.

One would have thought the supposedly well-educated Oxford student body would’ve looked at more effective ways of reducing their carbon footprint such as: biking around campus, no summer holidays on the continent and not producing children.

Who's paying?

Great idea

OPINION: Your old mate has long argued Landcorp’s farming business – Pamu – is a bigger dog than he is.
