Who'd have thought I would see this vile food on my own doorstep?
It's very disappointing and proves that publicly funded companies like the BBC promoting a food so cruel it's production is banned in the UK and most other European countries does have an effect.
The Cumbrae Bistro isn't the only place where you can buy this cruel food. Harvey Nichols has decided that although they will stop selling it in their food halls they will continue to serve it in their restaurants.
I have since heard of a UK company funding a so called Foie gras factory in China, a country where humans have few rights and animals have none. After campaigning by animal welfare organisations such as Compassion in World Farming the company concerned Creek Project Investments Plc have stated that they've announced 'a suspension of the present foie gras operations, until the completion of a full review.'

Whether that means they will pull out completely remains to be seen, because companies with low morals have done that before. Here's hoping this company will not.
Update - Shortly after this was printed, my partner was threatened by two men on the street. The loudest objected to me publicising the Cumbrae Bistro selling Foie Gras. Why? Because clearly he knew what a cruel food it was, but didn't care. Sometimes standing up to save animals can lead to aggressive reactions. Sadly, there are some people who don't want the cruelty to end because they make too much money out of it.
