No tea, we’re vegan

Written by 

UK vegans are demanding a law change to ban discrimination against plant-based eaters in workplaces.

They want to be exempt from work tea rounds because it’s discriminatory to make them handle milk, a senior UK lawyer has claimed.

Alex Monaco, from law firm Monaco Solicitors, said: “If you were Jewish or Muslim and told to get a round of bacon sandwiches, no one would bat an eyelid if you refused.

“But if you were vegan and refused to buy a pint of milk to make tea because you believed the dairy industry was torturing cows, then you would be laughed out of the kitchen.”
