To celebrate his 53rd birthday, quondam Smiths warbler Morrissey has taken to his True To You site to launch an excoriating assault on the “pitiless atrocity of foie gras”.
Congratulations to Prince Charles for banning foie gras from all his functions.
However, unsurprisingly, this most savage and cruel commodity continues to be the favorite “dish” of smiling mother-to-be Kate Muddleton (from whom, in fact, we expect no less.)
Foie gras production is illegal in the UK, yet the ever-so-correct Fortnum and Mason have found suppliers in France who will keep their shelves stocked – possibly with the hope that smiling Kate will wobble in and place an order for her unborn child.
Since Fortnum and Mason are now the only department store in London who are associated with the pitiless atrocity of foie gras, would you please write to them/contact them and exert pressure on them to stop selling such asavage beyond belief “product”.

Interesting to see HRH Prince Charles – yes, he who craves to “appear on the front of the Daily Mail / Dressed in your Mother’s bridal veil?” – get a quiet compliment – not a courtesy extended to the recently deceased Margaret Thatcher.
