Matthew Steeples supports William Sitwell and suggests his employer Waitrose develop a better moral compass before attacking him

 

Aristocrats have a habit of saying stupid things. That’s a fact but equally that millennials now take offence at a bit of banter is something quite more ludicrous.

 

Outrage has ensued this week after a gentleman named William Sitwell – a critic on MasterChef UK and editor of Waitrose Magazine – “dared” to make fun of veganism.

 

“Disgraceful” some might declare but nonetheless that Sitwell was criticised for responding to a woman suggesting an article on “plant-based meals” with the following is ridiculous:

 

“How about a series on killing vegans, one by one. Ways to trap them? How to interrogate them properly? Expose their hypocrisy? Force-feed them meat? Make them eat steak and drink red wine?”

 

In response, Waitrose issued a statement that read:

 

“Even though this was a private email William’s gone too far and his words are extremely inappropriate, insensitive and absolutely do not represent our views.”

 

Well, Waitrose – the company that won’t sell poppies because “they don’t condone war” – I’d suggest you get your own house in order before condemning a man who’d simply made a joke.

 

How about getting this trending on Twitter? #Snowflakes

  1. Its a sad world that we live in where we have to tip toe with our view points in order not to offend people who deem its their right to tell us we can’t eat meat as for Waitrose get a grip and support your country!!!!

  2. If soldiers had not died for Britain the matter would be academic. Ladies would be frauleins and the men replaced by good Aryan stock as per Hitlers Black Book. Where does Waitrose come in to this aside from disputing UK soldeirs died for freedom and the offensive belief that wars are unnecessary. Tell that to Grandad and see what he says, and also mention the Nazi driven Holocaust as an evil to be stopped.

  3. The Sitwells are talented and amusing family.
    I love Osbert Sitwell’s ” A gentleman is only ever deliberately rude”
