    Default Vivienne Westwood: People who can’t afford organic food should ‘eat less’



    Dame Vivienne Westwood has once again caused a stir after suggesting poorer people should “eat less” so they can afford to buy organic food.
    The outspoken designer made her remarks as she delivered a petition to Downing Street outlining concerns about genetically modified (GM) food in the UK.

    Speaking outside of Number 10 on Wednesday, Ms Westwood advised the public to follow what she described as Russell Brand’s ‘rule of thumb’ when it comes to food: “If the Government said it’s good, then you know it’s not.”
    But when BBC Radio 5 Live’s Dino Sofos pointed out that not everyone can afford to eat organic, non GM food, Westwood simply responded with: “Eat less.”

    Her comment prompted Mr Sofos to advise that thousands in the UK are already going to food banks and can barely afford to buy enough food to feed themselves, meaning “eat less isn’t really an option.”

    But Westwood refused to back down. “You’ve got all these processed foods, which is the main reason people are getting fat,” she continued. “They’re not actually good for you – they don’t give you strength, they give you weight.
    “I eat vegetables and fruit. I don’t eat meat. I believe meat is bad for me – I don’t eat it. It’s also bad for the animals. But if there was a movement to produce more organic foodand less of the horrible food, then organic food would obviously be a good value price, wouldn’t it?”

    I bet her dentist (if she does anything so plebian as visiting a dental health professional) must use organic fillings and compounds for cleaning. Which clearly don't work.

    This bitch-I really don't know if she's just completely out of touch or stupid and unable to keep her mouth shut.

    I think we should ask Kristen Stewart if she has Alzheimer's.
