‘Vegetarian Food’

Pure marketing bullshit. It doesn’t exist. Vegetarian recipes and vegetarian restaurants, certainly. Even vegetarian religions and cultures. But ‘vegetarian food’ is vegetables. All human beings eat them; we’ll die if we don’t. In Britain tofu (soya bean curd) is marketed and (highly) priced as a ‘new-age’ vegetarian food. Clearly the Chinese peasantry never realised what a gold mine they were sitting on.


‘Travellers’

A term commonly used in Britain to describe people who live in caravans (mobile homes), either as squatters or on land that they own or rent but without planning permission. Clearly these people are not travellers at all; they are settlers. Were they living 19th century North America they’d be mythologised as the forerunners of a new civilisation and have heroic films and TV shows made about them for the next 300 years. Maybe they should start killing off some of the natives they encounter.
