Today’s hot topic: Beef’s rare on campus


STUDENTS at the London School of Economics have voted by 243 to 170 to ban beef from its menus. True, the number at the meeting represented only 3.75 per cent of the university’s students, and those who voted for the ban just 2.2 per cent, but they are hoping this will be a striking enough number to persuade the authorities to implement the ban. 

If they are successful they will be following Goldsmiths, University of London, which has removed beef from its menus as part of its efforts to become carbon neutral by 2025, and Cambridge University, which has stopped serving beef and lamb, claiming this has cut carbon emissions from its catering service by 10.5 per cent. 

Are these laudable actions to save the planet, or the pointless imposition of minority views on the majority? Discuss!
