Dominic West Slams Factory Farming In Article That Showcases All That Is Wrong With Journalism

by | 20th, June 2011

ALL you needed to know about the state of newspapers, the Sunday Telegraph, reporting on the environment.  Ahem:

Wire star Dominic West fears Britain will take up ‘shameful’ US-style factory farming Dominic West, the television and Hollywood actor, has warned Britain is moving towards a ‘shameful’ system of factory farming that will destroy the countryside and create a new breed of superbugs.

The Eton-educated actor, who stars in hit television series the Wire and films including 300 and Centurion, said US-style ‘mega farms’ that house thousands of pigs are springing up around the country.

Yep. That is West who shilled for Carte Noire, a coffee brand owned by Kraft.

Kraft has been seen to oppose the fair trade movement, telling Oxfam in a report on the coffee industry that the ‘market will find its own solution because countries and producers will be driven out of the market. Our role is on the demand side – our role as Kraft is to increase consumption’.

Yep, I’ve just been debating an actor’s views on farming… Try to forgive me.
