9-12-09 The property status of animals

This week on the show I talk about why animals shouldn’t be treated or viewed as property. I answer this question from a moral/ theoretical angle and also from a practical angle.

I also read out a recipe for vegan shortbread

125g white plain flour
50g caster sugar
25g rice flour / semolina
100g vegan margarine

Line a baking tin with greased paper. Sieve the flour. Add the rice flour and sugar. Knead in the margarine. When the mixture binds, pack it into the tin. Prick the top with a fork and crimp the edges with your thumb.

Bake at the bottom of the oven at 170 °C until firm and lightly browned (About 1 hour.)

Move onto a wire cooling tray and drench the top with caster sugar.
