Yesterday Independent TD Danny Healy-Rae hit out at Taoiseach Leo Varadkar’s comments regarding his attempt to cut down how much meat he was eating.

When asked Varadkar said that he was “trying to eat less meat, both for health reasons and for reasons of climate change.”

Following on the Taoiseach’s statement TD Danny Healy-Rae stated Leo’s comments were the preserve of a metropolitan elite.

The TD then declared that “Them fellas that are talking
about stopping people eating meat have never worked hard. If you’re a hard worker and do a hard days work there’s nothing to bring you back and to revive again than a piece of good meat,”

“Whether ’tis bacon and cabbage or whether ’tis beef or mutton stew, if you don’t that you won’t rise out the following day.”

We reckon the TD may be onto something what are your thoughts?
