Let Them Eat Less: Designer/Aristocrat Declares That If Poor People Can't Afford Pricey Organic Food, They Should Just Eat Less

They're almost openly campaigning for a second look at the guillotine.

Dame Vivienne Westwood, the fashion designer, has declared that people who canít afford to buy organic food should "eat less" and stop getting fat. The millionaire designer made the comments as she delivered a petition to Downing Street protesting about genetically modified food.

When a BBC Radio 5 Live interviewer suggested that "not everybody can afford to eat organic food", Dame Vivienne replied: "Eat less!"

Told that many people in Britain are visiting food banks because they donít have enough to put on their tables, so "to eat less isnít an option", Dame Vivienne was dismissive.

"They donít have any choice Ė this is the point, isnít it," she said.

"Youíve got all these processed foods, which is the main reason people are getting fat. Theyíre not actually good for you - they don't give you strength, they give you weight.

"I eat vegetables and fruit. I donít eat meat. I believe meat is bad for me so I donít eat it. Itís also bad for the animals.

"If there was a movement to produce more organic food and less of the horrible food, then organic food would obviously be a good value price, wouldnít it?"
