It makes me wonder whether this is just the same old liberal/conservative divide in the press playing itself out in environmental issues, or a backlash against sustainability.
The Telegraph article in particular is rather visceral. I know columnists should be allowed to write more or less what they want, but encouraging the eating of endangered species is surely going a little too far.
So this is either the traditional conservative vs. liberal press debate, a backlash against responsible business, or newspaper columnists in a dying industry desperately trying to hang on to reactionary readers.
