UK PM Considers Meat Free Monday LOHAS Law to woo green voters, avoid hung parliament :
Vegan cookbook author Tony Bishop-Weston claims UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown is considering a new LOHAS law to woo green voters and recruit a celebrity line up of ethical celebrities to avoid a hung parliament at the next election
X Factor impresario Simon Cowell is widely rumoured to be helping hard core, vegan, Leona Lewis to release a Meat Free Monday song with Sir Paul McCartney to push environmental, health and ethical issues higher up on the political agenda and to put pressure on political leaders leading up to the general election.
"The main parties are turning the election into a personality war with negative posters - it's imperative we get policy and solutions for the impending disasters that face the world back on the agenda" Bishop-Weston said today
Simon said recently "I love eating meat, but I love our planet and Leona even more, so I have joined Sir Paul McCartney's Meat Free Monday campaign and stopped eating meat at least one day a week." Sir Richard Branson is known to share Simon's views on this.
Music Industry insiders say that, with help from Virgin Media, a leading UK animal rights group plan to send downloads of the Meat free Monday Leona Lewis track to all candidates standing in the general election irrespective of their political party.
Paul McCartney's Beatles track 'All we need is Love' is tipped as hot favorite, but with Leona Lewis's unique spin, as the Lyrics seem most apt for these times and the target group of voters.
'Nothing you can make that can't be made.
No one you can save that can't be saved.
Nothing you can do, but you can learn
How to be you in time -
All you need is love, all you need is love'
Part time Vegan Steve Jobs from Apple who make the iphone could get involved too and is apparently discussing new free conscious consumer apps with leading networks such as O2 and Orange.
Prime Minister to Recruit Celebrities and Green Voters for Labour Election Win
With more Green Party candidates standing than ever before it's alleged Gordon Brown has initiated a secret deal with Sir Richard Branson, Sir Paul McCartney and Simon Cowell to win the hearts and minds of the Green Party voters and avoid leaving the balance of power with the Green Party in a hung parliament.
Political Analysts Find LOHAS key
As the risks of a hung parliament looks increasingly likely the political mathematicians and analysts have worked out that wooing the green voters and vegetarians could make a crucial difference in tipping the balance of power in Labour's favour.
Political psychologists have mapped out an average profile of the prospective voters who hold those key votes in marginal seats.
They are most likely to be summed up by the term LOHAS - (Lifestyle of Health and Sustainability)
1) They regularly eat vegan and dairy free vegetarian food and at Vegetarian Restaurants
2) They are concerned about the environment, global warming and sustainability issues
3) They shop ethically, looking out for Fair Trade, organic, vegetarian, vegan and free from labeling
4) They have a positive attitude to optimum health and try to lead healthy lifestyles, nutrition and fitness
5) They are against blood sports such as foxhunting and killing for fun in general
6) They tend to be more likely to be pro-equal rights, pro Europe, pro-democracy, pro-proportional representation and a fair system of taxation to deal with social injustices.
Gordon Brown meets Greens Half Way
A source has revealed today that Gordon Brown has allegedly had secret talks with Sir Richard Branson, Sir Paul Mcartney, Simon Cowell and various celebrities on the telephone about using the world's most famous ethical champions to communicate Labour's new LOHAS LAW in an attempt to woo green and vegetarian Voters.
Sir Paul McCartney is rumoured to have insisted that he would only help Gordon Brown if the Prime Minister agreed to make the adoption of Meat Free Mondays compulsory in public buildings such as council offices, hospitals and schools.
Some UK councils are already discussing meat free Mondays and a days focus on 5 a day fruit and vegetables has already been adopted by some schools in London.
Meat Free Monday Law
Removing meat from the menu and eating more fruit and vegetables is claimed by environmental, health groups and even government websites as being the single most effective thing you can do to lessen the effects of global warming and improve national health.
Leading UK celebrity nutritionist Yvonne Bishop-Weston said today "There's no doubt that any party that wants to win the election has to reassure voters that they are going to have a radical rethink about the way the NHS is run. Too much money is spent on crisis management of the sick and not nearly enough on preventative measures to keep people well. A practical focus on genuinely healthy diets in schools and health trusts would be welcomed by nutritionists, so much of our time is spent explaining the blindingly obvious"
Gordon Brown said " How can the Tory party claim to be the party of change when their policies - defending the Lords, backing fox hunting, inheritance tax cuts - are the very policies that have defined the Conservative Party for more than 100 years? "
An insider revealed it appears Gordon Brown now seems convinced that appealing to pro vegetarian voters and backing Sir Paul McCartney's Meat Free Monday Campaign will help reassure voters that Brown means business on environmental, ethical and natural health issues.
Leader of the Conservatives, David Cameron has pledged to spend less than Labour on health and make the National Health Service accountable to the 'man in the street' rather than health experts. There are fears that an irresponsible pill popping, pill for an ill, anti-nutrient rich fast food culture will continue to flourish and we'll end up with more Burger Restaurants in Hospitals such as London suburban Mayday Hospital in Croydon if the Tory led 'man in the street' gets his say.
Nutritionist, Bishop-Weston says "The trouble is that 'the man in the street' is overweight, increasingly suffering from heart disease and or diabetes and the effects of stress all of which can be helped with better nutrition and eating less processed food. 'The man on the street' not really the best qualified and experienced person to run the National Health Service based on those credentials is he?"
There are sure to be a host of UK loving healthy vegetarian and vegan celebrities such as Madonna, Natalie Portman, Toby McGuire , Leona Lewis and Russell Brand as well as the McCartney family celebrating when Gordon Brown announces his new Meat Free Monday LOHAS Law plans.
