UK Prime Minister Can't Go Vegan Because It Takes "So Much Concentration"

by | January 14, 2020

Boris Johnson — the leader of the United Kingdom — has shared that he is unable to do Veganuary because it “requires so much concentration.”

In an interview with Dan Walker for the BBC, Johnson praised those who are able to follow a vegan diet, but stated he wouldn’t be able to do it himself.

“I take my hat off to vegans who can handle it, who manage to avoid all non-vegan products” said Johnson.

“I mean, you can’t eat cheese can you?” the Prime Minister asked Walker, before labelling plant-based diets as a crime against cheese lovers.
