Tory politician Jacob Rees-Mogg revealed on Twitter he would not eat in vegan restaurant  because it would be ‘disloyal’ to some of his constituents.

The MP from North East Somerset made the comment in a tweet sharing a plant-based food review by disgraced former Waitrose Food magazine editor William Sitwell, who was forced to resign as editor of Waitrose Food magazine after he used his professional email account to respond to a journalist's pitch with jokes about killing vegans. Sitwell now works for The Telegraph.

The former editor of Waitrose Food magazine left the publication after mocking vegans, joking that they should be force-fed meat.

William Sitwell had made the comments in an email to a freelance journalist Selene Nelson, a vegan, who had pitched Sitwell a “plant-based meal series” looking at meat-free dishes.

In comments reported by BuzzFeed News, Sitwell replied: “Hi Selene. Thanks for this. How about a series on killing vegans, one by one. Ways to trap them? How to interrogate them properly? Expose their hypocrisy? Force-feed them meat? Make them eat steak and drink red wine?”
