The Vegetarian Society made these comments in a Daily Mirror article in 2006 in which tripe was described as ‘the most hated dish in Britain.'
Tripe Marketing Board chairman Sir Norman Wrassle said, “It’s time to draw a line under this matter. Let’s face it, some vegetables are pretty repulsive. Cauliflower is pretty revolting, celeriac is no oil painting and as for squash, it’s practically inedible.
“However inexcusable these remarks seemed seven years ago, at a time when we’re actively extending the hand of friendship to vegans, we think it’s time to forgive and forget.”
