Letter: Meat-eating veggies

Sir: Roderick Grant ('Vegetarian bullies', 2 July) has been unlucky in his contact with vegetarians. We are vegetarians but when we have guests who are not, we prepare a meat dish we think would be to their taste, and share it with them. It is a breach of etiquette to offer a guest a meal different from the one prepared for the hosts.

Similarly, when we are guests we eat whatever dish is prepared, without making tiresome protestations or self-righteous remarks.

Perhaps Mr Grant will believe that not all vegetarians are unmannerly bullies. In fact, I have not met any.

Yours faithfully,


Llandrindod Wells, Powys
