Forgive me if I'm wrong here, but surely by buying a metric assload of meat (then having it destroyed, or given to homeless people, or whatever - makes no difference), Morrissey actually increased the number of animals being slaughtered?
The meat vendors, having had all their meat taken away, would now order an equal amount to replace that which was missing - an extra amount that would not have been ordered otherwise.
Not a vegetarian myself but an impressive gesture from Mozz nonetheless in my view.

Believe nothing you read in the newspapers.
