Re: Are you a vegan? If not, why not?

Re: If you could prevent your existence, would you?

That doesn't detract from what you remember about it and should not stop you from being the good, kind person you ...

Richard Tice ‏Verified account @TiceRichard My first day in Brussels as a new MEP was enough to get a taste of the astonishing privileges that go with the job.
