Heather Mills delivered a speech recently at Speakers’ Corner in London’s Hyde Park, where lunatics and the deranged have famously spoken their minds for centuries. Mills harangued the crowd that consuming meat and dairy was damaging the environment and that perhaps if they drank the milk of animals other than cows the country would be more eco-friendly. “It’s mad that we are having cows’ milk,” she shouted. “Even cows don’t drink it after one year but we continue forever. There are 25 alternative milks available in health shops and supermarkets. Why do we not drink rats’ milk, cats’ milk, or dogs’ milk?” Actually, she might have a point: Bea, Mills’ daughter with Paul McCartney, was nursed on a rat’s milk, and she seems to have turned out all right.
