In this talk, delivered at VegfestUK Brighton 2016, Tim Barford examines the Abolitionist Approach to Animal Rights, and concludes that the ideology is of much value - but the approach is both immoral in principle and unworkable in practice.   Tim has a high regard for Gary L. Francione, and...

Tim Barford spoke for 30 minutes recently on the Species Barrier Radio show about some of the changes that have occurred within VegfestUK and the UK Vegan movement during the last year or so.   A fascinating insight into the core of the UK vegan movement, Tim is better positioned than most to...
VegfestUK, Vegfest Scotland and Yaoh manager Tim Barford has taken to quoting Socrates as he clarifies his own position on a number of issues relating to the current UK vegan movement.     Following on from the success of VegfestUK London 2015 last October, which saw amongst other things...
