TMB chairman apologises for offensive anti-vegan remarks

Tripe Marketing Board chairman Sir Norman Wrassle has this evening apologised for anti-vegan remarks he reportedly made during a speech to the annual general meeting of the Lytham St Annes Ladies' League earlier today.

Sir Norman, whose comments were covertly recorded and broadcast on Driving Home with Chris Marrs, the flagship Lancashire Radio news and current affairs show, said he was sorry if his views offended anybody.

"The comments were totally unintentional. I apologise unreservedly for any offence caused," he said, adding that he had merely been responding to a question from the audience.

Sir Norman was happy to acknowledge that his description of vegans as "pasty-faced retards who ponce around wearing tofu-stained jumpers" was potentially offensive to some people - particularly pale-faced, tofu-eating jumper wearers - but he maintained that his comments were taken out of context.  "I hope this does not put people off trying tripe - that was the last thing I intended," he said.
