'Anti-Australian': MP Bob Katter Rails Against Meat-Free Pies

An Australian politician has taken to social media to declare a pie-maker “anti-Australian” after the company announced it would be producing a meat-free pie.

Pie-maker Four’N’Twenty announced on February 20 it would be introducing the new product to its traditional range of pastries.

“They are now serving vegan pies at the football in Melbourne. I haven’t heard of anything more anti-Australian. Let’s fight back and continue to eat Aussie beef,” Bob Katter, a member of the national parliament, said in the Facebook video.
