Here in the UK we seem have the same sort of core value thing about eating meat as Americans have about guns and Trump. I must admit until the age of about 30 I thought Vegans were from another world - for which I blame early exposure to Dan Dare and the Eagle comic.

For centuries we fought the French over whether it was better to eat cows or horses - they even call us Le Roast Bif.

Deep down we know that giving up meat will inevitably lead to transvestitism and embracing our European neighbours as equals.

He's been a vegetable since the car accident. No, he's a vegetarian - he was a vegetarian before the accident and he's still one now.

Many just don't see the point of selling 'meat' but without any actual meat in it - same with decaff coffee - why would anyone even want to do that?

It's an uphill struggle.
