Monbiot wrote a cop-out article suggesting people eat less meat - he admits that veganism might be even better for the environment, but apparently can't advocate a diet that he couldn't personally follow. Here, Kim Stallwood vents some prime grumpy veganicity in response.
30*cough*something English vegan in Scotland. Enamoured of ducks and coffee. Not enamoured of finding milk in a packet of cashew nuts. I make cake and sometimes make trouble. I don't bite unless the intended victim asks nicely and offers chocolate. That's part of what being vegan is about.
