Moving on from pork for a moment, my beef with Starmer is that he is lacking the courage to go fully anti-Brexit.
The economic analyses and the last 18 months' data are now so damning that we have gone from "on the balance of probability" to "beyond all reasonable doubt". Leaving the EU will cripple the country.
Even the half-way house of EFTA/Norway is untenable, unsupportable and cannot be afforded.
The only remaining reason for wanting to leave the EU is racism and, in financial terms alone, the country is in no position to indulge that.
Starmer is a bright man - among the best of the best - so he knows all of this and doubtless much more. He now needs find the spine to confront these uncomfortable truths.
