So I did some research and found myself sitting, highlighter in hand, staring at 55 pages of legislation with multiple browser windows in front of me, growing increasingly frustrated that what I was reading was, firstly, hugely open to individual's interpretation and, simultaneously, so full of inaccessible language that I needed explanatory notes to understand it.

The government have been keen to show that they are doing something to help, that they are taking a strong stance. In reality this is manifesting in violence and cruelty rather than addressing the root cause - modern farming methods.

Historically cow's milk has enjoyed outstanding public relations, cleverly associating itself with fit athletes, strong bones and white-moustached seductively posturing celebrities.

In Denmark 85 per cent of farms were grazing cows on grass in 2001, but by 2010 this had reduced to just 35 per cent . In the US the majority of dairy farms are industrial-scale indoor systems which can house tens of thousands of cows.

Having a vegan as shadow minister for agriculture may well upset the cosy rapport farmers have with government at the moment, but I thought that was the point of electing Corbyn in the first place.
