Following the fuss about Pizza Express, it occurs to me that the fairest thing might be to label all meat with its method of slaughter. So anything killed halal would be labelled "throat cut".

But we should also label all meat killed by western industrial methods in the same way. Thus:

- poultry and pigs on whom gas is used should be labelled "gassed"
- poultry and sheep on whom electricity is used should be labelled "electrocuted"
- cows on whom stun guns are used should be labelled "bolt through the brain"
- and of course any fish you buy will be labelled "prolonged asphyxiation".

I wonder how many people's shopping habits might change.
