Letter: Pork for the chop

From Mr Julian Morris

Sir: If I were in the meat trade, I think I would be planing to take a long Christmas break. From Friday, pork sales will probably dip more than BSE beef due to the UK release of the film Babe, an irresistible tale of a polite young porker's efforts to stay off the Christmas lunch table. After I saw the film in August, in the hyper-carnivorous US, pork sales reportedly dropped by 20 per cent.
