Eating meat could be banned like smoking, says top barrister, as he calls for new crime of 'ecocide'

Eating meat could be banned like smoking, one of Britain’s foremost barristers has predicted, as he called for the offence of ‘ecocide’ to be introduced to prosecute those who damage the nature on a massive scale.
