Sir Norman, who was speaking at the launch of the new home delivery service, Tripe Direct, hailed the announcement by saying: "This is good news for tripe. Our product is one of the most reviled and destested foodstuffs in the social media. Even a cursory search of Twitter will reveal how much hate is directed our way." He said he hoped to see a reduction in the abuse aimed at tripe in the months and years ahead.
Sir Norman pointed to examples of the hate that Twitter users had shown towards tripe. "When you see some of the language used, I think you can see why this guidance is necessary," he said.

At the same time, he acknowledged that tripe lovers might have to curb their emotions when responding to insults if they were themselves to avoid prosecution. "They may have to turn down some of their anti-vegan rhetoric, I'm afraid. A staple diet of tofu and chard makes them unduly sensitive, and I can see one or two of them chomping at the bit to get into the courtroom," he said.
