I do not think it is about the "harmful" effects of the cloned meat that is the problem.
It is the fact that the cloned meat was intentionally* put into our food chain to see how the people would react. Typical British we have barely
kicked up a fuss which means that the Food Standards Agency (FSA) will take that as a mark of acceptance.
The next thing you will know is that a law is being passed to allow cloned beef in every supermarket you normally shop at. Next step is that animals
are engineered for meat purposes only, brain dead and kept in cages (battery hens anyone?). This is a slippery slope and us Brits really should stop
allowing this sort of thing to happen
* As with the Baxter live bird flu virus mix up
I am pretty confident
that any "cloned meat" would be kept far far away from normal meats when being slaughtered for this exact reason. Thus, I conclude that any such
mix up was intentional just like with Baxter.
