Also, to clarify the story: If people would bother to read into a story rather than just watching a video or (worse) using the OP as their sole basis
of information (I don't mean literally this thread's OP, I mean any thread's OP that sets out the topic) then it would be obvious that this isn't some
moronic "corporations making the UK eat rats" rubbish...
Long story short: A lot of money to be made in catering (pardon the pun) to the 'bush meat' market in the UK, mostly consisting of African or Middle
Eastern migrants. In this case, Cane Rat, but others include 'normal' meat prepared in certain ways (for example 'smokies' - blowtorched goat). Bush
meat is against the law either because of import law (think endangered species) or on health grounds - the latter most of the time, since particular
cuts or types of meat involve how they're kept/prepared as well as simply what they are. The rules in this area are all to do with keeping out of the
food chain any nasty s**t someone can catch from the meat to begin with (if applicable) and also because if you allow meat to be sold, in some cases,
putrefying right there in the shop window then where do you draw the line with regard to what's "fit for consumption"?
EDIT: Pssst, wanna buy some dog milk?
