Then what's the beef? Pardon the pun. If its a case of flat out fraud then fair enough. If it's about a bunch of NIMBYs moaning about what's
acceptable meat and what's unacceptable meat, then kindly show how horse is a lesser meat than cow. Otherwise, jog on.
Mate...do me a favour and read the thread, or at least the posts from me since you are arguing the toss with me, i've already spelled out exactly why
this is outrageous.
I don't have a problem with people eating meat, i eat meat, my entire family eats meat. Horsemeat may well taste better to some people than beef, but
i would prefer not to have the wool pulled over my eyes at the meat counter, and know that the animals i do choose to feed my family and myself has
been properly vetted and it's history, welfare and farming quality has been monitored.
It's NOT about horsemeat Vs. Beef.
Would any of you in the UK not worry about eating Rat, mice, puppies, kittens, or any other creature, bought from some infested mankey old farm, never
inspected by any agency, no digital tracking or history of any kind and sold to you as chicken?
I doubt it.
There is no difference to what is going on here with the horsemeat..and the horsemeat could just be the ONLY 'foreign' meat products posing as beef
that has been revealed so far, the above list could just as easily be being sneaked onto the market anyway, with Government and agencies crapping
themselves in case the public gets wind of it. It happened with horsemeat, it can happen with ANY.
IF i was starving Drum, monkey et al, i'd honestly consider eating you, so it's not about being sqeamish about Horsemeat, it's about standards and
choice and trust in our food producers right here in the real UK among real consumers, not some hypothetical Mad Max type post holocaust type world
where we couldn't be choosy.
It's about right now, and being cynically lied to for profit motives.
