Horsing around

That the horse meat story is still going, long after the jokes got tired, is a source of bemusement. And whilst it may not be something that we Brits are used to eating, the French (and no doubt other nationalities) certainly are.

The problem as I see it is not so much that the meat is in the certain parts of our UK’s food supply but that someone has been lying about the provenance of it.

Wasn’t all of the legislation (both domestic and EU) which followed the BSE scare* designed specifically to prevent people not knowing where their meat was and where it came from?

Clearly another stunning success from big government…

* Remind me, how many people upped and died of vCJD?
