    Default Shergar Burgers

    I dont understand what all the whinnying and neighs to horse meat is all about.

    I dont expect horse and pork in a "beef" burger, but I dont get the " horse OMG" or Julia Hartley Brewer's thought that bin men in the UK will find partially defrosted packs in the bins. Or still frozen if up north.

    What I also found fascinating that it puts paid to the myth that certain big stores maintain that their own brand is unique when other named traders, of a perceived different quality, are withdrawing a product that is identical, often sold for far less,as they come from the same supplier.....

    Such as a certain store that stopped selling the brand of porage in favour of their unique own brand of the "Quality" range.

    As long as Shergar or Dobbin was slaughtered properly bring it on and pass the ketchup

    I'm up North. So where can I find these packs of FROZEN horsemeat? Could feed my two sons, six cats, dog, myself and have some bits left over for the hens!

    Spinning news out of proportion is the main earner for the media these days.

    I don't get all the fuss either - horsemeat's openly sold alongside beef here - is just as tasty. Our local Chinese got caught with dog meat (no - not Chappie) in their freezers and at a supper table one evening I challenged the notion that there was anything wrong with that - stunned silence from dog-owning diners suggested it wouldn't have been kind to pursue the argument.

    The ethically important bit is the raising and slaughtering, and for the rest - it's only social custom, nothing more.

    Our local Chinese got caught with cat meat. It was just like chicken but the meat texture was swirly rather than in lines like chicken. It was nice. But I don't like the idea of eating somebody's pet

    You say that some restaurant got 'caught' with cat or dog meat. Is it actually illegal?

    It is when it's being sold as chicken!
    The opinions I give are simply my opinions and interpretations of what I have learnt, in numerous years as a property professional, I would not rely upon them without consulting with a paid advisor and providing them with all the salient facts BSc (Hons)

    I'm not sure if it is illegal here - they weren't shut down, and never heard the follow up of whether they were fined or not.

    Eating pets... hmmm - we had a rooster 'pet' when I was a child (well - it was my elder sister's she won as a chick at the village fair) he turned into a right aggressive b chasing and pecking at the milkman or doctor or anyone else who dared visit, so was despatched to the local butcher and returned 'dressed' (never did really understand that term). We all stared at our plates Sunday lunchtime whilst father declared that he was still a tough old b even in death...

    Chinese dishes have metaphorical names. Everyone knows that a "Golden Hairy Chicken" is honey roasted cat

    Oh yeah yoo rike Rucky Fried Kitten ?!

    Horror story - a local noodle restaurant specialises in carrot and orange juice and similar in large glasses. While waiting for a takeaway, I saw the half drunk glasses being emptied into jugs and resold/re-served, and the celery stalk checked rinsed and re served. Didn't pay never went back.


    But horse meat c'mon gee up and enjoy, it can't be worse than the average glucose water or brine injected bleached or coloured meat that is the average supermarket fare.
