So the great horsemeat saga continues to run with no sign of the finishing post in sight. Ministers call in supermarket bosses for a chat (they daren’t say too much for fear of a drop in donations to the party coffers) and more food is removed from sale. The simple fact remains: the only way to ensure what you are eating is what it claims to be and no animal cruelty is involved – Buy British. Otherwise you get what you pay for and a whole lot more…
The Findus Stakes have been cancelled,
At Market-Rasen and Newmarket too,
It won’t be seen at Ascot with the Queen,
I’ve got the runners, have you?
There’s tiger bread in the supermarket,
A zebra is crossing there too,
Would you eat a jumbo sausage,
If Findus sponsored a zoo?
