Won't Someone Think of The Children?

Nanny keeps bleating that she cares about kids, if that is the case why has she fed them horsemeat in "Cottage pies" (more accurately termed "Stable pies") in numerous schools around the country?

    In answer to your question Ken, I suspect it is because all too many of Nanny's policies are cost lead rather than goal lead.
    Nanny has tried to cut, cut and cut again the costs of school catering whilst increasing the the cost to the end user: my daughter pays £20-00 a week to provide school meals to my middle and youngest grandsons and they get mostly processed crap served to them.

    When I was at school in the 1950s and 1960s, every school had an army of cooks and a proper commercial kitchen, which turned out meals made from scratch, using fresh, seasonal ingredients. Now it seems schools use external contractors who pay a pittance to their unskilled "cooks,"(sic) to warm up preprepared food. I call this type of meal a ding dinner (The sound of the microwave)

    If Nanny really cared about her children, she would not need a celebrity chef to tell her how to supply good quality food to them, which would benefit their health and wellbeing, she would not of got rid of the system that had worked for decades, in the first place!

    Kids need to be taught about food and cooking in school again: it used to be called home economics......All too often, Nanny gets rid of something that has served our people well over the years, just to be modern and progressive without first looking at the reasons the policy was adopted in the first place and what the likely pitfalls might be in the future.

    I have eaten horse in the past and thought it was very nice.
    If horse meat is so cheap: one fifth the cost of beef, perhaps this would be a good sourse of protein to promote for the less well off. I would buy it. I wonder why we see some animals as food animals in this country, but recoil in horror if someone suggests we eat some others?

      Sorry about the spelling mistakes and bad grammar in the above.....I really must read it, before I publish it in the future.

    Nevermind the kids - bloody hell, I don't want horsemeat in my jam rolypoly and custard

  3. I don't really see what all the fuss is about re horsemeat.

    1. If one is a meat eater (as opposed to a vegetarian) one cannot really
    get all hoity-toity about not eating horse, or dog, as opposed to beef.

    2. Surely the problem is really one of MISLABELLING? Let them have their horse meat mince if they so wish, but let it be labelled as such rather than labelled as something it isn't.

    The French and the Dutch don't blench at horse meat, and the Chinese don't seem to blench at anything ('long-pork' anyone?); and from a nutritional point of view there's nothing wrong with horse meat. If one wants to say there is something wrong with killing horses to eat them, then one has to conclude that it is wrong to kill any animal to eat it and one must become a vegetarian.

    1. I have eaten horsemeat, it's fine with horseradish sauce.

      The issues are:

      1 Mislabelling

      2 Fraud (wherein the consumer is being conned into paying more for something that he/she should)

      3 Health risk posed by equine drugs not meant for human consumption

    I have eaten horse meat too and enjoyed it very much, but when it comes to minced up meat one has to remember that the meat used is borderline fit for human consumption. Unless brought directly from a butcher, the meat used is dodgy, to say the least.

    Supermarket brought minced beef products will not contain prime cuts of beef which have been carefully selected. They will contain the parts of the animal that cannot be sold in any other form.
    It is reasonable to assume that the horse content of the alleged minced beef is also derived from the parts of the horse which would not normally be eaten.

    The supermarkets have been selling us crap and the supermarkets must take full responsibility for that.

    If I were to buy any product from any shop only to take it home and find that it is not what I paid for or not fit for purpose then it would be for the shop to exchange it or offer a full refund.
    I would not give a flying fuck where the product was manufactured or who the wholesaler or delivery agent was, I would want my fucking money back with no questions asked and no excuses given.

    Why are we hearing about abattoirs in Rumania, processing plants in Luxemburg and distributers in Southern France when it is the supermarkets and other outlets that are totally responsible?
