I'm sure your freezer was full of turkey twizzlers you pikey chav.warrant said:As soon as i heard about the Bernard Matthews u.k. outbreak

Home made bread is much better - especially for a monster bacon sarnie. You can make the bread as big as you want!ugly said:I never have trusted mass produced food and always buy locally from the farm shop or go and shoot it myself. My freezers are always full of game. The wife does shop at supermarkets but thats because of stuff such a bleach etc. We make our own breaad and are considering getting some bantams in.
Good on you mate the whole processing and packaging anywhere in EU rule means it can be labeled as British produce is a crime that only the kiddy fiddling belgies would have thought up!GDav said:What concerns me more than anything is the fact that for years Bernard Matthews advertised itself as selling "Norfolk Turkey". Now we find out that the stuff is being imported from Hungary, thus putting British Turkeys out of work.
I'm no fan of the products, never have been, but I will make a point of NOT buying them again because anyone who is creating jobs overseas when they could be providing work here should be penalised.
I do buy foreign foods and foreign beers when I want to, if I fancy but I prefer to buy British. Same goes for any company who starts an overseas call centre - I will never do business with them and I'll tell them why, already have done on a few occasions.
