Give horsemeat-tainted food to poor - German minister.
Germany's development minister has suggested food tainted with horsemeat should be distributed to the poor.
Dirk Niebel said he supported the proposal by a member of the governing CDU party, and concluded: "We can't just throw away good food." The opposition dismissed the idea, but a priest said it should be considered.

Will it get past the hurdle of public opinion? Will it be seen as part of a stable diet?

If it's going to be given to the poor it ought to contain that horse medicine that will kill them.

The Germans being historically adept at eating rats and zoo animals when they have to.
To be fair, they copied the idea from the French during the siege of Paris 1870-71

* Consommé de cheval au millet. (horse)
* Brochettes de foie de chien à la maître d'hôtel. (dog)
* Emincé de rable de chat. Sauce mayonnaise. (cat)
* Epaules et filets de chien braisés. Sauce aux tomates. (dog)
* Civet de chat aux champignons. (cat)
* Côtelettes de chien aux petits pois. (dog)
* Salamis de rats. Sauce Robert. (rats)
* Gigots de chien flanqués de ratons. Sauce poivrade. (dog, rats)
* Begonias au jus. (flowers)
* Plum-pudding au rhum et à la Moelle de Cheval. (horse)

The Christmas menu after 90+ days included elephant, kangeroo, and donkey. So not much change from normal Parisian fare.

They also invented margarine, something to be remembered when some poncy frog rattles on about French cuisine, which they lifted from the Italians anyway.

How much longer are we going to be trotting this crap out?

TESCO and some of the other lower-order supermarkets have been doing it for a while, it would appear.

They've been doing it for fucking years, they've only just been found out.

They would put much worse in if they could get away with it.

we'll need a gallop pole before such decisions are undertaken, and it could be a close run thing, even a photo finish..!!
We need to get back in the saddle, however we don't want to stirrup too much trouble by reigning it in too fast.

Its neck and neck at the moment, but if we're not fast we'll be locking the gate long after its bolted. Worst case is we'll be flogging a dead one.
