When a country’s debt is unmanageable, what suffers? ……. e.g. Beef is substituted with “horse meat”!

Posted: February 7, 2013 in Uncategorized

Here’s a sign that a huge debt and subsequent “austerity/punishment” program doesn’t do much for one’s quality of life let alone makes life bearable under a debt-ridden Governance!

Britain is a prime example of how bad things can get when products have be “downsized” or even “watered down” such as milk and smaller portions of food.

Today we find out that instead of selling “Beef”products in the major stores and fast food outlets, people are being fed “HORSE MEAT” disguised as beef!

Sounds about right for the coming Great Depression number 2!

Tests reveal Findus frozen beef lasagnes contain ‘up to 100 per cent horse meat’

Findus, Tesco and Aldi all withdrew a variety of frozen beef products from sale yesterday following new information from a French supplier, Comigel

THURSDAY 07 FEBRUARY 2013 MARTIN HICKMAN

Frozen lasagnes sold by UK supermarkets contain up to 100 per cent horse meat, food officials revealed tonight.

The Food Standards Agency said tests showed that Findus beef frozen lasagnes contained 60 per cent to 100 per cent horse meat.

It says it has ordered tests into whether the horse meat has traces of a banned equine drug, phenylbutazone, or ‘bute’, which is harmful to humans.

Findus, Tesco and Aldi all withdrew a variety of frozen beef products from sale yesterday following new information from a French supplier, Comigel.

Tesco and Aldi have said the frozen lasagne and spaghetti Bolognese do not conform to specification but have not specified the problem.

There are growing suspicions that they, too, contain horse meat.

Britain’s Burger King drops supplier over horsemeat fears

LONDON — British and Irish burger fans could face a Whopper shortage. Burger King has stopped buying beef from an Irish meat processor whose patties were found to contain traces of horsemeat.

The fast food chain said Thursday it had dropped Silvercrest Foods as a supplier for its U.K. and Ireland restaurants as a “voluntary and precautionary measure.”

Last week Silvercrest, which is owned by ABP Food Group, shut down its production line and recalled 10 million burgers from supermarket shelves in Britain and Ireland after horse DNA was found in some beef products.

    Horsemeat in burgers – I find this rather amusing albeit terue in a minute number of cases. The supermarkets have not been managing their food supply chains properly.Now they are setting up procedures to test the DNA in meat. But what goes into Canadian food ? Are you sure that beef is really beef ? or is pork, pork ? Do not feel too secure on this one.

    In the UK , Blair’s Government bankrupted us and our current fairly mediocre Government is trying and failin to sort the debt. There is a £Trillion of debt in the public asector pension schmes and another £Trillion of borrowings. Our welfare state is bloated – on average UK eranings it pays NOT to work in the Uk so millions don’t !

    WE hope that Canadian, Mark Carney can sort it for us as the new Governor (Boss) of the Bank of England. He cannot but every little helps !

    • Hey Mike
      Don’t depend on Carney to do much more than support the banks……………..he is of course ex Goldman Sachs which isn’t the best pedigree for an “honest banker”!
      He has continually yapped off how Canadians are carrying too much household debt and they should stop borrowing money to live!
      That’s the problem here….how can people stop borrowing money to LIVE when they don’t make enough money for food heat or water bills???????…………….and he has the nerve to suggest it’s the people’s fault!
      Does the word “Globalist” come to mind here???
      Good luck Britain……………….we are right behind you!!!!
