Up to 50,000 missing horses may have ended up as food sold in Britain

Telegraph, Saturday 17th October 2015
As many as 50,000 horses “disappeared” across Europe during the financial crisis and may have ended up in food sold in Britain, the country’s leading food security expert has claimed. Professor Chris Elliot, who led the Government inquiry into the horse meat scandal, said the animals began to disappear as people’s budgets became tight after the banking meltdown in 2008. He indicated that families on the Continent who owned horses might have given in to criminal gangs, deciding the animal was too expensive to keep. With no trace of the horses on record, it was “possible” that they had been killed and the meat used in cheap burgers and ready meals such as lasagne.

About thespeedofdark

David Winship has written an unauthorised autobiography and several critically disdained literary tomes. His work is frequently compared with Steinbeck, Orwell and Hemingway, but unfortunately Mike Steinbeck, Daisy Orwell and Howard Hemingway were all terrible writers. He has been totally overlooked for the most prestigious literary awards worldwide, which is a shame as most of the words are spelled correctly. In fact, his books contain material that ranks with the finest literary works in history: all the right letters are there, just not necessarily in the right order.

Dave’s blog (The Speed Of Dark Blog) is part of his crusade for truth and justice and universal entitlement to free real ale. It may well be that his whole purpose in life is to serve as a warning to others.
