I've no objection to eating horse meat. I'm old enough to remember there being a horse meat butchers on Kirkgate in Leeds. What I object to that they passed this stuff off as beef. What else is in meat ready meals that we don't know about. There was an item the other week saying that in the future we'll all have to get our protein from insects. How do we know we aren't already?


Interesting. Was it an "ethnic thing" or did the average Loiner eat horse meat?

Ethnic as in Yorkshire? :unsure:

It was eaten by the average Loiner but the support from Bramley and Hunslet folk declined, meaning that the retail operation relocated and reopened as a boutique cheval outlet in Headingley owned by a local magnate. ;)

I know it's not the point but if they'd offered horsemeat lasagne, I'd've probably gone out and tried it. Tomorrow night I'll have to try the zebra I got.

Tastes the same has horse meat but in a different package

It'll have to be this week anyway, stuff already bought in for last Saturday's tea. It should be interesting, dunno what to expect.

We'd have to consult a doctor, although not Dr Koukash obviously, I'm surprised the media aren't blaming RL... coincedence? I think not!


Consulted my doctor and he told me to watch what I eat. So I went to see the 2.15 at Newmarket.

So one source is our local slaughterhouse. They actually collected the wife's horse when she had him put down, but I'd like to hope as that was over 5 years ago, it's not him in people are eating. :blink: Wouldn't have got much meat off him anyway. :lol:

It's revenge for 500 years of oppression. And don't worry, we haven't finished yet.

From the Daily Mail:

Peter Boddy, right, the farmer whose slaughterhouse is under investigation by police, is well-known locally for his collection of exotic animals.
At his farm in Todmorden, West Yorkshire - separately from his abattoir business - Mr Boddy keeps dozens of beasts not usually found in the North of England.
Some of his menagerie are native to Australia, such as wallabies and black swans, while larger beasts include elk, ostriches and bison.
He also keeps small animals like porcupines and muntjac deer.
A large herd of red deer, which he sends out to other farmers for breeding, is kept at his own deer park close to his farm and abattoir.
Mr Boddy's zoo has its origins in an initiative called Live Animal Capture, which sedates dangerous animals and takes them into captivity for the safety of themselves and others.

Has anyone heard any newsreaders call it 'Tod-morden' as opposed to its proper name 'Todmudden'?

No I don't care if you're if you're into different bands

No cause for so much hatred, I'm just a different man

Pull off that cover, I will too, and learn to understand

That's pretty normal stuff for the Calder Valley. :)

Yes, that happens whenever Tod is in the news, which isn't very often.

There is a barber shop in Todmorden that goes by the name of "Sweeney's of Tod." :D I've never had my hair cut there though. :unsure:

Timely, considering the news of some meats not being what they seem. Is there a pie shop next door?
