It would help to monitor one country in particular & that´s Polakia.
Polaks love horse meat. It reminds them WW2 when their cavalry challenged German tanks.

You would be hundred percent wrong.Not the case in Ireland.I refuse to buy anything that isnt from an Irish butchers now or processed.its disgusting.Most Irish i know dont buy from even supermarkets anymore meat wise.Shelves looking very full in those processed fridges,meat wise.
If you buy real Irish cuts of meat you will be fine.
One good thing comes out of this real butchers will now get business back and people eating healthier again.

They are all animals you idiots. In guandong in china they eat ~10,000 cats every day. They eat dogs all over asia. In some parts of africa people eat elephants and gorillas. In france there's horsemeat butchers. If you were born in any of these areas you would eat the same thing.

In the west we eat cows, chickens and pigs. Then when the dumbass irish public hear there's traces of horse meat in their mouth they get in a big uproar of feel good political correctness saying it's an outrage and a disgrace, but yet you eat pigs that are know to be smarter than dogs and horses.

Logic has failed you you morons.

Same follows for Salmon, there fed with pellets. You would have to put a bucket of salt to try and match it will a wild Salmon. Shame on those salmon fish farmers.

You sir are the fckin moron, dumbass and the idiot. Do you think there wouldn't be outrage in France if there were traces of beef in their horsemeat ?

or let me really dumb it down for ye k - if you asked someone to paint your house blue and they painted it red would that be ok because in other countries they paint their house red.

Are you actually trying to be retarded? I read your first line, would there be outrage in france if there was beef in their horse meat, and thought; wait.. maybe he understood!

But no, you went and fcked it up for yourself and regressed to retardation.

So we'll go through it slowly. To answer your question, no i don't think there would be outrage if french found beef in their horsemeat as they eat beef too. But i get what your trying to say, a better comparison for you to make would have been would indians be pissed if they found beef in their chicken? Yes as most of the population don't eat beef they'd be rightly pissed.

So i'll give you a more extreme example, some tribes in africa eat their relatives after they die as a sign of respect. If you went to that tribe with your family and your daughter or whatever died you would be expected to eat her, if you didn't it would be seen as disgraceful.

Simply, my point is that your mentality on what is acceptable to eat is determined the area you are socialised in. What i find hilarious is people only recognise how wrong it is to kill something intelligent when they see other cultures eating an animal they don't eat.

But what's most annoying about this horse meat thing is that people overlook all this and having this pc argument just to feel good about themselves, when they really haven't rubbed two brain cells together to think about it.

And try to avoid referring to people as 'sir' and offering to dumb things down as you clearly couldn't brighten things up if you tried. And furthermore, if you think the roots of the horsemeat outrage are strictly based on consent then you've misunderstood the entire outrage.

Forgive me for referring to you as sir I didn't mean to offend but perhaps you shouldn't refer to people as idiots, morons or retards. I think you have missed my point completely so I'll try and explain again. Replace the horse meat with chicken and there would still be an outrage even though we eat both beef and chicken.

Yeah you're absolutely right i shouldn't, but sometimes it's just easy to be weak and fly off the handle and insult people.

Why i usually don't insult people is because if you criticise someone they are get offended and are then more likely to become stubborn and unwilling to admit they or wrong and instead change arguments to suit themselves.

Anyway, no i don't think there would be an outrage if it was chicken, or pig, which i'd bet there are. Do you really think there would?

You're saying there is an outrage as people are not getting the product they are asking for. I don't think you believe that
