I can now reveal that the discovery of horse meat in beef burgers is related to tax avoidance.
On a BBC report this morning I heard that the main samples of meat infected with ponies originated in the Netherlands. And given that the burger manufacturer is in Ireland, we don’t need to do any research at all to conclude that this is some form of tax avoidance.
Presumably the Dutch and Irish businesses have been charging some sort of royalties for developing new blends of meat.
Almost certainly, the Dutch suppliers have justified these royalties by experimenting with the blend of beef and horse, and which sort of horses taste closest to beef or compliment beef best.
The Justice for Taxes Network has always argued that tax avoidance could lead to horses entering the human food chain in this country.
Perhaps it’s time you started listening to me Mr Cameron.
