there's nothing wrong with horse meat - it's superb quality with low fat and pretty tasty for those who like it -
the scandal is more of a labelling fraud and the companies must be pretty stupid as horse meat is the most expensive of all available (no exotics included of course) so why use it instead of the cheaper beef etc...

I quite agree, it's not a health issue at all. Just mis-representation, combined with the fact that horse meat is not commonly eaten in the UK.

With regard to price, I think perhaps you're confusing a prime horse steak with an old nag that was only fit for the knackers yard :laughing-rolling:

as you're not a horse-eating nation just a few facts:
normally as soon as a horse sees the light of the day eu laws force you to tell whether it'll be eaten or just raced and everything needs to be noted in a passport -
as soon as the horse needs certain medications the "eat me" option expires, just like with it getting an old nag as you put it -
of course horses are not the standard meal in central europe but there are specialty restaurants etc. and horses are raised to be eaten just like cattle (in smaller numbers)...

Personally, I'd have no problem eating it, though from the latest scandal I probably already have !

I think the main issue in the UK appears to be labelling
