I prefer not to think about things like this. We all know terrible things may lie behind the food that we eat - but I am shocked that it is this bad.

 

News like this really makes me feel sick.

 

But, you have to face facts... some of our food comes from East Anglia. :Ill:

Don't eat pork anyway.

As Submarine said, the majority of other places conduct themselves better than that, and deal with the animals in the most humane way possible and give them a better quality of life. That being said, they're still being killed one way or the other. You'd have to be short-sighted to not see that what you're eating was reared to be killed and eaten.

A few shock videos won't change anything or make people realise something they don't already know but don't consciously admit to.

I've seen worse. Doesn't stop me from eating my sausages and bacon and what have you. I'll eat meat, as I was born as an animal, to eat other animals.

Cruelty will always happen, to all animals and insects of the world. Not much we can do about it. Just buy free range meat, or farm your own.


It's our fault too, because we buy the cheap meat. Doesn't stop me from buying cheap meat though, mostly because it's what I can afford, and most other families in the UK.

 

You can also buy local farmed food, and support your local farms.

I farm my own animals up here and my hill and I've been known to cook the odd pig or two alive when I'm drunk. Quite funny to watch little piggies run around in flames doused in petrol.

Of course I'm telling fibs before anyone complains, I would never do that to an animal..........only cats!

I jest again, don't attack me you cat loving freaks!

I generally avoid packed meat because of the health risks. But I'd eat packed meat if I really had to, I also hate how packed meat tastes so fake, it kind of makes me sick. We go to the Butchers for meat because you get what you pay for, good quality tasty meat with out all the junk. And if your visiting the Butchers pretty much everyday they start giving you extra, like when I ask for a steak I get twice the size he'd normally give people, and also He's give me like an extra sausage or something. So things work out a lot better at the end of day, even if a good yummy steak can cost £6 or whatever.

Yeah but it's about convenience, and what people can afford these days. With the prices of everything going up, and no-ones wages going up, people can't afford to go to butchers, and have to opt for the pig that was beaten before turned into tesco value pork sausages, rather than one that was free range/organic and costs a lot more.

There aren't many butchers around either now, because of the supermarkets selling cheaper meat.

Getting a bit of extra sausage from the butcher eh?

 

Some of the dirty minds around here may read something into that, but not me.

Well it costs around £4-6 for a crappy piece of steak from the supermarket anyway.

 

Butchers aren't really that much more expensive.

I remember the days when I could easy afford to buy nice fillet steak every week, I'm not paying what they ask for these days for a little piece of meat, might as well order a Chinese takeaway for that price and then you don't even have to cook.

I like Chinese takeaway because the one near me uses cat meat.

You sure it's cat meat and not rat meat Warren, they seem to be getting a lot bigger nowadays, more than big enough for a nice portion of rat chow mein.

 

You seen the size of this one?

I realised that recently, kept thinking butchers are expensive but went in the one up the road that is all local stuff and it is no more expensive than the supermarket (unless you buy the cheap value rubbish) and you can get exactly what you want then.
