Supermarkets were facing a backlash last night after claiming it was ‘unnecessary’ to spell out on labels whether meat comes from animals killed by religious slaughter.
Religious groups from all faiths, vets and animal welfare groups joined calls for new labels to identify halal or kosher meat.
But retailers claimed that shoppers do not care...And you might have been right, they didn't until the issue was raised. What do you think now?
...and even argued that there is not enough room on packs for new labels.Heh! Nice try.
Did it work with all those rules they brought in for fat/salt/sugar content? No? Well, why do you think it'll work with this?
David Cameron believes there is no need to change the law.Game over, man, GAME OVER!
