There is a myth in this country that the one billion animals killed every year have had a ‘nice’ life.
Anyone who believes this must live in cloud cuckoo land.
Whether animals are slaughtered in a ‘humane’ way or by a ritual killing, the end result is still the same.
Millions of us are eating halal food without knowing it.
But what people should really be concerned about is whether the meat they are consuming is in fact chicken, beef or lamb and has not been contaminated.
Has everyone got short memories? Who remembers the horse meat scandal?
Anyone who’s a touch squeamish or worried about animal welfare should become a vegetarian.
