A guide for potential immigrants to the worst parts of UK culture

Sourpuss MPs concerned by a possible flood of Romanian and Bulgarian immigrants in 2014 are considering a negative ad campaign to put citizens in the East European countries off a move to Britain. They hope to divert would-be migrants to other European countries, or convince them to stay at home, and don't mind airing the UK's dirty laundry in the process. Travel? Terrible. Sun? No sir. Jobs? Not here. But their list of stains on the national reputation is far from exhaustive, so we've thought up a few more.

Asda clears shelves of value burgers as horsemeat scandal knocks £300m off Tesco market value

Suppliers in continental Europe are suspected of being the source of horsemeat found in beef products, a processing firm has claimed

A total of 27 beef products were analysed by the FSAI with 10 containing horse DNA

Horse DNA discovered in beefburgers on sale at Tesco and Iceland

Iceland Foods Ltd; update.

Since publication of this article, Iceland have informed us  that only a very small (0.1%) level of horse DNA was found in two of their own brand quarter pound burgers when tested by the FSAI.  They point out that result is well below the threshold level  of 1% which the UK FSA applies as indicative of contamination or adulteration, and that a test result of 0.1% is so low that it could amount to a “trace” level. Iceland subsequently tested samples of burgers from the same production batch to the same tolerances used by the FSAI and no evidence of any horse DNA was found. Iceland also state that since then over 2000 tests of Iceland beef products have been carried out and no trace of horse meat or DNA has ever been found.
