Remarkable proof the horsemeat scandal – and cover-up – goes back to 1948!

(not satire – it’s UK today! And yesterday. And the day before that.)

You probably thought the scandal of horsemeat secretly being used in place of beef is a modern phenomenon.

So did I.

But here’s a Pathe report which shows just how long the scandal has been going on in the UK – since 1948:

BRITISH PATHE – The Horsemeat Scandal 1948

As the Pathe man says in the news report:

Public feeling grows against the sinister trade. The country demands action ……..

.

And the country’s still waiting for action. And waiting.

It seems the longer this government’s in power – the further back in time they’re sending us.
