Horse meat or horseshit, we can’t tell anymore!

I really could do with a Byron beef burger right now. Horseburger. Beef, horse, beef, horse, I mean beef burger! Lord knows what is packaged in our food in Britain anymore. The hunt for cheaper and cheaper things but higher and higher profits is driving regard for truth, integrity and quality to hell. It simply isn’t possible for everything to get cheaper while at the same time we all get richer and companies make even more profits. More profits can only arise if people spend more and/or prices rise and people will only spend more if they earn more (or get more in debt) but if prices rise then things are not getting cheaper and if people earn more then profits are constrained. Simple economics; without higher productivity, something has to give. Next we thought we were buying spring water but it was actually purified passed water. Of course, there is no public health risk for afterall it’s full of vitamins 🙂

Byron, Get It On!

If you’ve eaten at Bryon, the burger place, you know it’s worth waiting a few minutes for a table. But once you’re sat down and your stomach juices are raring to go it’s just not on waiting another half-hour for your meat. I know you guys are popular and you’re busy but get more staff in if you need to – there are 2.5 million unemployed in the UK including 1m youths so there’s no excuse. Byron in Islington, this is for you.
